Basketball is a ball game predominately played indoors. Basketball is played with two teams, each of 5 players. The aim is to throw the ball into the opponent's basket that is mounted at a height of 3.05 metres. If it goes in the basket, the respective team scores points. The amount of points awarded for a shoot depends on the distance the shooter is from the basket. A score of two or three points is possible. Free shoots are awarded one point.

The ball game of basketball originated in Canada in 1891. By 1930, basketball was already an Olympic sport. The renowned US league, the 'National Basketball Association' (NBA) gained its name in 1949. In 1946 the league was originally called the Basketball Association of America (BAA). The admittance of professional players to the Olympic Games in 1992 was of international significance for basketball. Today the sport is played around the world. Every four years the world basketball association, the 'Federation Internationale de Basketball' (FIBA), holds the Basketball World Cup. The competition is held in a different country each time. Today, basket ball has spread around the world and many countries have a basketball league. The German Basketball League (the Basketball-Bundesliga (BBL) was founded in 1966.
