History of basketball
Basketball is a team sport (Olympic sport) in which two teams of five play against each other trying to score as many points as possible by throwing the ball into the opposing team’s basket. The date of basketball is considered to be December 21, 1891, and its founder – James Naismith.
He wanted to create a game that minimizes physical contact. With a lot of jumping, running and hand-eye coordination. Initially, the ball was thrown into wicker baskets hung on the balconies of the gym. First baskets did not have a hole at the bottom. After each successful throw, the ball was pulled out with special sticks. This was the beginning of this game.You can read more about the creator of this sport and the sport itself here.
