If you ever play on a court with people who take basketball seriously long enough, you will definitely hear the term Basketball IQ.
But…What Is Basketball IQ?
If you ask any baller there will be a different definition of what IQ is and where there may be similarities in each definition, I’ve found one which most effectively sums up all the ways people see basketball IQ to be is…
This umbrella term covers almost any smart decision made on the court in order to get the advantage over the opposition. Remember basketball, like chess, is a read and react game which means that for every move a defender or opposition makes/can make something can be exploited in order to get the advantage.
Example: For a PG that cannot shoot well from 3 point range, the defender will likely be told to go under in a pick and roll situation, giving the harder option up to the attacker, which effectively gives the defence the advantage.
Read and Reaction and Basketball IQ is best displayed in the pros, because of the high skill sets they have, they have mastered whichever skill(s) necessary in order to be contracted by their team. With higher skill sets, there will need to be better read and react skills, because we are entering a scene where many bigs can shoot as well as the guards, even if that isn’t their role on the team!
See what I mean below!
From watching the Olympics, basketball is different abroad on the pro level I can tell you that much! High basketball IQ is essential!
