What is the history about basketball?
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.
