* POINT GUARD
* SMALL FORWARD
* POWER FORWARD
They make plays for others by passing the ball. They also know how to find their own shots, usually by driving to the basket.
They're usually little.
The main role for the shooting guard is to either defend or score. The role for a shooting guard really depends on what each team needs. If a team only needs a good defender, most likely the shooting guard will be a defender rather than a scorer.
The centers min jobs are to rebound and shoot inside shots. They are commonly the two tallest players near the "block" or little square biox near the goal.
Small forwards are basically shooting guards that are too tall and slow to play the shooting guard position. Small forwards tend to be good shooters and in some cases great scorers.
Power forwards play a role similar to that of center in what is called the "post" or "low blocks". They play offensively with their back to the basket on offense and position themselves defensively under the basket in a zone defense or against the opposing power forward on defense in man to man defense. Usually the big guy on the team and aggressive at getting rebounds and scoring from down low on the court. Power forwards must contend for every rebound and must understand how to box out for rebounds. They should have some low post moves, especially the hook shot.
