What Basketball Position Should I Play
Historically, only three positions were recognized (two guards, two forwards, and one center) based on where they played on the court: Guards generally played outside and away from the hoop and forwards played outside and near the baseline, with the center usually positioned in the key. During the 1980s, as team strategy evolved after the three-point field goal and the three-point arc were added to the basketball court. More specialized roles developed, resulting in the five position designations used today.
