The equipment that they started with is a soccer sized ball and also a peach basket in 1891. In 1906, the peach basket was finally replaced by metal hoops with backboard.
The correct answer to this question is 1906. The peach basket was used when Dr. James Naismith created the sport in 1891. He created it at just 30 years old. His creation came when he was a director at the YMCA. Naismith created it because he had a challenge from his boss to do something that would combat the rowdiness of the class, while also keeping them active.
Naismith has his name on several parts of basketball, including writing the rules of the game and creating the basketball program for the University of Kansas. The baskets used were to hold peaches.
