Best Answer

Point Guard - The one who usually has the ball and calls the plays.

Average Height (5'11"- 6'4")

Preferred (6'2"- 6'4")

Shooting Guard - Usually a pretty good shooter or a good defender to stop the other team's good shooters

Average Height (6'3"-6'8")

Preferred (6'5" - 6'7")

Small Forward - Maybe the most athletic guy on the court, they need to be able to pass, rebound, defend and score nowadays.

Average Height (6'6"-6'8")

Preferred (6'7" - 6'8")

Power Forward - Usually pretty athletic and strong and has to be able to rebound and play down near the basket but nowadays you need to be able to step out and hit mid range jumpshots.

Average Height (6'7" - 6'11")

Preferred (6'9" - 6'10")

Center - Usually the strongest and biggest player on the court, needs to be able to defend, score, rebound, and block shots.

Average Height (6'9" - 7'1")

Preferred (6'10" - 7'0")
