Backboards have been invented to prevent spectators from leaning over balconies where baskets were attached and interfering with shots. Also, a laceless basketball became official in 1950. The basketballs are not laced or sewn any more. they dont use peach baskets any more to play the game with, like they did when it was invented. the backboard and basketballs are laced or sewn anymore
