Quick History Basketball is one of the world’s most popular sports ranking just behind soccer with an estimated 450 million professional, amateur, and “just for fun” participants worldwide. In the United States, an estimated 41 million kids play basketball in organized and competitive leagues each year. Dr. James Naismith, a one-time Physical Education teacher is credited for inventing the game which gave his rowdy gym class a fun competitive game to play indoors during the winter months. The first ball used in the game was actually a soccer ball which would be shot into peach baskets.

Nevada high school basketball is governed by the NIAA (Nevada Interscholastic Activities Association) and the NFHS (the National Federation of State High School Associations). The 2011-2012 NFHS Basketball Rules Book is posted online and contains definitions, rules, and fundamentals of the game.

Controls the game and gets team the offense going. The point guard works the closest with the coach, calls plays and lets everybody knows what's going on. Point guards have a great IQ of the game, they are usually the best ball handler, normally the shortest player on the team, have a solid body type and are very athletic. The point guard keeps teammates involved reading openings and distributing the ball.

NBA Point Guards

(2-guard) Typically the primary scorer of the team on offense, efficient at the rim, tremendous athletic ability, high basketball IQ. and good defensive player. The shooting guard is typically taller than the point guard, but height and body type are different for every player. The shooting guard is usually the team's best perimeter shooter who can spot up shoot or drive to the basket and also tries to grab rebounds on offense.

NBA Shooting Guards

NBA Small Forwards

NBA Power Forwards

(3-guard) The all-purpose player on offense: aggressive and strong; tall enough to mix it up inside but agile enough to handle the ball and shoot well. Must be able to score both from the perimeter and from inside. The small forward is solidly built and brings enthusiasm with dunks and athletic offensive play.

Has muscles or at least a little bulk. Must be able to catch passes and hit shots near the basket. A good, rugged rebounder, but athletic enough to move with some quickness around the lane on offense and defense. Expected to score when given the opportunity on the baseline, much like a center, but usually has a range of up to 15 feet all around the basket.

NBA Centers Usually the tallest player on the team. Posts up to receive the ball backed to the basket and pivots to hit short jumpers, hook shots, and dunks. The center finds the open player in the paint and grabs offensive rebounds. Defensively the center blocks shots and makes it hard for the opponent to attack the basket. 13
