Typically, there are five (5) main positions: two guards, two forwards, and a center. By rule, there is nothing that any one of these positions can do that the others cannot. But they all have traditional "roles" which they usually adhere to. They are listed below.
However, note that many basketball coaches tend to simplify their offense by starting five players who are either wings or posts. Posts play around the basket, and usually get the ball when they're already in a position to score. Wings are ball-handlers with a better outside shooting ability, usually, or at least have the skill to take their defender off the dribble and get to the basket for a closer shot.
There are a lot of rules for basketball, too many to be mentioned here. Click on the links under the "Related Links" heading below to view detailed information concerning the rules of basketball.
The game is a contest between two teams that play against each other. The team objective is to shoot the ball into the metal hoop or basket. The hoop or goal is ten feet from the floor.
A team has three positions. There is one center per team and plays at the post position, the area ten feet within the basket. The middle area is referred to the wing area and this is the where the forward plays. There are two forwards per team. There are two guards per team. The guard play at the top of the key.
The key is the area that reaches twenty feet from the baseline of the court. The players who have control of the ball are said to be on the offensive. The team without control of the ball is said to be on the defensive. The offensive team tries to shoot the ball into the hoop, also known as scoring, while the defensive team's objective is to try to keep the offense from scoring.
The offensive team, by putting the basketball into the hoop, can score one point, two points, or three points. The offense will score one point by scoring on a free shot or free throw. The free shot is given to an offensive player who was fouled by a defensive player.
The player on defense fouls the offense player by pushing, hitting, or otherwise coming into contact with the offense player. The charity shot is allowed to a player who can shoot at the basket without being contested. The offensive player who is fouled will receive two charity throws each time he or she is fouled.
The team will receive two points if the team shoots the ball into the hoop from within the three point line. If an offensive player puts the basketball in the hoop from outside the three point line he or she will score three points for his team. The team with the most points at the end of basketball games wins. Basketball is very easy to learn and fun to watch. The game is growing in popularity everyday.
In the NBA, there must be a minimum of 10 players on a team and a maximum of 15 players. Only 12 players can be active to play a game, and 10 players must be active with 5 starters and 5 reserves, or bench players. There are 5 from each team playing on the court at any one time. If a team does not have 5 players on the court, the team forfeits and the other team automatically wins.
== == The official height of an NBA basketball hoop is 10 feet from the floor to the rim.
The free throw is 13 feet away from the front of the rim and 15 feet away from the backboard.
A basketball game (NBA) is technically only 48 minutes. However, with half-time, timeouts, fouls, and close games, a basketball game is actually around 2 1/2 hours.
The game is divided into 4 quarters, each 12 minutes long. Should the score be tied at the end of the fourth quarter, the game will go into a 5 minute overtime period. Should the game be tied at the end of overtime, there will be a 5 minute second overtime, and so on.
College basketball games are 40 minutes, with no quarters but instead two 20 minute halves. If the score is tied at the end of regulation, the game will proceed into a five minute bonus period called overtime, similar to the NBA.

An assist is when player A passes the ball to player B and player B makes the shot in a short time, resulting in player A getting an assist.
The foul ''holding'' in basketball is when you are guarding some player and lets say they get past you and you hold onto their jersey, shorts, hand, etc.
When the offender (person on offense) is driving (dribbling toward the basket) the defender may be called by the referee as a block. That is when you are moving with the offender, and you block them by sticking your foot out. A block is considered a foul, so be careful. I would suggest to avoid getting called for a block by picking a spot on the court and getting there before the offender. If you do that, keep your feet on the ground (if you move its a foul) and stand still. The offender will most likely dribble into you, and the offender will be called for a charge (ramming into you) and the offender will get the foul.
However, a block could also be a blocked shot or pass. that is when the defender hits the ball in the air. This is sometimes called getting stuffed. If the defender makes physical contact when doing this, then it is a foul on them. If they don't make physical contact, then it is not.
The NBA adopted the 3 point line at the start of the 1979-1980 season, which is of variable distance, ranging from 22 feet (6.7 m) in the corners to 23.75 feet.
A player is disqualified in NCAA basketball when being charged with their 5th personal foul.
No, I believe that's illegal in the NBA.
This is true for the NBA, but in most other leagues the rules in tis case are a lot more relaxed.
not really that high but I'm saying maybe 1 out of every 10 shot's (did this at the court) so like 10%.
Accuracy of probability increases with the number of attempts. Assuming 10% to be a good estimate then: The probability of making the shot on the first try is .1 or 10%. For 2 completions in a row the probability drops to: .1 x .1 or .01 or 1% (You will miss 99% of attempts). For 3 in a row the probability drops to: .1 x .1 x .1 or .001 (You will miss 99.9% of your attempts. Like anything else, the more you train the better adapted you become.
