Positions

I know I make a lot of threads like this with comparisons and such but I am curious to everyone's positions that they have played or play now and their strengths and weaknesses of their game.

Position: Shooting Guard/Small Forward/Power Forward(occasionally)
Age: 15
Strengths: Catch and Shoot, Pull up jump shot, off the dribble, posting up, passing, court vision and quickness
Weaknesses: dribbling, rebounding, getting to the rim, finishing through contacting, and getting to the free throw line consistently
Weight: 155
Height: 6'1 and a half almost 6'2

Also say why you prefer playing this position or maybe why your coach has you playing a certain position or had you play a certain position.

For myself I prefer playing guard but depending on the needs of my teams that I play on, for school I play PF/SF because of my team's lack of size and for AAU I play Guard because of my ability to find the right guys at the right moment and my consistent shooting stroke on the perimeter (3pointers and mid range). I am trying to transition to play PG but my ball handling needs a lot of work and I need better ball control when I play at full speed otherwise it is a automatic turnover, for my size I am not a great rebounder when I play SF/SG and I tend to hang on the perimeter, when I play PF I am close to the basket and am able to grab easy boards. As a SG/SF I am not able to get to the rim at will due to my mediocre ball handling skills, and even when I may get past a defender I will not be able to convert the basket through contact, I sometimes do not get to the free throw line during games do to being on the perimeter a lot and not being able to get to the basket.

Postition: Power forward

Position : PF/C
Age:18
Strengths: Power and Rebounding. Good passer and a pretty good shooter. I work my butt off! I out rebounded and out scored guys who were 3 to 4 inchs taller then me. And i finish well around the rim!
Weaknesses: Not all that tall for a post. Not a good ball handler. I am not a very high jumper.
Weight: 240 not fat lol

I played center for my highschool because we didnt have much height but i played PF in AAU and Summer league. I have a pretty good skill set for a PF/C.

Position: PG Age:

Position: PG
Age: 17
Strengths: on/off ball defense (allways guarding the best opposing backcourt player), passing, ball handling, creativity (I can create my own shot and draw some fouls on the way to the rim), quickness, drive and kick, take over games, decent athlete
Weaknesses: Can be a streaky shooter at times, sometimes trying to force the issue, sometimes beeing to flashy instead of making the simple play, sometimes my emotions get the best of me, off-ball play
Height: somewhere around 6'0''
Weight: 150 lbs

comparison (not to serious): something between the creativity of Jason Williams and the defensive mind-set of Rajon Rondo

I wasn't the best or most talented player on my team, but I worked my butt of to the point where I can say, that I'm the most polished.
And I absolutly hate the feeling, when a player beats me off the dribble, so that pushes me to try to be the best defender everytime I step on the court.

Position SG/SF Age

Position SG/SF
Age 22
Strengths: on/off shooting. Can shoot from virtually anywhere on the court, and do it with either hand. Shoots free-throws at a very high percentage. Tries his best on defense, plays hard, and always tries his best to go for loose balls. Very coachable, will do anything a coach asks of him. Willing to pass the ball to find the best shot although cannot see the court very well.
Weaknesses: Not athletic at all. Not very fast. Can be a streaky shooter at times. Shoots whenever he is open, and sometimes tends to be a chucker from 3pt range. I do my best to stay in front of my man, but in most cases, more athletic, and more speedy players beat me to the rim.
Height 6'1-6'2
Comparison: A shorter Reggie Miller
I know I don not have a shot at making the NBA, but I do like to play and watch the game, especially video games. I am actually better at the video game version than the actual game.

Everybody over-glamorizes

Everybody over-glamorizes their own games, if everybody played the way they claim they can, we'd have a lot more players in the NBA...but people just like to over exaggerate...A LOT...

Position: SG/PG Age:

Position: SG/PG
Age: 14
Strengths: Defense, Hustle, Shooting off dribble, Pull up jumper, Rebounding, Passing
Weaknesses: Ball-handling, Catch-N-Shoot, Strength, Ability to Create
Weight: 125
Height: 5'5"

I prefer playing shooting guard because I am a pretty good shooter and I love to score. Sometimes my coaches put me in at PG because of my lack of size and the teams I play for have good size at each position. I'm not really good at PG though because I need to improve my ball-handling. I often struggle to create for my self and others because of my ball-handling. That's why I think my ideal position is shooting guard even though I am undersized. I pray to get taller everyday.
