Generally, the point guard and small forward are the two best dribbers/shooters on the team.
A deadball in basketball is when someone who is dribbling the ball, stops dribbling. That person is just stuck in that spot until a teammate comes to retrieve the ball. You can only be "dead" for 5 seconds with a defender on you.
It's a orange ball that you use when you play the sport basketball, it is usually made of rubber or leather and you use it by dribbling (bouncing the ball from your hand to the floor and back to your hand) or shooting the ball into the hoop (a tall pole with a metal loop with a net attached to it).
Double dribbling is where the person with the ball is either dribbling with 2 hands at the same time, or most likely, they are dibbling, then stop, and then start dribbling again. When you stop dribbling legally you only have 3 options: piviot, pass the ball, or shoot.
When someone fouls a person who is shooting gets a free throw.
A double dribble is when the person with the ball picks up the ball and stops dribbling it. After the person stops dribbling the ball, the person starts again without another person handling the ball. A legal dribble must never stop. The ball must be continually bounced and once the ball stops bouncing the player can not dribble again.
To score a goal (a "basket") in the game of basketball, the basketball must pass through the hoop of the opponent's goal. When a person is attempting to throw the ball so it will pass through the hoop and score a goal or basket, it is called taking a shot or shooting the basketball. This may seem strange because "shooting" is usually an action word associated with firearms, but the terminology is the same.
Whenever a basketball player is dribbling down the court and a defensive player is coming from behind, your teammates/fans yell "wolf" to tell the person with possession of the ball to beware that the defense is about to steal the ball.
i play basketball and if the person with the ball goes up for the shot and you slap him on the arm it is a shooting foul and you go to line to shoot free throws
point guard- the person who dribbles down the court 2 shooting guards- specialize in driving to the basket and 3 point shooting 2 posts- stand under the basket and rebound
