The whistle blows, the ball is up, two players leap for it-tip-off! The athletes of the National Basketball Association (NBA) entertain millions of fans with their amazing dribbling skills, no-look passes, and daring dunks. The books in the Gareth Stevens series Tip-Off: Basketball give an exciting, close-up look at the five basketball positions, as well as the stars who have dominated at those positions. Readers also get advice about how to train to become future basketball superstars. So get your sneakers on, because it's time for tip-off!

In basketball, play "in the paint" is quick and hard hitting. That's why power forwards are often the toughest players on the court. With their backs to the basket, Power forwards protect the free-throw lane on defense and help their teammates score points on offense. They're also ferocious rebounders. Power Forward is sure to impress basketball fans with its stunning shots of the sport's greatest historic and current power forwards in action.
