Basketball

Since it was invented by Dr. James Naismith in 1891, basketball has become a very popular limited-contact sports game played on a rectangular court. Most often it is played with five players on each side and its objective is to shoot a ball through a hoop 3,048 m high and 46 cm in diameter that is installed to a backboard at each of the ends of the basketball court.

Each of the teams has a chance to score a so-called “field goal”. It can be done by shooting the ball through the basket that is being defended by the opposition team during play. A field goal may score three points for the shooting team in case the player shoots from behind the three-point line. Two points may be scored in case they shot from in front of the line.

That team that gets the most points at the end of the game wins. At the same time, there may appear the so-called “additional time” or “overtime” after the time is up. It is mandated in case the score is tied at the end of regulation. The ball can be advanced on the court by passing it to a teammate. It can be also done by bouncing it while running (dribbling) or walking. To lift or to drag one's pivot foot without dribbling the ball, to carry it or to hold the ball with both hands then resume dribbling are all the forbidden acts.

Basketball teams usually have their players’ positions. The strongest, as well as the tallest members of a team, are called either a center or a power forward. At the same time, those who are slightly shorter and agiler, are called as “small forward”. The shortest players are called either a point guard or a shooting guard.

Basketball is one of the world's widely viewed and most popular sports. Going into particulars for a reason of explaining the rules of this game in detail may be more convenient by using the pre-made illustrations as the representations of the basketball field as well as the team players.
