Basketball is more similar to its early days when the basketball net did not even have a net, just a peach basket. Similarly, basketball inventor James Naismith was also very excited about sports, but not so much about physics. The obvious problem with the improvised basketball net was that there was no hole at the bottom of the basketball. I'm sure we've all seen the deal where one player needs to climb the ladder to get the basketball after each point. Of course, Mr. Naismith's brilliant solution is to cut a hole at the bottom of the basket. It seems like an obvious solution for those who have changed in the modern basketball game, but wait for the penalty line not yet to come. The hole they cut was not big enough for basketball to fall off. However, it was enough for the person standing on the floor to poke a broom handle and put the basket ball back over the top. It's strange that the obvious is not always so obvious to those who were at that time. Despite this somewhat comic start, basketball has really evolved into one of the premier sporting events in the world. I bet James is happy to accept his little game today. I hope so.
Basketball proved to be rather funny funny on the road to success. One of the early interesting rules today would have pretty ridiculous consequences. In today's basketball game, when a ball leaves the boundaries, the last player touching the basketball ball has decided to be responsible for the ball in the game and therefore his team loses possession of the ball. Things were a bit different from the original basket rules. In the original basketball game, the first player who found a ball leaving a limit was in possession of the ball for his team. I guess it makes sense when playing the game for the first time in a gym with a gym teacher who does not want to get the balls back. Why not let players get their basketball back. If! You can imagine the close combat that would be between today's professional games if that was the rule. I just see that Kobe Bryant climbed up over Jack Nicholson, pouring the drink and knocking all his eyebrows and grabbing the ball with his fiercely desperate attempt. Comic. . . Yes. Funny. . . Yes. Entertaining. . . Yes. Probably the NBA will accept it. . . not likely. We can always dream.
Entertainment Like Sports
Basketball is certainly one of the most successful forms of sports entertainment. From the pre-play theater drama (Ala the Micheal Jordan era Chicago Bulls) to the bad guys who seem to be spread in all sports, but especially in basketball. Despite the fact that most of the basketball games have been decided in the last few minutes of the game, it is truly an exciting game to play. Especially if you have the chance to watch the live play of basketball. It is highly recommended. These guys make the TV guys look like they're moving slowly.
