Smart Heaves Leadership Role on Brooks

The point guard often is a team’s leader, but it takes more than simply bringing the ball up the court to fill that role.
As a veteran, that’s something Aaron Brooks understands. Signed by the Kings in July, Brooks had been coveted by them for several years because he’s a young player (27) with experience who can grow with a young core of players.
“What I say to him is to be yourself, don’t wait to lead,” Kings coach Keith Smart said. “Leaders don’t wait, and I’m trying to pull that out of him to lead and help players lead, because he’s going to have the ball. I believe the point guard has to do that because he’s going to have the ball the majority of the time.”
