Small Forward
The small forward (SF), also known as the three, is one of the five positions in a regulation basketball game.[1] Small forwards are typically shorter, quicker, and leaner than power forwards and centers but taller, larger, and stronger than either of the guard positions.[1] The small forward is considered to be perhaps the most versatile of the five main basketball positions.[2] In the NBA, small forwards generally range from 6' 6" (1.98 m) to 6' 10" (2.08 m) without shoes; in the WNBA, they are usually between 5' 10" (1.78 m) to 6' 1" (1.85 m)

Basketball

Basketball, colloquially referred to as hoops,[1] is a team sport in which two teams, most commonly of five players each, opposing one another on a rectangular court, compete with the primary objective of shooting a basketball (approximately 9.4 inches (24 cm) in diameter) through the defender's hoop (a basket 18 inches (46 cm) in diameter mounted 10 feet (3.048 m) high to a backboard at each end of the court) while preventing the opposing team from shooting through their own hoop. A field goal is worth two points, unless made from behind the three-point line, when it is worth three. After a foul, timed play stops and the player fouled or designated to shoot a technical foul is given one or more one-point free throws
