That all depends on the coach. There is no specific spot that someone stands on offense and defense. You will stand in different spots for different forms of defense and different spots for the type of offense you are running.

That depends on what defense and offense your coach wants to run.

There are no specific defense positions. Depending on where the coach wants you to stand, that is where your position will be. By means of guards and forwards, there are the same positions as on offense.

Fowards: stand down low on the blocks. Their job is to get rebounds and defend the basket. Center: stand in the center of the paint on defense and usually on a block on offense. They have the same job as fowards Guards: The stand on the wings or elbows. On defense the guard the people on the other team. On offense they are usually the ball handlers: they can either take a jump shot, penetrate to the basket, or pass it to the fowards or center for a lay up.

OFF stands for offense and DEF stands for defense.

The guard is, in defense, the person who stands in the front. When the offense dribble the ball down, the guard is the first able to contact the ball. They stand in the front of the box, the part closest to the half court line.

To get into professional basketball players should play at a college level. Height is also a good factor, most players stand at 7 feet tall.

It depends what line you are playing on, for offense, the 3-point stand with your right leg slightly farther back than the left, for defense, the 2-point stand, slightly squatting down.

Two players stand opposite each other and the ref tosses up a ball the players have to elevate and hit the ball to where ever they want the ball to go.

offense: basketball, you shoot through the hoop to score. baseball, you have to hit the ball then run all the way around the bases to score. (basketball gets higher scores, and the points are spread around more, and its much funner.) defense:basketball, its more physical, where you can actually try to stop them from scoring by blocking their shots and stealing the ball. baseball, you can stand at a certain position and do something with the ball if it comes to you. (basketball is a much more physical and quicker paced game- more involvement from every player) all together: basketball is mostly a physical sport, and baseball is not.

The official height for an NBA basketball hoop/stand is 10 feet.

The starting players have to stand outside of the center court circle, except for the two players jumping for the tip-off. The two "jumpers," usually the centers, stand opposite each other on opposite sides of the center court line facing their goals in the middle of the circle. The players outside of the circle may stand anywhere, but they usually line up around the permimeter of the center circle.

Defense of the Ancients.

A game of basketball starts with what is called a 'jump ball'. Two players will stand in the circle at the center of the court. One of the referees will toss the ball up in the air between the two players. They will jump up and try to tip the ball to one of their teammates, And then shoot to the basket, If its possible to win. :)

It stands for National Basketball Association.

E in FootballE doesn't have a position. There's a TE and DE, tight end and defensive end. E would stand for End. On a football field there is a Defensive End that plays on the defensive line, a Tight End that usually plays on the offensive line and is a pass receiver, and a Split End who is a wide receiver.Until 1965, NCAA mandated it's players to play a one platoon system meaning that one unit played both offense and defense. The E position meant that the player played on the outside or ends of the line. Ends played both DE on defense and TE on offense.
