  • Historical of Basketball Sports

Basketball is a worldwide sport and one of the popular sport on this day. This sport introduced by an instructor named James Naismith. Basketball is one of the most popular sports for residents of the United States and various people around the world, such as South America, Southern Europe, Lithuania, including the beloved country of Indonesia. The beginning of basketball history entered Indonesia, since 1984, along with the arrival of traders from China. Basketball has been played by the Chinese in Tientsin Province and then spread throughout mainland China. Those who trade in Indonesia are a middle-class group who prefer American sports as the identity of the modern Chinese group.

The entry of basketball to Indonesia supported by the fact that before and at the beginning of independence Basketball clubs in several big cities such as Jakarta, Medan, Bandung, Semarang, DI Yogyakarta, and Surabaya mostly grew from Chinese schools. It was also from the club that an Indonesian legendary player, Liem Tjien Siong, who was later known as Sonny Hendrawan was born (In 1967 Sonny was selected as the Best Player at the 4th Asian Basketball Championship in Seoul, South Korea. At that time, the Indonesian team was ranked number one. -4 under the Philippines, Korea, and Japan).

In 1948, when the State of Indonesia held the PON I held in Solo, basketball had become one of the sports that was contested. This proves that basketball is quickly popular in society and is officially recognized by the State. Three years later, Maladi as Secretary of the Indonesian Olympic Committee (KOI) who later became Minister of Sports, asked Tonny Wen and Wim Latumeten to form a basketball organization. But in the end, because of the demands of the need to unite basketball organizations, it was agreed to form the Indonesian Basketball Association in 1955, abbreviated as Perbasi.

Basketball is considered a unique sport because it was created accidentally by a sports teacher. In 1891, Dr. James Naismith, a Canadian sports teacher who teaches at a college for professional students at the YMCA (a Christian youth forum) in Springfield, Massachusetts, had to make a game in a closed room to fill the students' time during the winter holidays in New England. Inspired by a game he played as a child in Ontario, Naismith created the game now known as basketball on December 15, 1891.

According to the story, after rejecting some ideas because they were deemed too loud and unsuitable to be played in closed rinks, he then wrote down some basic rules, stuck a basket on the sports hall wall, and asked the students to start playing his game.

The first official basketball game was held on January 20, 1892, at Dr. James Naismith. Basketball is a term uttered by one of his students. This sport soon became famous throughout the United States. Fanatic fans are placed in all branches in the United States. Match after the match was held in all cities in the state of the United States.

At first, there are nine people in each team and there are no dribbles, so the ball can only move through the throw. The history of basketball game rules begins with 13 basic rules written by James Naismith himself.
