The correct answer to this question is D, One Of Two Players Who Usually Operate Near A Corner, On Both Offense And Defense. There are many types of forwards in basketball. One is the power forward. The power forward may also be referred to as the four.

Power forwards help the centers. When they play offense, their back is towards the basket. When they play defense, they are generally under the basket. Many debates on the greats of all time, but Tim Duncan is top on the list for being regarded as the most significant power forward of all time. There are also small forwards.
