What positions does a point guard play?

That is a funny question, because a point-guard is a position. So, we can say that a point-guard is a member of a basketball team. The point guard is the leader of the offense. In a sense he is the pitcher or quarter back of basketball. If you watch basketball either live or on TV, you will notice that when a play begins, someone is "bringing the ball up the court." That someone is more than likely the team's point guard. Point guards are usually smaller and quicker than most of the other players, although this is not always the case. i.e. Magic Johnson. Some great point guards that have played the game include Bob Cousy, John Stockton, Gary Payton, Jason Kidd and Tim Hardaway.
