No, any player standing within the "paint", or rectangular area directly in front of the basket, can be charged with a 3 second violation for standing in front of the basket for too long.

What is the curved line on the floor under the basketball net used for?

it is a restricted area that defenders are not allowed to stand in to take a charge (or offensive foul). They are permitted to stand in the area, but if an offensive player charges into them or knocks them over it will be their fault (because they are standing under the basket, and the offensive player has the right to land on the floor after a layup/dunk/shot).

What do the positions in Basketball do?

The point guard is the one who will take the ball down the court and be the main ball handler. The forward is usually down by the basket and one of the tallest or strongest on the team. The forward will "post" or block the defender from getting the ball, receive a pass from a guard and go in for a bunny shot. The center is the player who jumps for the ball in the beginning of the game and plays the same position as the forward. The guards are the other two players who stand on the "wings" or foul line extended usually and set picks, receive a pass or drive the ball to the basket.
