Basketball Player Positions

BASKETBALL PLAYER POSITIONS

Point Guard Expected to run the team's offense by controlling the ball and making sure it gets to the right players at the right time.  The team's best dribbler.  Must be willing to pass the ball to teammates.

 

Shooting Guard Often are shorter, leaner and quicker than forwards and are the best jump-shooting players in the game. 

 

Small Forward On offense they are well balanced between power-oriented and shooting-oriented.  On defense the will seek steals and rebounds.

 

Power Forward The Power Forward plays a role similar to center.  On offense they play with their back to the basket and on defense they play on low blocks or against the opposing power forward. Typically, they are one of the largest players on the court with the height of a center but more muscular.  The are expected to be aggressive when pursuing rebounds and score most of their points on the low post as opposed to taking jump shots from farther away.

 

Center The center's primary role is simply to be very large, and to use their size to score and defend from a position close to the basket.
