Dr. James Naismith is known world-wide as the inventor of basketball. He was born in 1861 in Ramsay township, near Almonte, Ontario, Canada. The concept of basketball was born from Naismith's school days in the area where he played a simple child's game known as duck-on-a-rock outside his one-room schoolhouse. The game involved attempting to knock a "duck" off the top of a large rock by tossing another rock at it. Naismith went on to attend McGill University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.

When Dr. Naismith invented basketball he didn't have a 'basketball' to use. So, he looked around his gymnasium and decided that a soccer ball was the right size and he used that.

That is the correct spelling of "basketball" (the game or the ball used in it).
Basketball, invented by James Nasmith in december 1891. Many things have changed about this sport, hear are some ways. First of all their used to be only 13 ruels and you could not move with the ball, now their are more than 13 rules and you can move with the ball as long as you are dribeling it. Secondly, their is no longer a socer ball used it is now a basketball that is used. Finally my last point on how basketball has changed is by the basket, it is no longer a peach basket it is now a rim baskbord and a net, also the three point line was invented.
Basketball games are started with the opening tip, which is a jump ball. In some competitions, a jump ball is also used to settle held balls (jointly held) and penalty possessions. In others, the alternating possession rule is used.
