Number of players on a basketball team

How many players are there on a basketball team?

5

Basketball is extremely popular all over the world.  It is interesting to know the fact that basketball is a sport played by two teams of five players on a rectangular court. The main objective is to shoot a ball through a hoop 18 inches (46 cm) in diameter and 10 feet (3.0 m) high mounted to a backboard at each end. It is interesting to know the fact that the tallest and strongest members of a team will play the center or power forward positions, while slightly shorter players will play small forward.  Moreover, the shortest players or those who possess the best ball handling skills and speed play point guard or shooting guard.
