Watch Basketball

Basketball is played on a relatively small court and with no contact allowed between the players, the action is fast paced and the matches high scoring.

That, when coupled with the great skill and athletic ability of the top players, makes for an exciting sport that is a great watch and no matter if you are a big fan of the sport or new to it, watching top Basketball matches is a great occasion and the great news for all sport fans is that you can watch live Basketball from accords the globe live online via our Basketball live streaming partners.

Almost every fan knows that basics of Basketball; it is a team sport played between 5 players on 2 opposing sides with aim of getting a Basketball through a hoop. If you score from near the net, it is worth 2 points and if you score form outside the 3 point line, it is worth 3 points.

If you are fouled, you get to take a free through worth 1 point and it is the team who score the most points at the end of 4 quarters of play.

Whilst that sounds simple, there are a lot of intracity of the sport that makes it fascinating to watch for those well versed in what to look out for but of course the relatively simple nature of the sport makes it easy to pick up for those new to it and easy to enjoy for those dipping in and out of watching.

The sport of Basketball is one based on action as defence often goes out of the window as each team try’s to out score the other and with only 30 seconds to try and score the action is fast and relentless.

With that in mind it is no surprise that the sport has so many fans and thanks to the relatively simple nature of the sport- i.e. get the ball through the hoops and get points – it is a sport that is quickly growing and quickly moving into markets that have often overlooked what has been for so long thought of as a North American sport.

The sport has now not only found a place for itself throughout Europe but it is thriving in many areas and whilst in Britain it is still a sport that is finding it’s place it does have a dedicated following that go to local British Basketball matches and who follow the league major competition, the NBA (National Basketball Association).

History

The history of Basketball is a long and fascinating one that can be dated al of the way back to 1891, when Canadian James Naismith, who was a professor of physical education developed the sport as a way to keep his gym class active on rainy days in New England where he worked.

After trying a number of other sports and activities but deeming them to be too vigorous or rough, he came up with what is in essence, simple idea of a game where you pass a ball before putting into a basket mounted on a wall.

It is incredible to think that originally, the baskets used in the spot were peach basket complete with their bottoms intact so that every time a team score, somebody had to climb some ladders to retrieve the ball.

In those early days, the ball itself was simply a football (soccer ball) but that proved to be another problem as the laces of early football caused uneven bounces but thankfully a lace free new style basketball was soon invented and the bottom of baskets were taken out as the game started to develop and become much closer to the sport that is loved around the world by millions of fans to this very day.

One of the first big changes to the way the sport as played was the change to allow dribbling as originally only passing the ball was allowed, similarly to Netball, although ‘bounce passes’ were alive.

The peach baskets used in the early days lasted until 1906 when metal hoops and backboards were used but these were originally added to the mezzanine level of sports centres but that led to supporters interfering with shots.

The name ‘Basketball’ is believed to have been created by Frank Mahan, an early player of the sport, who in 1892 asked Naismith what he was to call the new game he invented but after replying that he hadn’t thought of a name yet, Mahon replied with ‘Naismith Ball’, which was quickly rebuffed, before stating ‘why not call it Basketball.

The first official game of Basketball took place at the YMCA gymnasium in the city of Albany in New York state in January 1892 with 9 players participating. The game ended 1 nil, as a point was awarded every time somebody got the ball in the basket, which h only happened on 1 occasion.

From there the sport quickly grew in North America throughout YMCA’s and then through colleges before the professionalism of the sport turned into one of the biggest sports in North America.

By the 1930’s the sport had started to go international and in 1932 FIBA was first established at the international Basketball Federation by the 8 founding nations of Argentina, Czechoslovakia, Greece, Latvia, Portugal, Romania and Switzerland.

That helped the sport move into world prominence, as it featured at the 1936 Summer Olympics in Berlin. The United States won that first gold medal and have been the dominant force ever since although the sports leading competition, the NBA, is now featuring more and more players from across the globe and the gap is certainly closing.

In 1950, the first ever world championship was held in Argentina and soon after the sports first ever world championship for women was held in a side of the sport that is now amongst the fastest growing.
