The history of Basketball starts in 1891, when Dr. James Naismith, an instructor at the Springfield Young Men's Christian Association Training School, created the game so that his students wouldn't become bored through the long and frozen winter. Naismith nailed two peach baskets to the balcony inside of the gym, then grabbed the nearest soccer ball he could find, and created the first 9 rules of basketball. And so the sport of basketball was born. Then in less than 50 years later, in 1946 the BAA (basketball association of america) was formed. There was 11 original teams, split into the east and the west. The BAA was later changed into the name we all know today, the NBA. After that, there were more teams that got added and the rest went on.
