Basketball is an indoor team game in which two teams, usually of five players each, against each other on a circular court, fight for the lead on the perimeter of the court and with the goal of shooting a basketball toward the basket of the opponent. Although the BASKETBALL sport has gained popularity all over the world, it is truly played in the United States of America, Canada, Mexico, Spain, Italy, France and Germany. The origin of BASKETBALL can be traced back to France in the nineteenth century where it was first known as “Trouble Ball”. When the sport started, only the French had access to BASKETBALL and the rest of the world was not yet introduced to this well-known game. However, today BASKETBALL has caught the attention of many sports lovers worldwide and has become the most popular sport played by people in the world today.
BASKETBALL is a team sport where two teams, usually of five players each compete for the lead on the perimeter of the court. Each player has a basketball that is attached to a hand with a string or a hook. The object of the game is to shoot the basketball through the hoop and make the most number of points possible. Each player earns points when they make a basket. The winner is the team with the most points after the overtime or the decisive game point.
BASKETBALL is divided into two different playing strategies, offensive and defensive. offensive strategy involves the ball handler who passes the basketball to his teammates who attempt to shoot the ball through the hoop. The defensive strategy requires the player to block the other team’s basketball and try to keep the ball out of their basket. This can be done by using physical and mental tactics.
BASKETball courts are usually played on an asphalt playing surface. This type of playing surface allows the players to have a fair playing surface. The courts are usually about three quarters of an inch thick and are commonly used for baseball and softball games. In addition to the playing surface, there is usually a foul line on the basketball court which marks the spot on the court where the ball is to be touched before it goes in. Another type of foul is the free throw line on the basketball court, where the players touch the ball using their hands only.
BASKETball usually consists of two teams. Each team consists of fifteen players. The basketball is usually heated up inside a microwaveable aluminum bowl. Before the players start playing, the players stand or sit on a bench inside the microwaveable bowl and then start warming up. The warm-up usually involves jumping and throwing the ball into the basket. Once the players are warmed up, they stand or sit on the basketball court and start playing.
The game is played for two hours at a time. Usually there is a fifteen minute halftime. The game is played with two teams per team. There is no restriction as to how many teams play in a single game. Usually, two teams play against each other in a semi-final or final at a BASKETball court.
