Basketball which was invented by Dr. James Naismith in the year 1891. Dr. James Naismith is a graduate student and also a gym master. He devised 13 rules to direct the game, and the played is played between two teams using a soccer sized ball.

The first for basketball was held in Springfield College on December 2nd 1891. Basketball requires more skills than other games and it is the only electrifying game to man.

The main objective of basketball is for the players to make more goals and score points than their opponents by putting the round ball in a rim.

To be able to score a goal you must prevent your opponents from controlling the ball and also the team member must practice what is called team work.

The objective of basketball is to get the ball into the hoop to obtain a score for their team. This is done all while getting through defenders of the opposing team. The scorer not only faces the defenders who they are trying to pass, but they are also trying to block their shots and steal the ball.

Basketball was created in 1891 by James Naismith. He created basketball at 30 years old when trying to get a rowdy bunch of kids physical activity at the YMCA. Along with creating basketball, James Naismith wrote the basketball rules, as well as founded the basketball program at the University of Kansas.
