Rules and positions
In basketball there are five players to a team. In the NBA the games are played in four, twelve minute quarters. In order to score during the game you have to throw the ball in the net and have it go through. The NBA court dimensions are 94 by 50 feet.
One position in the game is called the center. The tallest player on the team generally plays center because you have to be as tall as possible to get rebounds.
Sometimes the players on the court will break the rules. When they do, they get punished. One type of punishment is a technical fowl. this punishment is used when the player gets in fights or arguments with other players o officials at the game. A flagrant foul is when a player almost injures or seriously injures another opposing player.
The only equipment needed for a basketball game is a basketball, a basketball net, and a basketball court.
Basketball is played by armatures, high school, NBA , and many types of professional leages. It is a very diverse sport.
Basketball has changed a lot over the years. Basketball has kept all of its old rules the same but has added in lots of new ones over the years. The original thirteen rules has turned to over one hundred rules. Some major changes have been the number of players, ball dribbling, and court boundaries.
