All players in basketball play both offense and defense.
Double team is when two defensive players are guarding one offensive player. That offensive player is usually the player in possession of the ball.
The midfielder of course!(:
Yes, as do offensive players.
A foul in basketball can range from two different kinds: offensive and defensive fouls, as well as technical fouls. Offensive fouls are fouls when you are on the offensive end, like pushing someone to the side to shoot or pushing slapping someone on the arm to get to the basket. Defensive fouls are the same, but on the defensive end. Technical fouls are called when you do something improper in basketball. For instance, yelling at the referee, throwing the basketball in the stands, and yelling at other players will result in technical fouls. There are offensive and defensive fouls in basketball. A defensive foul occurs when a defender makes contact with the player in possession. An offensive foul occurs when the player with the ball makes contact with a defender who's arms are inside his body. If an offensive player runs into a defensive player whose position is established (both feet are planted) or the offensive player drops his shoulder or pushes off with his arm, then the contact is deemed an offensive foul (foul against the offensive player) and is usually called a "charge." Flagrant fouls occur when one player grabs another and pulls him down, or a player is injured as a result of a hard foul. Technical fouls include defensive three-second penalties and, at the discretion of the official, when a player or coach exhibits unsportsmanlike conduct. By definition a foul is "when one player gains an illegal advantage over another through physical contact". In layman's terms, physical contact between two players is not illegal. However, if that contact creates an advantage (as in a shot was affected or a player could not move freely to another position on the court) then it is deemed a foul. If you are Thomas Robinson from the University of Kansas apparently all you have to do to be called for a foul is be on the court.
At any time, there are 9 defensive players and 1 to 4 offensive players on the field.
Offensive: Peyton Manning Defensive: Bob Sanders
when no player or team has posession of the ball. loose balls can be from deflected passes that both offensive or defensive players can scrimage for (going after a 'loose ball')
They are grouped into positions. Those positions are called attack (offensive half) defense midi (both offensive and defensive players).
A technical foul will be charged
A rebound in basketball is when a player gets the ball after a missed shot. Usually taller players will have an advantage when it comes to getting rebounds so they will average more rebounds per game. There are two types of rebounds, offensive and defensive. A defensive rebound is a rebound that you get after an opponent misses a shot and an offensive rebound is a rebound a player gets after one of his teammates misses a shot.
