Basketball is fun and exciting to play because theres always action that takes place out on the baaketball court.There are times it can be challenging and rough.There must be 5 players on the court at all times.There are four 8 minute quarters. That is a subjective question. I like basketball because my dad plays it (not pro) and he teaches me. Basketball is liked by many people because you can learn how to cooperate with your teammates adn make more firends. There is a lot of action. Many people say that basketball can make you grow taller, becase of the jumping and you can also, get strong musles by throwign the ball. Easy sport to play and practice alone. Game is never over, amazing comebacks. Players wear no special gear which is great for fans. Team players or individuals are can be successful. Last few minutes of close game very exciting and unduplicated in other sports. Amazing number of different theorys and stratageys on how to win. International following. great variety of players physical makeup; 5' 6' 7' 300lbs 150lbs ect possible for terrible team to defeat great team on any given night
