HISTORY AND ORIGINJames Naismith was the Canadian physicaleducation instructor who inventedbasketball in 1891. James Naismith wasborn in Almont, Ontario and educated atMcGill University and Presbyterian Collegein Montreal.In contrast to other sports, basketball hasa clear origin. It is not the evolutionfrom an ancient game or another sport andthe inventor is well known: Dr. JamesNaismith. In 1891, while working as aphysical education teacher at the YMCAInternational Training School (today,Springfield College) in the United States,Naismith was faced with the problem offinding in 14 days an indoor game toprovide "athletic distraction" for thestudents at the School for ChristianWorkers (Naismith was also a Presbyterianminister).After discardingthe idea ofadapting outdoorgames like soccerand lacrosse,
Naismith recalled the concept of a game ofhis school days known as duck-on-a-rockthat involved accuracy attempting to knocka "duck" off the top of a large rock bytossing another rock at it.Of course it was not exactly as we know ittoday. The first game was played with asoccer ball and two peach baskets nailed10-feet high used as goals, on a court justhalf the size of a present-day court. Thebaskets retained their bottoms so ballsscored into the basket had to be poked outwith a long dowel each time and dribbling(bouncing of the ball up and down whilemoving) was not part of the original game.The sport was an instant success and thanksto the initial impulse received by the YMCAmovement, basketballs popularity quicklygrew nationwide and was introduced in manynations. He had the honor to witnessbasketball become an Olympic sport atthe 1936 Games held in Berlin.

COMMON SPORTS INJURIESBasketball is one of the most popularsports in the United States and throughoutthe world. Basketball injuries can beseparated into two general categories:overuse injuries and traumatic injuries.Overuse injuriesInjuries caused by stressing anarea over and over until it isdamaged and begins to hurt aredescribed as overuse injuries.One such injury is patellar
tendinitis, or "jumpers knee," which ischaracterized by pain in the tendon justbelow the kneecap.Achilles tendinitis is another commonoveruse injury in basketball players. Thisinjury of the tendon connecting the musclesin the back of the calf to the heel bonecauses pain in the back of the leg justabove the heel.Traumatic injuriesTraumatic injuries are those caused by asudden forceful injury. Some of the morecommon traumatic injuries in basketball arejammed fingers. The severity of a jammedfinger can range from a minor injury of theligaments, which connect bones, to a brokenfinger. Splinting may be needed to allowthe injured finger to heal.Another type of traumatic injury is a muscle pull or tear. Ankle sprains The most common basketball injury is the ankle sprain. This injury often occurs when a player lands on another players foot or the ankle rolls too far outward. When this happens, the ligaments connecting bones
and supporting the ankle are stretched andtornKnee injuriesKnee injuries are some of the most seriousbasketball injuries. One type of kneeinjury is a sprain. A knee sprain is asmall tear in the ligaments or jointcapsule that is not severe enough to causeyour knee to give way. To help the tear heal, you must protect your knee for a short time by immobilizing it. If you twist your knee, you can tear a meniscus, which is tissue that acts as a cushion between the bones of the upper and lower leg at the knee.
