The best playmakers in the game are not afraid of pressure. They welcome it. They thrive on it. On the rebound, on the wing or in a trap, their default mode is the power position.
For the power position to be most effective:
- Have three points of contact on the basketball so it won’t get knocked out of your hands.
- Keep your elbows wide, like spears, so there is space between you and the defense.
- Pivot your body as a unit so you don’t get a player control foul.
Playmakers that master this position allow themselves to have power, poise, and vision under pressure.
