Dr. James Naismith created the game of basketball … wanted a non-violent game thatcould be played inside. His simple rules created the concept of the game:****A goal shall be made when the ball is thrown or batted from the grounds into the basket (peach basket) andstays there, providing those defending the goal do not touch or disturb the goal.FIRST GAME: Played in Toronto, Canada on Nov. 1, 1946.Toronto Huskies hosted the New York Knickerbockers at Maple Leaf Gardens … 7,090 people attendedThe Knicks won, 68-66, BUT That game was from a different era. Low-scoring, players did not double-pumpor slam-dunk, there was NOT a 24-second clock; teams had unlimited time to shoot. Coaches hated whenplayers took a jump shot and let their feet leave the floor.TODAY: the NBA has 2 Conferences, split up into 3 Divisions:
