One of the most overlooked skills that every great point guard and every great leader possess is the ability to give reminders. If you learn to give reminders, your teammates will play better.
- We have two timeouts left.
- #12 is a Shooter.
- When we inbound the ball, they’re going to try and foul us so stay powerful.
If you give reminders, your teammates will play better. However, reminders are only useful before they’re needed. For example, if your teammate lets her player drain a three to put your opponent up by one and you run back down the court, yelling at your teammate for letting her player shoot, then you are not leading, you are complaining.
A good point guard will recognize a situation before it happens and give a reminder then. Instead of yelling at your teammate to get a hand up on the shooter after the shot is made, remind her at a dead ball, during a timeout or throughout the defensive possession. Now those reminders have a pretty good chance of affecting the play in your favor.
Get in the habit of of giving your teammates lots of reminders before they are needed because you never know which reminder will be needed.
- We only have one time out left.
- You can run the baseline.
- #12 is left handed.
- We’re switching this back screen
Great floor leaders are in the habit of constantly giving relevant information to their teammates before they need it.
