Definitions for "Basketball"
Keywords:  hoop, nowitzki, dirk, sport, contest
A ball game, usually played indoors in an area called the basketball court, in which two opposing teams of five players each contest with each other to toss a large inflated ball (the basketball) into opposite goals (baskets) resembling baskets, each typically a cylindrical mesh suspended from a circular rim which is held ten feet above the court. A goal scored by passing the basketball through the basket may count from one to three points, depending on the situation in which it was thrown.
The inflatable ball used in the game of basketball.
A game that uses a round orange ball and circular nets mounted underneath hoops; compare to volleyball. Typically played outside in nice weather, or in overheated gymnasiums in the winter. Players typically wear tank tops, shorts, and sneakers. For Baby Boomer basketball before 1970, the players invariably wore Chucks, as in the example to the left. My old school buddy Randy demonstrates how the Baby Boomers played basketball; usually, but not always, in high-tops. They also wore real shorts back then, not a male version of bloomers like Michael Jordan wore. Serious market competition, first from adidas and then Puma Clydes, came along in the late 1960's and early 1970's.
