Transcript of NBA BASKETBALL

Q1 Digital Literacy
History of basketball
In 1891, James Naismith asked the janitor to hang a peach basket from the gym balcony for an experimental indoor ball game.
Some of the rules were from a game the James played when he was younger. That game was called Duck on a Rock.
The first player Walt Dropo, was drafted in 1947 by the Providence Steamrollers. The first game consisted of 18 players, nine to a team.
LeBron James was born on December 30, 1984. He is 6'8" and weighs 250 lbs. He started at small forward and then power forward. He won two NBA finals MVP awards, two Olympic gold medals, NBA scoring title, NBA rookie of the year, and he was selected to ten NBA all star teams. Also he is the Cavaliers all time leading scorer.
Kevin Durant was born on September 29,1988. He attended University Of Texas. Now he plays as a small and power foward. Kevin has won NBA most Valuable Player, four NBA scoring titles, rookie of the year and an Olympic Gold medal.

6. No substitution shall be allowed.
7. A foul is striking at the ball with the fist, violation of rules three and four and such described in rule five.
If either side makes three consecutive fouls, it shall count a goal for the opponents (consecutive means
without the opponents in the mean time making a foul).
8. A goal shall be made when the ball is thrown or batted from the grounds into the basket and stays there
(without falling), providing those defending the goal do not touch or disturb the goal. If the ball rests on the edges,
and the opponent moves the basket, it shall count as a goal.
9. When the ball goes out of bounds, it shall be thrown into the field of play and played by the first person touching it.
In case of dispute the umpire shall throw it straight into the field. The thrower-in is allowed five seconds. If he holds it
longer, it shall go to the opponent. If any side persists in delaying the game, the umpire shall call a foul on that side.
10. The umpire shall be the judge of the men and shall note the fouls and notify the referee when three consecutive
fouls have been made. He shall have power to disqualify people according to Rule 5.
Basketball Sneakers - Players should wear comfortable, properly fitting basketball sneakers. There are so many styles, varieties and names to choose from today that it is often difficult to know which sneakers to buy.
Basketball Player Equipment
Athletic Socks - Players should wear athletic socks. This will help prevent their feet and toes from blistering and will also provide additional comfort for their feet.
Athletic Shirt or Jersey - Players should wear a loose-fitting, comfortable shirt, jersey or tank-top. Again, this will allow them to move quickly and freely without having their arms or upper body restricted.
Basketball - This falls more in the basketball equipment section rather than the basketball player equipment section. But I think it is still something every player should have in order to practice the game and improve their skills.
1. The ball may be thrown in any direction with one or both hands.
2. The ball may be batted in any direction with one or both hands.
3. A player cannot run with the ball. The player must throw it from the spot on which he catches it, allowance to be made for a man who catches the ball when running at a good speed if he tries to stop.
4. The ball must be held in or between the hands; the arms or body must not be used for holding it.
5. No shouldering, holding, striking, pushing, or tripping in any way of an opponent. The first infringement of this rule by any person shall count as a foul; the second shall disqualify him until the next basket is made or, if there was evident intent to injure the person, for the whole of the game.
"Basketball is played around the world at different levels. A pickup game can be found in most places, but for a more-organized game, teams are put together at different levels. Whether the basketball player is playing for fun or is getting paid millions of dollars to compete, everyone can find a team that suits their skill level."
Players can also play in a private recreational league. These leagues vary in difficulty. Some club teams are more relaxed and meant for fun. Leagues like the Amateur Athletic Union, or AAU, are very competitive and feature some of the best high school basketball players in the country. These teams often travel and require a tryout to make the team.
Many colleges and universities have basketball teams at the Division I, Division II, Division III or National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics level. Division I features the toughest competition, where teams travel across the country and compete for a national championship.
Professional basketball leagues exist around the world. The National Basketball Association includes some of the best players in the world, and they compete for a world championship. These players are the best, and are drafted or signed to contracts out of college. Other leagues exist around the world.

I choose this topic because it is my favorite sport.
I find basketball enjoyable and entertaining. I picked my resources by evaluating them. I evaluate the websites by looking if it is real or fake. Also, I look when it was last updated. I like prezi because the format is unique. I learned from this project that the inventors name is James Nasmith. Also James the inventor of basketball first used a peach basket as a hoop.
