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.
