The meaning of sport
 Sport is all forms of usually competitive physical
activity which, through casual or organised
participation, aim to use, maintain or improve
physical ability and skills while
providing entertainment to participants, and in
some cases, spectators.Hundreds of sports exist,
from those requiring only two participants,
through to those with hundreds of simultaneous
participants, either in teams or competing as
individuals.
What is basketball?
 Basketball is a sport played by two
teams of five players on a
rectangular court. The objective is to
shoot a ball through a hoop 18 inches
in diameter and 10 feet high mounted
to a backboard at each end.
Basketball is one of the world's most
popular and widely viewed sports.
Rules and regulations
 Measurements and time limits discussed in
this section often vary among
tournaments and organizations;
international and NBA rules are used in
this section.
 The object of the game is to outscore
one's opponents by throwing the ball
through the opponents' basket from above
while preventing the opponents from
doing so on their own. An attempt to
score in this way is called a shot.
Equipment
 The only essential equipment in a
basketball game is the ball and the
court: a flat, rectangular surface with
baskets at opposite ends. Competitive
levels require the use of more
equipment such as clocks, score
sheets, scoreboard(s), alternating
possession arrows, and whistle-
operated stop-clock systems.
Shooting
 Shooting is the act of attempting to score points
by throwing the ball through the basket,
methods varying with players and situations.
 Typically, a player faces the basket with both
feet facing the basket. A player will rest the ball
on the fingertips of the dominant hand slightly
above the head, with the other hand supporting
the side of the ball. The ball is usually shot by
jumping and extending the shooting arm. The
shooting arm, fully extended with the wrist fully
bent, is held stationary for a moment following
the release of the ball, known as a follow-
through
Variations
 Variations of basketball are activities based
on the game of basketball, using common
basketball skills and equipment. Some variations
are only superficial rules changes, while others
are distinct games with varying degrees of
basketball influences. Other variations include
children's games, contests or activities meant to
help players reinforce skills.
 There are principal basketball sports with
variations on basketball including Wheelchair
basketball,Water basketball, Beach
basketball, Slamball,Streetball and Unicycle bask
etball.

stats by hand, it was popularized during the
1990s after the advent of the Internet. Those
who play this game are sometimes referred to
as General Managers, who draft
actual NBA players and compute their basketball
statistics. The game was popularized
by ESPN Fantasy Sports,NBA.com,
and Yahoo! Fantasy Sports. Other sports
websites provided the same format keeping the
game interesting with participants actually
owning specific players.
