alway look to set up your teammates. Work on layups both left and right. Then you can attack the whole and go in looking to score and read the D. If they don't play you lay it in. If they do hit your big man or a shooter for an open shot.

You also have to have a coach that lets you have enough freedom offensively to let you do these things.

I think the best way to becoming a great PG is watching an instructional video and then having a protein shake.

You are only as good as your shoe. The nicer your shoe the better you play, if you get Nike Shox, for example, you jump higher.

Have confidence in yourself. You are the one in control of the ball, the defender has to react to what you do, keep that in mind. As a pg you should be able to dribble with either hand without looking at the ball. Being a point gaurd you must be aware of what is going on around you. Look for you teammates and always be willing to pass up that shot for someone else. You are the quarterback of the team, you need to be able to lead that team on the offensive end.

It goes without saying that your quickness, ballhandling and of course, DETERMINATION are crucial.

I'd also suggest watching the guys like Magic Johnson, Tony Parker, Allen Iverson, Jason Kidd (just to name a few) play. You can't find their plays on youtube.com

Also, you can search there for, for example, top 10 plays in 2007 or whatever.

On my website, specifially on this page, I have some tips on better ballhandling and all that. It's all free, so you can check it out if you want.
