There used to be no 3-point line. They used to play naked(yes, they got kicked in the balls sometimes) and much more.

Two interesting facts about the history of basketball are a man who went by the name of Dr. James Naismith created the game. He used two ladders, a YMCA gymnasium, and two peach baskets to create a distraction for a rowdy class. Also, once basketball became an actual game the color of the basketball was a shade of brown. Later, it was changed to a bright color. Thus, the orange basketball was born!

Basketball (usually) does not involve penguins. Basketball can not be used as a verb.
