the basketball was invented in 1891 by a Canadian named James W. Naismith. He loved sports and was an instructor at the YMCA Training School in Massachusetts, he was looking for a suitable indoor game to keep his students fit and warm during the winter. He had formulated 13 rules, which are almost all still applied today. The basket was basically played with peach baskets, while the balloons had to be repaired manually after each point scored. Later, a hole was drilled in the bottom of the basket, which allows the ball to be taken out more easily using a long rod.
It was in 1906 that the fishing baskets were replaced by metal hoops with panels added to the back. It should also be noted that originally, this sport was practiced with a football. It was towards the end of the 1950s that Tony Hinkle, who wanted to find a ball that was more visible to players and spectators, introduced the famous orange ball which is still used today all over the world.
Basketball is now world famous, especially thanks to the NBA which revolutionized this sport. In France, this sport is also very popular, whether to practice it but also to follow it on television. Some support an NBA franchise and follow the matches of their favorite team during the night, others watch European basketball such as the Euroleague or wait for certain competitions in order to watch the French team of Evan Fournier and Rudy Gobert.
