== == The man who started basketball was James Naismith and he started teaching basketball where ever he worked then basketball became popular and colleges started to adopt the sport. Eventually, the fad caught on and basketball was a hit everywhere. From an elementary and middle school game to a high school game to college and finally the NBA, basketball has also made it's appearance globally.
