More Terms

A while back I talked about some sport terms. Today I’m going to list some other unique terminology associated with the sporting world. Basketball likes to number their players 1 – 5. One is the point guard. He is in charge of running the offense. Two is the shooting guard. Number three is the shooting forward. He is usually the lighter of the two forwards, moves better, and can score in a variety of ways. Four is the power forward, and he is the bigger body called on to rebound and score on the interior. That leaves five which is the center position normally reserved for the tallest player, and he often plays with his back to the basket. He is the enforcer on defense, the muscle under the basket, and the guy who can drop step to the basket to score. This is the normal offensive scheme, but today a lot of teams adapt these numbers to fit their personnel. If you play three guards, number three is your third guard and four and five are mainly forwards. If you employ a 1-2-2 setup, then one is the point guard, two and three are shooters, and four and five are power players. This gives you an idea on the numbering scheme in basketball.
