It wasn't invented by the white man as most people think.
Basketball originated in Africa, where blacks would play using coconuts or anything round that they could find or make.
They would also tie baskets to the top of trees and play like that.
The white man just wanted the credit for something he didn't invent, like always.
Brasil: No wonder black people are so good at basketball. They have been playing it for ages.
HyunGyum: Man... I wish I was black, but I'm just a short asian kid. I wish I had your black genes John. :(
John: What the fuck...

The best sport in the universe. It's fast paced, needs skill, can be played alone or with others, and there's a big potential to improve.
Basketball rules - it's an awesome sport that everyone should play.
