== == == == Power forwards are generally centers that are too short to play the center position. They usually are good rebounders, have a decent mid-range shot, and have good low post moves. Some examples of power forwards are Elton Brand, Tim Duncan, and Jason Thompson.

Teams usually play with two forwards. The power forward - also known as the number 4 - is usually the bigger of the two. He/she is responsible for scoring close to the basket and gathering rebounds on both offense and defense. Many power forwards can also play center.
