In the late 1800s, a Canadian American physical education instructor named James Naismith invented basketball. His idea was to combine a wooden basket and a ball to make for a less injury prone sport than American football. The spread of Basketball was largely credited to states’ military forces and the breakout of World War I in 1914. Later, the sport quickly became established in colleges around North America. The National Basketball Association (NBA) was formed in 1946 as the game started as a professional sport.

During 1979, when videogames were beginning to grow at a rapid pace, two classic arcade basketball games were released. The first was simply titled “Basketball” and it was the first arcade cabinet game to use a trackball for player movement. It featured a one player mode and a two players mode. It also pioneered the tilted screen which became common place in arcades. The second

The early years

In the early years the number of players on a team varied according to the number in the class and the size of the playing area. In 1894 teams began to play with five on a side when the playing area was less than 1,800 square feet (167.2 square metres); the number rose to seven when the gymnasium measured from 1,800 to 3,600 square feet (334.5 square metres) and up to nine when the playing area exceeded that. In 1895 the number was occasionally set at five by mutual consent; the rules stipulated five players two years later, and this number has remained ever since.

Since Naismith and five of his original players were Canadians, it is not surprising that Canada was the

Team sport

Basketball is a team sport in which two teams, most commonly of five players each, opposing one another on a rectangular court, compete with the primary objective of shooting a basketball (approximately 9.4 inches (24 cm) in diameter) through the defender’s hoop (a basket 18 inches (46 cm) in diameter mounted 10 feet (3.048 m) high to a backboard at each end of the court) while preventing the opposing team from shooting through their own hoop. A field goal is worth two points, unless made from behind the three-point line, when it is worth three. After a foul, timed play stops and the player fouled or designated to shoot a technical foul is given one or more one-point free throws. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins, but if regulation play expires with the score tied, an additional period of play (overtime)

He’s the only man to play in three FIFA World Cup™ Finals, he lifted the hallowed Trophy in Yokohama, he’s Brazil’s most-capped player, and on his 50th birthday, Cafu sat down for a chat with FIFA.com.

“He was so unpredictable, he could do things you couldn’t even imagine. He was almost unmarkable,” said ‘The Express Train’ of the toughest opponent he ever had to mark.

In this interview, Cafu discusses what would have happened had he remained a midfielder, lifting the FIFA World Cup™ Trophy, the brilliance of Ronaldo and Ronaldinho, Zinedine Zidane, the Ro-Ro attack, the prospects of Neymar and Brazil, how good the often-compared-to-him Trent Alexander-Arnold can become, and his coaching aspirations.

Ron Settles – Wikipedia

Ron Settles (June 12, 1959 – June 2, 1981) was a California State University, Long Beach and Banning High School[1]football player who was arrested by the Signal Hill Police Department in 1981, and who may have been murdered while in police custody.[2]

The morning after his arrest, Settles was found severely beaten. Police officers claimed that they found Settles hanging in his jail cell from a noose created from a mattress cover, from which they cut him down; however, Police elected not to take photographic evidence of the hanging, and instead only took photographs of Settles on the floor, and officers refused to testify—pleading the fifth, in what continues to appear to some to have been a conspiratorial ‘smokescreen’ or cover-up for police brutality.[3] In 1981, a jury in a Los Angeles coroner’s inquest ruled that Settles had died ‘at the hands of another, other than
