There are many kinds of defenses, and some coaches use their own made up forms of defense. The most common forms of defense are zone, 2-3 defense (two players in a line around the free-throw line and three players in a line with one on the right wing, one under the basket and one on the left wing), 3-2 defense, 1-3-1 defense, man to man defense, and full press defense. You can also add any kind of trapping to any one of those defenses.
