A forward is typically a taller player who is counted on to not only rebound and pass well, but needs to be fast and a good shooter, ball handler, and scorer. He is needed to take pressure off of the guards and center. He must also be a terrific perimeter defender. A typical professional forward ranges from 6 foot 6 to 6 foot 10 in height and 200 to 250 pounds, but weight doesn't matter.
