Today, the NBA showcases plenty of ball-dominant point-guards who focus on gettting their own shot off and have a “score first” type of mentality. A lost art in today’s game of basketball is a point-guard who truly knows how to facilitate and circulate an offense. Teddy Parham Jr. is the epitomy of a true point-guard.
The 17-year-old from Notre Dame High School (Sherman Oaks, CA) has an understanding of the game that stands out from most of his peers.
“A great point-guard is someone who makes sure his team plays with great chemistry and doesn’t fall asleep on defense or offense and makes sure everything is organized,” Parham says.
Teddy has an uncanny ability to anticipate things before they happen and is always making the smart play. He has an ability to be a true floor general, which is a talent few kids posses.
He passes the ball very well, gets others involved, and controls the tempo of the game.
Currently, Teddy is playing with his summer AAU basketball squad “Cal Supreme” and is looking to head into his senior year with some momentum.
