Rules of the game of basketball. Basketball is a team sport. Two teams of five players each try to score by shooting a ball through a hoop elevated 10 feet above the ground. The game is played on a rectangular floor called the court, and there is a hoop at each end. The court is divided into two main sections by the mid-court line. If the offensive team puts the ball into play behind the mid-court line, it has ten seconds to get the ball over the mid-court line. If it doesn 't, then the defense gets the ball. Once the offensive team gets the ball over the mid-court line, it can no longer have possession of the ball in the area in back of the
We can all agree that basketball is almost becoming popular around the world. So many people play this sport but do people know how basketball started and how it evolute throughout the years since basketball was borned? So like every other sports and creations, there has to be a inventor and in basketball there was a man by the name of Dr. James Naismith. “Created in 1891 in a Springfield, Massachusetts YMCA gymnasium has grown into a game played worldwide by more than 300 million people”(historybits.com). So this game has been out for a very long period of time with many changing of the rules in basketball throughout the history. When it was first played in the late 1800s, there were different rules and even different looking basketball. As for the rules, originally there would be 10 people on the court but it first started with 18 people on the court which after couple of years it changed to only 10 people. Substitution was also different and the rule for this was at first no one can enter until the next game. “The rule was changed in 1920 to allow a player to re-enter the game one time. In 1934, the rule was expanded to allow players to re-enter the game twice, and, in 1945 the rule was finally changed to permit players to return to the game an unlimited number of times”(hooptactics.com). The first basketball looked very alike a football but round. The backboards were made out of straight wood and the baskets were made out of peach baskets or square boxes. There was only
Because it was so hard to get the ball through the hoops, there were other objects as well. Players could hit one of the six markers along the sides of the court. Or, they would be given points for other skillful plays. Fouls were also given if the players couldn't get the ball across the center line, or if they touched the ball with the wrong part of the body, such as the hand or calf
In the BAA teams had unlimited time to shoot the basketball, in today’s NBA teams only have 24 seconds to shoot the basketball. Teams who player’s committed consecutive fouls would’ve gave a point to the opposing team, now when players commit fouls either the other team gets the ball, two free throws, or a player that has committed 6 fouls will get ejected from the game. A free throw is when a player that has been fouled takes either 1, 2, or 3 shots without any defenders trying to block him/her. Many players and coaches didn’t believe in jumping they thought “nothing good would come when player’s feet left the ground.” Basketball games were longer two each quarter was 12 minutes, now every quarter is 10 minutes not including timeouts or foul calls.

In December of 1891, James Naismith, a physical education instructor, introduced his gymnastics class at the YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts his uncharted invention composed of nailed peach baskets at both ends of the gym and a soccer ball (NBA Hoops Online). As Naismith explains, the background behind it was: “It was developed to meet a need. Those boys simply would not play ‘Drop the Handkerchief.” Indeed, due to his act, it met one ends need not by accident but as an aspiration. Furthermore, Naismith had generated a list of 13 rules which would administer this unique game (Basketball For Dummies). Because the approach of the game was foreign to his students, they played for 30 minutes with the final score of 1 to 0 (NBA
Thesis: This paper argues that basketball is the most difficult sport, for a number of reasons that will be pointed out through the literature on the game, the coaches, and the players.
Every night in the small town of Greenville, Mississippi, people from all across town come to a local gym called 24/7 Fitness Center to play pickup basketball. The age of these people can vary from young teens to around 60 years old. The set up of these basketball games are different from the regular rules of organized basketball. For instance, there are no referees to police any violation of rules by calling “fouls”. Therefore, the players themselves must call a “foul” if they believe that their opponent has violated a rule of the game. Also, referees are responsible for deciding on an “out of bounds” violation. In this kind of violation, the team that touched the ball before the ball goes out of the boundary on which the players play basketball
Dr. Naismith came up with thirteen rules. While four out of the thirteen rules that he came up with, are no longer followed in today 's version of basketball, the nine that are left were slightly modified and are still in use today. The original thirteen rules are as follows:
The player should be bent over when he dribbles. He must keep his body between the ball and the opposing player. The ball must always be kept near the floor and behind the player. He will also keep the ball near his body. The player must keep his other arm in front and straight to guard against the other player.He can not grab the other player. Do not ever stop your dribble until you can shoot or
Team Handball is a court game playing at an intense pace. Played on the size of a basketball court, the almost hand sized ball can get from one goal to the other in no time at all. The goals are the same size as indoor soccer and there is a semicircle around the goal with the goalkeeper being the only one allowed in this area. There are two teams with 7 players a side including the goalkeeper. Team handball is quite similar to basketball with the main difference being the goals. The ball is passed through the hands of the team, past the defence towards the opponents goal. A goal is scored when the whole ball passes the line at the goal. A fitness test was
Basketball originated in Springfield, Massachusetts, on November 1981 and was invented by Dr. James Naismith. There were originally 13 rules and the first game was played on December 21st, 1981. It spread quickly with students and people talking about it everywhere. The first game of basketball was played when Dr Naismith was thinking of an activity to keep his students active during the winter on a rainy day. He wanted a physically active indoor game so his students were occupied and maintained good levels of fitness during the long winters. After lots of consideration, he wrote the basic rules and nailed peach baskets three meters high above the ground on two opposite sides. The first official game was played in the YMCA gymnasium in Albany, New York, on January 20, 1892, with nine players. The game ended at 1–0 with the court at that time being half the size of a full size NBA court.
The basketball game played by two teams consisting of five players. In the basketball game, the basketball player tries to outscore their opponent by passing, handling or dribbling the basketball into position for shooting the ball into their offensive basket. When either of the team player violated or foul, the fouled player attempts a free-throw of the ball changes (Mood, Masker & Rink, 1991). The free drop is important later in the game because of the free throws comprise a significantly larger portion of total points made during the final 5 minutes than the first 35 minutes of the game for both gaining and losing teams (Kozar, 1994). The fouled player required to shoot from the free throw line. The free throw line is 15 feet from the basket and has ample time to attempt the shot, so that is the easiest shots in basketball. A successful free throw needed a good concentration, relaxation, but the most important is a good mechanic in the shot. Also, the player does more practice can increase the success percentage in a free throw.
At the park, 5 pm, the grass was green, and the air was chilly. The sounds of basketballs bounced a thousand times like a heartbeat. That’s the chill I have: sweat dripping down my forehead. The chills on my spine on how I would get ready to shoot the basketball. The thing my ancestors and father passes down to my brother and I was the love of basketball and the game. It all started that morning, everyone just bouncing the ball like animals, and how they would play each other in a game of basketball. They would also, in the end, shake the other person’s hand out of respect, walk away, and later find another person to play the game with. The love of basketball all started with my grandfather and my dad.