Lets say hypothetically you are a basketball player for the Los Angeles Lakers. It would be in your contract to stay in Los Angeles for as long as the contract requires. That meaning you could not leave the city without breaking the contract. If you do leave the city it would be breaking the contract do to a "traveling violation"
Movement while playing for your team is another such way to incur one fault where you run with the ball in hand and don't bounce it back

The semi-circle is also known as the restricted zone. The circle signifies the line where players can and cannot pick up a charge. If someone is trying to pick up a charge and is standing inside the semi-circle (or closer to the basket), then they are inside the restricted zone and will not pick up a charge, but rather a foul, having the other player involved shooting free throws. If the person is outside the restricted zone, then the person gets the charge and the other player picks up the foul.
On Dec. 15, 1891, James Naismith, a Canadian physical education instructor, invents basketball, while working at the Y.M.C.A. College at Springfield, Massachusetts On Jan 15, 1892, Triangle magazine in Springfield, MA published the rules for a brand new game: the one we know that began by attaching peach baskets to a suspended board. It is better known as basketball. More input from FAQ Farmers: * The Rules of basketball were formed by James Naismith. They were formed at a time were little knowledge was available. So they were formed as a way for a sport to be played indoors during the winter. They were formed by careful examination of People at the Y M C A and other sports such as soccer and football.
From the back of the free throw line to the inside of the baseline.
# The ball may be thrown in any direction with one or both hands. # The ball may be batted in any direction with one or both hands (never with the fist). # A player cannot run with the ball. The player must throw it from the spot on which he catches it, allowance to be made for a man who catches the ball when running at a good speed if he tries to stop. # The ball must be held in or between the hands; the arms or body must not be used for holding it. # No shouldering, holding, pushing, tripping, or striking in any way the person of an opponent shall be allowed; the first infringement of this rule by any player shall count as a foul, the second shall disqualify him until the next goal is made, or, if there was evident intent to injure the person, for the whole of the game, no substitute allowed. # A foul is striking at the ball with the fist, violation of Rules 3,4, and such as described in Rule 5. # If either side makes three consecutive fouls, it shall count a goal for the opponents (consecutive means without the opponents in the mean time making a foul). # A goal shall be made when the ball is thrown or batted from the grounds into the basket and stays there, providing those defending the goal do not touch or disturb the goal. If the ball rests on the edges, and the opponent moves the basket, it shall count as a goal. # When the ball goes out of bounds, it shall be thrown into the field of play by the person first touching it. In case of a dispute, the umpire shall throw it straight into the field. The thrower-in is allowed five seconds; if he holds it longer, it shall go to the opponent. If any side persists in delaying the game, the umpire shall call a foul on that side. # The umpire shall be judge of the men and shall note the fouls and notify the referee when three consecutive fouls have been made. He shall have power to disqualify men according to Rule 5. # The referee shall be judge of the ball and shall decide when the ball is in play, in bounds, to which side it belongs, and shall keep the time. He shall decide when a goal has been made, and keep account of the goals with any other duties that are usually performed by a referee. # The time shall be two 15-minute halves, with five minutes' rest between. # The side making the most goals in that time shall be declared the winner. In case of a draw, the game may, by agreement of the captains, be continued until another goal is made. Source: http://open-site.org/viewedit.cgi?cat=&edit_id=50871
You'll have your post or highest jumping player doing the tip standing at the inner circle facing the goal your shooting on. Normally your point guard stands in backcourt at the top of the key protecting the goal in case the other team gets the tip.
Two wings stand on either side of the tip on the outer circle, one in backcourt, one in front court. Then your power forward will stand opposite the point guard ready for the ball to make an easy basket.
I am a high school basketball official. Good Question. There is a rule on what to do if that situation arises. Rule 2-10 is about "correctable errors." It states that the officials may correct an error if a rule is inadvertently set aside and results in: a. Awarding of an unmerited free throws b. Failure to award an unmerited freethrow(s) c. Allowing the wrong player to shoot the free throws d. Allowing a player to shoot the free throws(s) at the wrong basket e. Erroneously awarding or canceling a score. You are interested in "D." Officials may correct this error (provided it is recognized during the first dead ball after the clock has properly started). No matter how many he/she made or missed at the wrong basket, the free throws are nullified and he/she shall shoot at the proper basket. During this, points scored, the time consumed and all related activity prior to the recognition of the error shall not be nullified; meaning if a team scored then the error is realized, that basket counts.
