In a regular game you must have 5 players on a team! the positions are 1 is point guard, 2 is a strong forward, 3 is another strong forward and may throw in the Basketball. 4 is a center and 5 is a strong post player!

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.
