Why do you have different basketball positions?

In basketball players have different roles to perform. Point Guards bring the ball up the court and distribute the ball and score when needed. Shooting Guards are primarily shooters---hence the name. Small Forwards are usually the best overall defender. Power Forwards and Centers are the tallest and prevent people from scoring inside and get rebounds and blocks.

How is basketball positions related to math?
