BASKETBALL is an abbreviation for Basic Basketball Equipment. It is an organized game where two teams, usually of five players each compete against each other on a circular court, the aim being to shoot a ball through the hoop of their opponent whilst preventing the other team from shooting through the hoop of their own. In basketball, unlike most sports where players wear specific uniforms to match the team, BASKETBALL involves players wearing loose clothes.
BASKETBALL involves two separate but connected elements. The BASKETBALL itself is usually made up of two long poles with short handles attached at the ends. Each player has a basketball in their hands and uses a pole to shoot the ball towards the hoops of their opponents, aiming to make the ball roll between the two long poles. Players can use either their bodies or their legs when attempting to shoot a ball. BASKETBALL has evolved over time to include all types of surfaces including concrete, asphalt and even grass.
Asphalt BASKETball is played on what are known as green asphalt tiles. Green asphalt tiles provide a rough playing surface. This means that players must learn to control their bladders in order to avoid fouls or to shoot the ball into the hoop. Bladders are inflated by pumping air into the bladder using a hand pump.
Concrete BASKETball is played on what are called concrete basketball courts. These courts are designed to replicate the feel of a basketball court outdoors. Each player must have their own set of basketballs that they can use to shoot the ball into the hoop. Unlike the green asphalt BASKETball courts, each player is required to wear special gear including, foul-proof T-shirts, long pants and shoes.
The last type of BASKETball court is known as the acrylic basketball court. Acrylic basketballs are manufactured from acrylic plastic which is similar to the material made from plastic toys. These basketballs do not retain any odors. In addition, they are very durable and can stand up to constant use. They also do not require a bladder, so players do not have to worry about trying to inflate a bladder before using their basketball.
Basketball is an extremely popular sport both as a leisure activity for adults and as a sport for children. Many people enjoy the competitive aspect of BASKETball. This is because players are allowed to hone their athletic abilities while having a great time doing so. They improve their game through practice makes perfect. The skill sets learned by playing basketball also help make a player more confident. It also helps them develop an ability to be accountable for themselves.
