A Swingman is the ultimate playmaker. Lebron James is a dream Swingman. He doesn't have to bring the ball up the court to run the offense. Once the ball goes to him, he's looking to make the best "play" for his team. That may involve posting somebody up, dribble driving, or making a great pass out of a double team. Usually when a swingman catches the ball in an offense, he is a scoring threat, so keep your head up at all times, watch out for double teams, and make the correct "play" for your team.
