Word. BBall IQ is a way of describing a player's smarts and overall feel for the game. It isn't a stat, like rebound percentage or assist to TO ratio.

Someones mad that Westbrook got called out for making dumb plays.


Just because someone hasn't made a test for it doesn't mean it doesn't exist.

Did IQ or intelligence exist before the 19th century? By your logic it didn't because a test hadn't been made for it.

Just because we can't give it an exact number doesn't mean we don't have a feel where people would place compared to others.

With all the slang words and words we butcher in the king's english, why does this bother you so much? When people say it, they clearly mean "Basketball Intelligence".

"Metal Rim attached to a backboard with a hanging net ball intelligence" is the correct term, you're right.

You sir (or madam) are correct, after all it is not really a basket. All baskets I have seen have a bottom to them. They should have changed the name to net ball as soon as they switched out the peach baskets.

BB IQ is totally different than normal IQ. Michael Jordan has a low IQ for example.

Anyway, I certainly agree that basketball IQ is made up. It's just that people love storylines and thus make up stuff like "low basketball IQ" and "fake tough guy" as an excuse to hate on players they dislike.
