What is the recommended height for basketball?

This depends on the position. Point guards are generally the shortest on the floor, going from around 5'10" to 6'4". However, there are taller guards (Magic Johnson) and shorter guards (Earl Boykins). Shooting guards are generally taller than the point guards, but not a whole lot. Shooting guards are generally between 6'4" and 6'7". Small forwards are the middle sized players, going from around 6'6" to 6'11". Power forwards are usually the second tallest, but sometimes are smaller than the small forwards. Heights range from 6'8" to 7'0". Centers are the tallest on the floor. They usually range in height from 6'10" to anywhere above. However, all position players do not need to be the heights listed. If you are good, it doesn't matter how tall you are.
