Basketball

Basketball was invented by Dr.James Naismith in Canada Springfield, Massachusetts in 1891. Dr.James created an indoor sports activity while conducting a physical education(history of basketball in Canada). Dr.James was inspired by a game called duck on a rock that he played when he was younger.
