The 5 Most Important Positions In Sports
Face it, every sport needs a player who is important for their team and their sport. But there are some positions that every team needs a great player at that skill.
This is a list of the 5 most important positions in the 4 major sports. From the NFL, to the NBA, to the MLB and the NHL and even soccer, without these positions, good luck winning.
Yes they give the sign to the pitcher. But the pitcher can decide on his own what pitches he wants to throw, so the catcher doesn't make the list.
No. 5 Center (NBA)
Yes centers are very important. Just ask the Magic or Rockets whose best players are Centers. Thats why those 2 teams stay in contention year after year.(last year excluded because Yao Ming was injured). Without Dwight Howard or Yao Ming, the Magic and Rockets would be nowhere.
How did the Lakers win the title the last 2 years? Yes they have Kobe and yes they have Pau Gasol. But if you take Andrew Bynum out of the mix, they wouldn't have beaten the Magic or Celtics who have Kevin Garnett and now have Shaq.
No. 4 Goalie (soccer)
Yes very few balls don't even get close to the net. But imagine without a goalie how soccer games could end up.
No. 3 Point Guard (NBA)
For every NBA team, the PG calls the plays (Excluding Lakers, Cavaliers (last year) and Heat.)
Take the top PG's in the NBA:
They all call the shots for their team.
No. 2 Quarterback (NFL)
Imagine the Colts last season. Or even the past couple of years. If they didn't have Manning, let alone any QB, where would they be? They running game was terrible. They defense was middle of the pack.
Imagine the Saints without Brees, or the Patriots without Brady. Quarterbacks control the NFL on the field and every snap.
No. 1 Goalie (NHL)
I remember the NHL All Star Games because of their scores. 13-12 or 12-11. Imagine no goalie.
If their was no goalie, they would be no hockey.
