  • 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:

    1. Have three points of contact on the basketball so it won’t get knocked out of your hands.
    2. Keep your elbows wide, like spears, so there is space between you and the defense.
    3. 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.
