Who wouldn't know about the raw and infectious basketball fever? Well, the game indeed increases the temperature and the energy level of all those who watch it.
The game may be a team sport with five players competing to win, but owing to the immense popularity and interest, the entire stadium seems highly invested in all the shots.
Basketball is a team sport with two teams, both contending on a basketball hoop with the prime aim of shooting the ball through the said basket. A player employs all sorts of individual and team strategies to get their ball through the hoops on the opposite end.
To begin with, both the teams have a single ball of approximately 9.4 inches (24 cm). Each of them is on the court with the ball and the purpose of hitting the hoop, having a basket tethered firmly at the height of 10 feet. They are also fighting hard on the court to prevent the opposing team.
Now, there is more to Basketball than just shooting your baskets. The players dribble the ball. They can also pass it to a teammate, which requires strategic positioning and mindfulness. Be it offense or defense - both teams can gather a rebound, which is a botched shot that ricochets off the hoop.
However, the players are also supposed to keep some restrictions in mind, like not advancing without dribbling. You can imagine the professional approach and discipline the game can teach you. Watch it once on the court, and you'll see each of these steps coming into live-action!
Basketball is so popular within the country that it isn't just limited to one league. There's NBA, NCAA, WNBA, and many more!
The game is a powerful display of team spirit where all of these players come in together with a single objective. If you want to witness the madness, the unity, and the beauty of the game, get tickets and watch it yourself. Be sure to get the front row seats and cheer for the players you love.
