Born from a soccer ball, a peach basket, and the idea of Dr. James Naismith back in 1891, basketball would soon take the sports world by storm! With a set of formal rules in place, the game of basketball rapidly spread across the nation, Canada, and worldwide. With a number of U.S. colleges picking up the game, basketball was all the rage and soon became a major college sport by the 1950s.
As interest in professional basketball grew, the professional leagues, such as the National Basketball League (1937) and the Basketball Association of America (1946) would form before merging together to create the National Basketball Association (NBA). Before long, professional basketball had swept the country, thrilling millions of basketball fans and creating superstars and iconic teams like the Boston Celtics, Los Angeles Lakers, and Chicago Bulls over the decades.
