They are not always the biggest guys on the team. They sometimes are not even the smallest, but NBA point guards play big roles for teams in the NBA playoffs. When the game comes down to the wire, they are the ones who will feed you the ball or take the shot for themselves. No matter what you do Point Guards are important. Think about it, your team is down one point with 20 seconds left to play in the game. It is the point guard’s job to get the ball to their playmaker. Or to dribble out the clock and take the shot himself, a team can not function without a point guard that is there to keep the whole team together. Teams sometimes have multiple point guards so each guard gets the opportunity to work on their chemistry with the whole team. This is even true for teams like the Cleveland Cavaliers and the Phoenix Suns who each have outstanding weapons on offense. Without Point Guards there would be nobody that was made to feed the ball to you in the post, or to draw the double team and free up someone in the corner for the open three. No matter where you play basketball a point guard is always one of the anchors of the team.
