The modern NBA is regularly described as a “positionless” league. To be sure, the way we view positions has radically changed. 

In the past, positions were rigidly defined. Moreover, they were primarily defined by height. If you were 6’10, you were going to play power forward – even if you played like a point guard. By contrast, today’s league has significantly looser rules.
