  1. Point Guard: usually the fastest player on the team organizes the team's offense by controlling the ball and making sure that it gets to the right player at the right time.
  2. Shooting Guard: creates a high volume of shots on offense; guards the opponent's best perimeter player on defense.
  3. Small Forward: often primarily responsible for scoring points via cuts to the basket and dribble penetration; on defense seeks rebounds and steals, but sometimes plays more actively.
  4. Power Forward: plays offensively often with his back to the basket; on defense, plays under the basket (in a zone defense) or against the opposing power forward (in man-to-man defense).
  5. Center: uses size to score (on offense), to protect the basket closely (on defense), or to rebound.

 

Most plays are made up but the pick and role is used by almost all teams in the NBA to 4-8 grade teams. The number 2 player blocks number 1ís opponent.No.1 has ball.
