I was just thinking about that... When I first got into the NBA in the early 1990s they were the Washington Bullets. Still seems slightly odd looking back at it.

Still in that time we've also seen the Hornets **** off to New Orleans, with a brief spell in Oklahoma City and then back to Charlotte to boot out the Bobcats.

And of course the scummy Thunder stealing the precious Supersonics from Seattle. I still hope one day soon we see the Sonic back in the NBA. Seattle is too big of a City to not have a team.

Washington DC is one of the most violent cities for gun crime in the USA, which is why they changed it I think

Yep, they changed the name to avoid the connotations of violence. Although I was surprised to learn that Milwaukee city has a serious gun violence problem. I know Philly, Chicago and Washington does, but that one surprised me.

Irving trade of the season so far. Raptors doing well. Beat the bulls again.

2. Shooting Guard (SG) - Usually the best shooter on the team and handy from 3 point range. Usually roams the perimeter looking for the ball for a quick 3, also essentially a back up PG. Defensively very similar to the Point Guard.

3. Small Forward (SF) - Usually the best players... Shoot from all ranges but also able to rebound too. On defence usually found in the paint area helping the Power Forward and Center to rebound.

4. Power Forward (PF) - Usually bigger than the SF and shooting is better closer into the basket than from the edge. Also one of the best rebounder on the team and blocks effectively for others to drive from deep to the basket. On defence usually found lurking near the Center to block the opposition's bigs and rebounding.

5. Center (C) - You may have heard of people like Shaq, Patrick Ewing etc. The big man! Usually the players over 7 foot. Some are athletic but usually they are a clumsy lumbering sort who are there to bulldoze people out of the way, make blocks for his team mates to exploit, and grab those loose balls from rebounds. Don't let him shoot from further than 2 foot away from the basket. Often the ones slam dunking. Defensively they basically do the same thing but blocking the opposition from scoring and winning rebounds. Won't tend to pass the ball far. Anything beyond their gravitational pull shooting or passing wise is almost certain to be over turned.

Hope that sort of helps. A lot of players tend to cross over roles... Two of the greatest players ever Michael Jordan and LeBron James have both flitted between SG/SF and Kobe Bryant was often SG/PG. You often get players equally adept as SF/PF (Carmelo Anthony) and PF/C (Tim Duncan, Dwight Howard) too.
thank you for this. a bloke at work has really gotten me into the nba, decided last year that philli will be my team (ben simmons being aussie plus alan iverson was a goat) never really understood positions but now i do.

also how good is embiid now? he can do everything even though hes a center, shoot 3s, drift past players with ease. Looks like the process is working

Embiid was always a top talent. He just had injury issues early in his career. Let's hope he doesn't go the way of Greg Owen.

I don't even know what to say about the Magic this season... Gone so poor again. Amazing how one trade 5 years ago is still affecting the team all these years later.

Looks competitive in the East though. West looking like Houston are Golden States only real competition. A bit disappointed with how little attention I have paid to the NBA this year. Trouble is I like to watch the games and I just haven't had the chance with work etc.

Enjoyed that tonight. Bumped into Bright, alderweireld, dembele , dier and some NBA players. Most notably John Amaechi.

Zaha got shown on the big screen, unlike a lot of the footballers there. World famous!

The Clippers and Pistons have agreed on a deal to trade Blake Griffin for Tobias Harris, Avery Bradley, Boban Marjanovic, a first-round and a second-round draft pick, league sources tell ESPN.

Nah, they had to do it, that Clippers team was going nowhere. Plus, they did a great job in getting away from Blake's mammoth contract.

The Cavs seem to be imploding right now. It's dangerous to doubt LeBron, but they are just defensively awful, I can't see them going far in the play-offs at this rate.

Rockets go top of the West on the back of a 10 game winning streak. I have to say I love the back court of Harden and CP3.

Raptors have gone top of the East above the Celtics.

Cavs in 3rd place. Kevin Love out long term with a broken hand and they traded away Isiah Thomas. Although it doesn't seem to have affected them too badly.

I get so confused with NBA trades, contracts and salary caps.

Big game for the Hawks too, they need a Wolves win in order to get their 1st round pick.
