Basketball - enjoy the game with your perfect basketball clothing
Developed in the late 18th century, the team sport has become quite popular today. Basketball was created by the Canadian coach James Naismith who was looking for a certain kind of sport to keep his students active on cold winter days. What was once planned as a simply physical activity in winter, entered the world in triumph: basketball.
The height of the basket of 3.05 m (10 ft) which is still valid today was once determined by pure chance. In order to make it impossible to disturb the game from the outside, they fixed some wooden boards behind the basket. Altogether 13 basic rules were defined for the game and almost all are still unchanged and valid today. Since 1936, basketball is an Olympic discipline. Today more than 450 million people worldwide are thrilled by playing basketball.
NBA - the National Basketball Association
The NBA is in the centre of the public attention concerning basketball. The National Basketball Association was founded in 1946 and is the biggest and most popular professional basketball league. Not only fans in North America follow the games, but there are millions of NBA supporters all over the world. And since the famous German Dirk Nowitzki, the British Luol Deng or the French Tony Parker are playing in the NBA, the number of European fans increased significantly. The importance of the ball game usually played inside is reflected in numerous international competitions and tournaments.
Over the years, the basketball game changed as well as the basketball clothing. However, the basic rules of the game didn’t. The enthusiasm for basketball is not only obvious when you look at the players but also when you see the live audience and all the thrilled basketball fans who bet online on games … trend upwards!
The perfect basketball clothing
Once they played basketball in plain trousers and the basketball jersey was initially made of wool. Furthermore, the players had to wear knee pads and shin guards because the conditions of the sports halls were so poor that players got hurt quite easily. Today, the players use comfortable shorts instead of long trousers. The basketball jersey is sleeveless and offers a high wearing comfort. Many renowned manufacturers of sports items such as Reebok, Nike etc. added basketball sportswear like basketball jerseys, basketball shoes or basketball shorts to their range of products. Adidas is one of the most popular manufacturers of basketball clothing such as basketball jerseys.

It's all about the basketball
However, it’s not only the basketball clothing and the basketball jerseys which changed over the years – the basketball did, too. Once made from leather panels similar to a volleyball, today’s balls are made from a synthetic composite or leather stitched together with nylon. The usual balls have an inflatable inner rubber bladder wrapped in layers of genuine leather, imitation leather or synthetic composite. Traditionally, the surface of the basketball is orange with black lines dividing it into eight panels.
