Basketball playbook

A basketball playbook, like any sports playbook, involves compilation of strategies the team would like to use during games. The playbook starts as a canvas picture of the basketball court with all its boundaries and lines. On top of that, the playmaker can draw O's for players on offense, and X's for players on defense. Specifically however, playmaker will need to number them for different positions. They are:

#point guard
#shooting guard
#small forward
#power forward

The triangle offense is a very popular play.
