120 years have passed since James Naismith invented basketball in Springfield, Mass., and we finally have a fairly good grasp on the various player types, their attributes and their playing styles; we have the big men, the guys in the paint, getting boards and playing tough defense, plus knocking in the easy points under the hoop.

We have your small forwards, shooting guards, and everything in between. These guys are your workhorses, the ones who do a lot of your best shooting, and the closer you are to small forward, the more rebounding you're going to do as well.

Finally, we have your point guards. They can do all sorts of things, but they're the floor generals. They pass, and pass a lot. Without them, the offense doesn't move.
