Basketball was invented in 1891 by James Naismith. Since then, it has become one of the most popular sports in the world. Even kids love to play basketball using mini basketball inside their home and indoors. There are professional sizes and rules today that have to be observed in a professional basketball game, but that wasn’t how James Naismith intended it to be.
Naismith invented basketball by starting using a soccer ball into a peach basket according to those who have traced the history of this sport. He has a simple idea like shooting the ball into the basket, much like most kids and adults do at home when they try and shoot the ball inside their mini basketball hoops.
Today however, there are different basketball official rules. There are regulation sizes rules for men and boys; Official Women rules for women and girls; Intermediate basketball rules for girls youth; Junior basketball rules for boy’s youth; Junior basketball rules for kids and other more rules for non-pro and professional basketball games.
Considering all the different rules and the history of this game, one wonders if the sizes of the ball and rim even matters. Perhaps the weight of the ball does matter but that wasn’t the idea of the man who invented the game was it? Besides, it is hard to imagine how huge his game would be after a century. Today, basketball is one of the most commercialized sports. Basketball is the way to sell everything from rubber shoes to sports wear.
