The first equipment used in basketball was a ball. This when combined with some sort of net brought about basketball.

When basketball was first found, they used a laundry basket as a goal. then the rim was invented, then someone just had the idea to make a net out of string. By the time u knew it, it was known as a net.

The first net wasn't actually a net. The first basketball hoop was actually a wooden crate with no top or bottom in it and it was nailed high on a post.
