Basketball is a popular sport. There are five players on each team and each team tries to get the basketball in each other's nets. You play this game with a basketball which i…s a sphere colored orange with black stripes. Basketball is most common in the USA. There are professional teams, college teams, high school, middle and even some elementary school teams. The main thing is to get the ball into the opposing team's hoop by dribbling and shooting with your hands. There a few different ways you can score. The first is to make a basket within the large that extends past the free throw line. Any shot in this range is worth 2 points. Any shot made outside of the large arc is worth 3 points. If you are fouled while shooting, you may go to the free throw line to earn back your points. Each free throw is worth one point. There are many rules to basketball, and some rules are added in each upcoming year. To view more about these rules and the game of basketball, view the links below. (MORE)

In Geometry

angels of the shots A standard basketball court measures 94 feet in length, and is 50 feet wide. The center circle is 12 feet in diameter, and the smaller circle inside it has… a diameter of 4 feet. The division line is 50 feet long, and splits the court in half. This creates two half-courts, each measuring 50 feet wide by 47 feet long. The free-throw lane is 12 feet wide by 19 feet long. The 3-point arc is 19 feet 9 inches from the center of the rim. The backboard is four feet from the baseline. The rim is 18 inches in diameter, and is suspended exactly 10 feet above the floor. The backboard is 6 feet wide by 4 feet high. The white box above the rim of a backboard is 18 inches high and 2 feet wide. The official basketball of both men's National Basketball Association and National Collegiate Atheltic Associtation leagues has a diameter of apporimately 9 inches, and a total circumference close to 30 inches. (http://www.go.to/geobball) Nov. 18, 2009 Basketball has a bunch of things to do with geometry. Such as, when shooting the basketball the more arc that the person puts on the ball, if it is the right distance, the better chance the ball will go in. A basketball that is dropping toward the basket at a 70 to 90 degree angle from above simply has a larger diameter target to drop through than a ball approaching the hoop from a 30 to 50 degree inclination. Also, the more spin that the person puts on the ball, the more forgiving it is. If the person shooting it shoots it too far, then the backspin on the ball will help it roll in the goal, or give a teammate a better chance of getting the rebound. When the ball approaches the rim from a 30 degree angle of inclination, this is called a "flat shot" or a "rope shot". It is a very low-percentage shot. It is possible for a shot to go in from this angle, but it must hit the basket perfectly. Mostly younger players shoot flat shots. It takes less power to get the ball to the hoop, and therefore the player can shoot from further away, but will dramatically decreases their shooting percentage. The ball coming at a 30 degree angle only gives the ball 9 inches of the available 18 inches for the ball to go through the hoop. With a flat shot you are not using the available rim and your shot must be perfect. From a 50 degree angle, the shot has 16 inches of available rim space for the ball to go into the basket. From this angle you can be off as much 3 inches in either direction and still have the ball go into the basket. At a 70 degree angle, there is a little more than 17 inches of rim space for the basketball to go through the hoop. Shooting percentages will dramatically improve for shots made at this angle compared to shots made at lower angles. (MORE)

In order to dunk a basketball, you have to first be able to jump high enough to be able to get your hand above the rim of the basket. Dunking, then, is forcing the ball down t…hrough the basket from above as opposed to shooting a basket which involves arcing the ball up and into the basket from below. (MORE)

If you are doing basketball like for the city or your school then you will need shorts, basketball shoes, and a basketball (If they don't have enough, usually they do thou…gh). If you are doing it with friends or family or by yourself, you don't have to have shorts but it's easier to run in and you don't need basketball shoes especially if you are outside because if you use your shoes outside, they won't be able to do as well inside. Finally, obviously if you don't have a basketball, you need one. *Also, if you're thinking about joining a team be prepared for fitness training and some small fees for the coach, equipment, etc. (MORE)
