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)
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
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.
Position: Pg/Sg is what I play for my team
Strengths: I'll post a vid tomorrow and let you guys judge that
I would play any position if I had to. But I would prefer pg.
Position: combo guard
Strengths: Elite quickness and speed, killer crossover, deep range, quick hands allows on ball steals, I can dunk lol
Weaknesses: Small size, not defined postion, over dribbles at times
Player Comparison: Monta Ellis with range
Position : PF/C
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 : SF
Age:18 (almost 19)
Strengths: Getting to the rim, finishing with contact, passion/leadership, basketball IQ, mid-range game
Weaknesses: Inconsistent outside game, off-ball handles, controlling emotions
Height: With shoes 6'0.25''...without shoes 5'11''
Weight: Right now about 198 lbs...i go between 195-200 regularly
I played on the wing...i was a slasher who could occasionally stroke the outside shot...averaged like 7.4 ppg...starter...not a serious basketball player-lacrosse was my sport
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.
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.
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 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...
Stop hating you just mad you a scrub
LMAO, OK Monta Ellis...haha, I guess you'll be in the draft next year huh? I could beat your small ass, don't worry bout my game. And dunking on 8 foot rims doesn't mean you can dunk little man, LOL...
You doin all this rappin who do you play like oliver miller I got videos of me playin so lemme see something of YOU not somebody else
Some random video proves nothing, just STFU kid...oh, I mean Monta, sorry, LOL
Im still waiting on something from you or you didnt play in high school its aite if you scream stuff from the sideline we know that you a bum
Weakness: Jump shot is not the most consistent, Tends to try and play like Gilbert Arenas at time jackin up 3pters, Short in height, Doesnt try the hardest on defense, Can be too flashy at times, Gets mad at teamates if they suck
LMAO, that's all...obviously not too good based on these traits...
I got more
Nice open jumpers with no defense...LMAO, once again, what the &$#%#&@! does that prove dookie??? Get the &$#%#&@! outta here, Im done with this kid
Somebody draft this WizKid, he can make open shots, BRAVO!!! LOL
Im done arguing, it's pointless, it's obvious your an All Star, hahahaha
Slim you aint showed me nuffin yet you keep rappin at first it was a random video now your Jay Bilas.......you come straight outta comic book youngin
"you come straight outta comic book youngin"
what does that even mean? I don't understand ebonics very well, sorry, please speak english, LMAO...get off my nuts you clown
You gotta picture of yourself on your profile, it's of some Spic looking kid, and videos of some black guy? Which one is you? I mean really, who are you trying to convince, me or yourself??? HAHA
Look I understand your an unskilled, slow, computer dude but if you insist on hating on someone can you back it up with some evidence of your accomplishments instead of using all these hollow comebacks.......
If you wanna duck the question, which one is you??? that's fine...because your the one trying to prove me wrong obviously...I don't have to prove &$#%#&@! to you, but your trying reaaalllly hard to prove something, what it is I don't know yet...
If you take &$#%#&@! so personally on a sports forum, I can only imagine how much of a baby you are on the court...this place is for opinions, not arguments, but, YOU STARTED IT...
I didnt take nuffin personally you the one that minuses everything i post and pick apart my grammar when you sayin stuff like "which one is you?" look you obviously amazed at the first video so you didnt bieleve me then you went to my player profile picked apart my weaknesses then you say my picture doesnt match the video just cuz im a lil lighter in my picture then you pick apart my other video of me practicing and say I started the argument when you came on here talkin bout everyone...........you my friend are a big contradiction
but anyway Im a:
quick, good speed, wet jumper, pretty nice handle, smart defender, good leaping ability. my only weakness is i hat eplaying with ppl that think they kno everything or shoot 2 much. thats rite. i have no weakness
O no dont say you dont have a weakness or massah Jay dipt1982 Bilas will say you think you Jordan
LMAO, you one of them lil buddies that likes to talk &$#%#&@! on the computer, little internet thug...your the one posting videos of a guy that's not you, pipe dreams???
Everybody's gotta weakness, but like I said earlier, my point was that people over exaggerate... Wizkid, u mad? It seems like it...u did take it personally or you wouldn't have wanted to start arguing in the 1st place.
Strengths: Defense, Hustle, Shooting off dribble, Pull up jumper, Rebounding, Passing
Weaknesses: Ball-handling, Catch-N-Shoot, Strength, Ability to Create
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.
