How did basketball changed over the years?
" The three point line is new, and has be moved further back - twice. The key has widen, and the officiating has adapted to the way the activity is being played now.

He wanted to "create an indoor activity that didn't involve much physical contact and could be played during the winter by the school's students. Using a soccer ball and two peach baskets fastened to the railings of the gallery surrounding a gym -- and incorporating strategies and objectives involved in a childhood game he played called "Duck on a Rock" -- Naismith devised thirteen rules for a new game he termed "Basket Ball."
