WHAT IS BASKETBALL?

There are many techniques in basketball games for shooting, passing, dribbling and rebounding. Basketball has specialised player positions and offensive and defensive structures (player positioning). Typically, the tallest and strongest members of a team will play the centre or power forward positions, while slightly shorter and more agile players will play small forward.
