ok the PG is point guard his job is to be a good passer and excellet dribbler (he would be deadlY if he can shoot well like Jameer Nelson) the SG or Shooting Guard he should be able to shoot well be and be a good passer.(like Kobe BrYnt) the SF or small forward should be able to shoot, pass and be able to to drive to the basket well(like LeBron James) the PF or power forward is to be aggressive strong and be able to be a good dominating source to score down low(like Kevin Garnet and theY are good if theY can shoot like Rashard Lewis KG and Tim Duncan.) and finallY the C or center these are the big men should be the biggest on the team theY should be verY tall have decent jumping skills dominant down low and should be the greatest power on the court(like Dwight Howard) now all of them should be good free throw shooters. And those are all the positions and what theY do.
