== == == == Basketball was a great new idea for a sport and was very easy to start. All you need is a ball, a court, and a hoop. The adoption of basketball was a big money maker for big market cities and even small market cities, so they would welcome the new sporting attraction. Also, people just wanted to play the game, so they officially made it a new sport.

Great game for cities. Large fields take up too much space. Became popular because you can play pick up with 2 guys and one ball.
