The rules of basketball can vary slightly depending on the level of play (for example professional rules differ from college rules) or where the game is played (international rules are different from USA professional rules). These rule differences, however, are usually just variations on the basic game of basketball and the majority of the rules discussed below can be applied to most any game of basketball played.
The winner of a basketball game is the team with the most points. You get points by throwing the basketball through the opponent's hoop or basket. In regular play a basket made from within the three point line is worth 2 points and a basket shot from outside the three point line is worth three points. When shooting a free throw, each free throw is worth 1 point.
Rules for the offense
The basketball team on offense is the team with the basketball. When a player has the basketball there are certain rules they must follow:
The player must bounce, or dribble, the ball with one hand while moving both feet. If, at any time, both hands touch the ball or the player stops dribbling, the player must only move one foot. The foot that is stationary is called the pivot foot.
The basketball player can only take one turn at dribbling. In other words, once a player has stopped dribbling they cannot start another dribble. A player who starts dribbling again is called for a double-dribbling violation and looses the basketball to the other team. A player can only start another dribble after another player from either team touches or gains control of the basketball. This is usually after a shot or pass.
The ball must stay in bounds. If the offensive team looses the ball out of bounds the other team gets control of the basketball.
The players hand must be on top of the ball while dribbling. If they touch the bottom of the basketball while dribbling and continue to dribble this is called carrying the ball and the player will lose the ball to the other team.
Once the offensive team crosses half court, they may not go back into the backcourt. This is called a backcourt violation. If the defensive team knocks the ball into the backcourt, then the offensive team can recover the ball legally.
The team on defense is the team without the basketball.
Rules for everyone
Although the foul rule is described above as a defensive rule, it applies exactly the same to all players on the court including offensive players.
Basketball players cannot kick the ball or hit it with their fist.
No player can touch the basketball while it is traveling downward towards the basket or if it is on the rim. This is called goaltending. (touching the ball on the rim is legal in some games).
Every player on the court is subject to the same rules regardless of the position they play. The positions in basketball are just for team basketball strategy and there are no positions in the rules.

Magic Johnson is good, but if you look at the stats Larry Bird is better. They are both 6' 9", but Johnson played point guard so he obviously has more assists but Bird has more points and rebounds.
Larry Bird was a member of the Boston Celtics between 1979-1992.
1979 on the Boston celtics
Michael Jordan is considered the most famous male basketball player. He led his NBA team, the Chicago Bulls in 6 championships. He was nicknamed "His Airness" because of his aerial artistry and finesse in playing the sport.

While it remains unclear as to who was the initial player to breakout the "dunk" it has now evolved as a huge part of the game. The dunk is certainly a crowd favorite with Slam Dunk Showdown's and contests and is constantly being remodeled and becoming more creative over the years. According to the related Sports Illustrated link, "Not even the staff at the Basketball Hall of Fame is sure who made the first dunk in organized play. What is known is that the shot has been around nearly as long as the game itself (that means since the 1890's) and that in the 1940's Oklahoma A&M's 6'10" center Bob Kurland became the first college player to regularly use the dunk." For more information, see the related link.
All the material they use are very valuable, like diamonds, designs, and gold! Since you can only get it from a year long effort and only 1 team wins it, no one will sell it because it means a lot to them. But if you were to buy a ring like nba's it could be worth $15,000-$30,000. I was able to see a championship ring and actually hold it but it was a football one. this teacher showed me 2 rings. one was worth 30000 and more than another ring.
The most famous basketball players would definitely be Lebron James, Magic Johnson, Michael Jordan, and Kobe Bryant. There are many foreign popular basketball players, too, and players that are popular because they are foreign, including Yao Ming, Dirk Nowitzki, Pau Gasol, Marc Gasol, Ricky Rubio, Peja Stojakovic, and Vlade Divac.
Kobe Bryant won 10 National titles with the Lakers, won 3 dunk contests, Cinderella story basketball career: cut from high school team and went on to play only a freshman year at the Saint Mary's college, then was drafted into the NBA. Julius Erving-played for New York and then the 76ers. Incredible dunker revolutionized the game of basketball as we know it. Larry Bird-played for the Boston Celtics, The white boy could only shoot 3's, he could knock down a jumper! Erving (Magic) Johnson-played for the LA Lakers in a short career, revolutionized the game's positions, he showed that a 5'8 player could still shine in the point guard position. Tracy McGrady who I think is the Most cock-eyed player in the NBA to watch today, explosive dunker and great shooter.
