Transcript of Basketball ERP! Enjoy! :-)

Each player is assigned a position when playing. This position is usually
determined by the height of the player.
The tallest player on the team usually plays “center” also known as
“position 5”, while the medium size ones play “forwards” / “position 3 and
4”. The shortest players then play “guards” / “position 1 and 2”. Position 3 is also called "small forward", position 4 is called "power forward", position 2 is called "shooting guard" and position 1 is called "point guard".
A player scores when he manages to throw the ball into the basket, with
the ball passing through the basket from above the hoop. Scoring a basket
increases the team’s score by 3, 2 or one point.
If the player successfully shoots from outside of the 3 points line, the
basket is worth 3 points, otherwise it is worth 2 points.
It is also possible to score one point when shooting from the free throw
line, after a foul for instance.
Number of players:
If you want to play basketball for fun, you have the possibility of playing on your own. But you can also play team games with either 1, 2, 3,4 or 5 players on each teams. Teams can be mixed, with boys and girls, or not. On a competition level, a team is made up of 5 players playing on the court and 5 players sitting on the bench that can be used for substitution during the whole period of the game.
Welcome to my ERP! :) As part of our 5/6 level we have been given 1 term to present and investigate about something! I have researched about basketball as it is one of my key interests! You will find out about epic world records and rules and guidelines to being a great coach! HOPE YOU ENJOY! :)
Remember if you have to ask me to repeat a sentence or if I am going too fast to put your hand up and tell me! :)
A violation occurs when the player breaks one of the rules of Basketball.
A violation results in the awarding of the ball to the opponents.
It can also result from the player taking more than 2 steps without
bouncing the ball on the floor. This is called Traveling.
Another example of violation occurs when a player stops dribbling and then
starts dribbling again or when he bounces the ball with both hands on the
ball. We call this a double Dribble.
A violation is also committed if you twist your hand, when in contact with
the ball, beyond the vertical, bringing it under the ball. This is called
Carry, as the hand must always remain on the top of the ball.
A foul is an illegal action that can be committed by a player from one team
against a player from the opposing team. Basketball is generally said to
be a non-contact game. If contact occurs beyond what is deemed to be
reasonable, or if a player thereby obtains an unfair advantage from it, a
foul is committed.
There are two types of fouls. The first are called defensive fouls. They
occur when the offensive player is being fouled by the defender. Defenders
should not block, push, trip, strike or hold the player in possession of
the ball. The second ones are the offensive fouls. For example, a player
in offence commits a foul when charging into a stationary defender.

Amazing! :)
Aboriginals in basketball
Michael Ahmatt was born in 1942. (Could not find his birth date.) he joined the Australian Basketball Hall of Fame in August 2010. He was selected to represent the Northern Territory at the 1959 Australian championships and is considered to be Australia’s first Aboriginal basketballer. He went on to play 588 games over 20 seasons. In 1964 he became the first Aboriginal Australian to represent his country and the first Territorian to compete at the Olympic Games in Tokyo, Japan. He retired from basketball in 1979 and died of a heart attack in 1983, aged just 40. Michael is already a member of the Aboriginal and Islander Sports Hall of Fame.
Patrick Sammy "Patty" Mills born on 11 August 1988 is an Indigenous Australian professional basketball player who currently plays for the San Antonio Spurs of the National Basketball Association (NBA). In the NBA, he has also played for the Portland Trail Blazers. He is one of the first Indigenous Australians to play basketball in the NBA and is one of the youngest players ever to suit up for the Australian national basketball team, the Boomers. At the 2012 Olympic basketball tournament, Mills had the highest scoring average with 21.2 points per game, ahead of Kevin Durant of the USA, who averaged 19.5 points per game.
Rohanee Cox born on 23 April 1980 is an Australian women's basketball player who plays for Australia. She is an Australian aboriginal and has one daughter. She played club basketball for the WNBL's Perth Lynx, Townsville Fire and West Coast Waves. She was one of the first Australian aboriginals to represent Australia in basketball at the Olympics. She won a silver medal as a member of the Australia women's national basketball team at the 2008 Summer Olympics.

Nathan Leon "Nate" Jawai born on 10 October 1986 is an Indigenous Australian professional basketball player who currently plays for Galatasaray Liv Hospital of the Turkish Basketball League and the Euroleague. Nathan was the first ever Indigenous ever to play basketball in the NBA! :)
Other world records!!! :)
Jason“White Shadow”Gibbons completed three no-look half court shots in a row. He set the record as part of a “Shots for a Cause” program designed to raise money for various charities.
Pete Moyer made a successful basketball shot from 42.5 feet away while juggling three basketballs in a cascade pattern.
Gasper D. made a successful basketball shot from 40 feet while hula hooping.
Delphine Boone spun two basketballs at the same time on top of ballpoint pens on her shoes for 5.29 seconds.
:( Racism in basketball :(
Jeremy Lin is a professional basketballer from America. In 2012 he got picked on so badly that he rose to fame because of all the bullying. Jeremy Lin made a three year contract with Houston Rockets last year. That's when the bulling started.
Dennis Rodman made racist comments towards Larry Bird and didn't get charged for it. If a white player makes a comment on a black person there would be a big fight. So this is saying that black skinned was more racist then the white skinned.
Kobe Bryant was found doing flagrant fouls to other players on purpose. Kobe knew this was the wrong thing to do! :(
Quick Hint:...
If you didn't know already..
Flagrant means to do an action considered wrong or immortal. It could also be conspicuously or obviously offensive.
Shaquille O'Neal (also known as Shaq) was found making racist comments towards one of the players in the team he was playing against (the team was Houston Rockets). He was making fun of the Houston Rockets centre Mao Ling mimicking his Chinese accent. Shaq told Mao that he was only having a joke. You never have a joke about peoples race!
Basketball facts!
When basketball was first invented the colour of the ball was brown. Later on it changed to a sort of orange colour which they still use today!
In 1982 the first international basketball game was played. The court was only half the size of the basketball courts then we have in the 21st century!
Quick Hint....
If you didn't know already.. Cascade means in a pattern or in a series of things.
Basketball was first played with a soccer ball but later in 1929 the basketball was created! :)
Patty Mills:
Michael Ahmatt
Rohanee Cox
Nathan Leon Jawai
At the time in 1967 slam dunks were illegal because a lot of people got terribly injured.
After nine years later they changed the rules so you could slam dunk.
