Basketball is a team sport that can be played indoors or outdoors.
It’s a fast-paced game that requires players to have strong ball-handling skills, as well as being able to safely pass, dribble and shoot the ball. In the greater part of North America, a lot of people are hooked into basketball.
Basketball’s Major League
The National Basketball Association (NBA) is the major professional league in North America for basketball. In the NBA, there are two different types of basketball goals: a standard basket and a 3-point basket. Standards baskets are worth 2 points and 3-point baskets are worth 3 points.
Basketball’s most Popular Play
The most popular of the basketball games is the five-on-five game, typically played between two teams of five players each. A player on one team throws the ball to a teammate and then rebounds off the board to allow their point guard to take control of the ball and start dribbling down court.
