DR. JAMES NAISMITH

Dr. James Naismith invented basketball in 1891 after seeing the need for more indoor sports options during the cold months of winter. With a soccer ball, two peach baskets and a set of rules, the sport was born.

“I am sure that no man can derive more pleasure from money or power than I do from seeing a pair of basketball goals in some out-of-the-way place.” -DR. JAMES NAISMITH
