Best Answer

A Basketball stance is called a defensive stance.

The proper stance can be done by first bending your knees so you are close to the ground. Make sure your back is straight, but your knees are bent.

One hand is pointing towards two o'clock (pretend a clock is in front of you) and is out to the right (or left, depending on which way you are moving). This hand is meant to intercept the passing lane. The other hand is "digging" between your legs. This is for stealing a ball.
