Sports

I have seen mostly people here in earth playing basketball as their daily routine, Basketball is a team sport that compose of 2 teams with 5 players on it, The objective is being to shoot the ball through a basket horizontally positioned to score points while following a set of rules.

Basketball has evolved many commonly used techniques of shooting, passing, dribbling, and rebounding, as well as specialized player positions and offensive and defensive structures (player positioning) and techniques. Typically, the tallest members of a team will play “center”, “power forward” or “small forward” positions, while shorter players or those who possess the best ball handling skills and speed play “point guard” or “shooting guard”.

Various Violations are generally called “fouls”. Disruptive physical contact (a personal foul is penalized, and a free throws  is usually awarded to an offensive player if he is fouled while shooting the ball. A technical fouls may also be issued when certain infractions occur, most commonly for unsportman conduct on the part of a player or coach. A technical foul gives the opposing team a free throw.

Rules and regulations:

Measurements and time limits discussed in this section often vary among tournaments and organizations; international and NBA rules are used in this section.

The object of the game is to outscore one’s opponents by throwing the ball through the opponents’ basket from above while preventing the opponents from doing so on their own. An attempt to score in this way is called a shot. A successful shot is worth two points, or 3 points if it is taken from beyond the three-point arc which is 6.25 metres (20 ft 6 in) from the basket in international games and 23 feet 9 inches (7.24 m) in NBA games. A one-point shot can be earned when shooting from the foul line after a foul is made.
