Basketball is a well-known ball game in which two teams try to score points by basket throwing. Mainly through the USA, basketball became one of the world’s most famous ball games. In 1891, the physician and educator James Naismith invented this sport in Springfield to teach his students the possibility of physical exercise without exposing them to a major risk of injury.
Basketball is still played in the universities of the USA and many famous professional players found their beginnings at the colleges.
Even the female sex is enthusiastic about basketball and formed professional teams. It is usually played in a hall and thrown onto a basket attached to a board exactly 3.05 meters high. Over the years, the World Basketball Federation (FIBA) and several basketball leagues emerged. One of the best known today is the American NBA. Of course there are many different basketball federations worldwide. Of course, you can bet on any kind of basketball game around the world, at the sportsbook Betsson.
The rules are simple: Two teams of 5 players each and 7 substitute players try to score as many basket hits as possible. It is played with a ball that weighs about 650 grams and is made of leather or synthetic. A successful hit from the game counts 3 points. A basket hit from a distance is awarded 2 points. In case of a hit after the free play the team gets 1 point. It wins the team, which has reached the highest score in the end. If the game draws, a 5-minute extension is played, repeated until there is a winner.
The better known this sport became, the more professional it became. The sports clubs in the US and Europe are now paying enormous sums for players and coaches. Both the transfer fee, as well as the annual income, is in no way inferior to the German football player. In Germany, however, the basketball players can only dream of these possibilities. Although players have made it to us to rise to the top leagues of the United States and to gain world fame.
