BASKETBALL

Hi I’m Megan and this is my blog about Basketball. Basketball is my favourite sport and I play for Whiz Kidz, as well as the school team. Here’s some information about Basketball…

A BIT ABOUT THE SPORT

Basketball is one of the most popular sports ever and was invented by Dr. James Naismith, coach of the Kansas Jayhawks. The sport is most commonly played in America and mostly played by boys (though not in all cases).  NBA- the National Basketball Association- is the highest level of the game.

HOW WAS IT INVENTED?

The sport was invented by Canadian, James Naismith, when he seeked a game to keep his gym class active on a rainy day. After much trial and error, he wrote the basic rules and nailed a basket onto an elevated track. The basket had a sealed bottom, so the ball had to removed manually after each point was scored.

FUN FACTS

The first hoops were peach baskets and the backboards were made of wire.

In 1936, Germany, the game was made an official Olympic Sport.

  The Chicago Bulls have won all six NBA finals they have entered.

  Michael Jordan, has scored the most points-5978-in the playoffs than any other player.
