Shooting guards are usually the good scorers on the team. They are the second option to bring the Basketball up if the point guard is unable to do so, and are usually the second fastest on the team. Shooting guards are expected to be able to hit mid-range shots and three pointers when necessary.
THe shooting guard is often referred to as the "2" guard. Basically, the point guard is responsible for bring ball down and running the offense, penetrating and dishing to other players. The shooting guard is the other guard that will setup at the 3 point line for example and wait for the point guard to penetrate and draw his man, that way the point guard can dish to the shooting guard for the shot.
A normal basketball lineup includes two guards: the Point Guard and the Shooting Guard. Basketball positions are sometimes referred to by number, with the Point Guard being number 1 and the Shooting Guard being number 2, and sometimes referred to as the 2 guard. The point guard's main job is to bring the ball down the court, call the play, and then pass the ball to a teammate. Sometimes the point guard will be able to draw defenders to himself to free up a teammate. Generally the point guard is responsible for getting his teammates into the game, and for directing the offense.
The shooting guard, as the name implies, is more responsible for hitting outside shots. All basketball players have to shoot, pass, rebound, and defend. Great point guards include "pure" point guards like Steve Nash who excel at the duties specific to a Point Guard, and players like Magic Johnson who were also great rebounders and scorers. Similarly, great shooting guards included guys like Allan Houston who were great shooters, and guys like Michael Jordan who were even better known for other skills such as driving to the basket, rebounding, and playing great defense.
