Basketball is a popular team sport that is played by two teams of five players on a rectangular court. The objective of the game is to score points by shooting a ball through a hoop, called a basket, which is mounted on a backboard at each end of the court. Points are scored by shooting the ball through the basket, with different values assigned to different types of shots.

In basketball, players use their hands to dribble, pass, and shoot the ball. They are also allowed to move the ball by bouncing it off the floor, or dribbling it, up to a certain number of times without taking their feet off the ground. To defend, players try to steal the ball from the offense or block their shots.

There are many different levels of basketball, including professional, college, high school, and amateur leagues. The most popular professional league is the National Basketball Association (NBA) in the United States. There are also international basketball tournaments, including the Olympics and the FIBA World Cup.

Basketball is a sport that requires physical fitness, agility, and coordination. It can be played indoors or outdoors and is enjoyed by people of all ages around the world. Book Trainer.
