The game of basketball is completely different. First of all, dribbling was introduced into the game. Many different rules have entered as well, including the three second violation, palming the ball, and traveling. The three point shot was introduced and changed the game dramatically. The 24 second shot clock was introduced, forcing players to shoot after a certain amount of time. Dunking is another big type of shot introduced. Back in the day, dunking was considered as "taboo" and no one dunked.

There are different signals in basketball but if we talk about the first rule, James Naismith was the first person ever to published the basketball rules in 1891. The early rules and signals were quite different from the current signals. But more or less it is evolved from James Naismith's published rules.
