A History of Basketball

Ever wondered about the origins of basketball? Here are a few highlights of the sport:

Development out of boredom

During the winter between 1891 and 1892, a 31-year-old graduate student named James Naismith found himself looking for something different and exciting to do while he was at the Springfield College gymnasium in Massachusetts. After considering different options, Naismith developed basketball with an initial list of 13 rules. The game quickly caught on in popularity and grew into the fantastic pastime that it is today.

The National Basketball League

It wasn’t until 1898 that the first professional basketball league took shape. Since that time, the National Basketball League has grown by leaps and bounds. Currently, there are 38 professional teams that play in the United States, including the Sacramento Kings, the Philadelphia 76ers, and the Los Angeles Lakers—all of which can trace their history back to the original basketball league that took shape over a century ago.

An Olympic jump

Although basketball first made its appearance in the Olympics in 1904, it didn’t become an official Olympic event until 1936. In the 1936 games, the U.S. team won the gold medal by beating the Canadian team. Over 10,000 basketball fans clamoured into the arena in Berlin to watch the game.

Common Questions

If you’re new to basketball betting or esports betting, you may have some questions. Here are some of the top questions that we field from our bettors:

Is it difficult to sign up for an account with Picklebet?

We know that you don’t want to spend exorbitant amounts of time registering for an account to place a bet on your favourite basketball team, which is why we’ve made the registration process quick and easy. Simply provide us with a few pieces of personal information so that we can verify your identity, then select how you plan to fund your account and start placing your bets.

What happens if a game goes to overtime?

Always read the rules associated with the contest that you would like to enter. Most contests close at the end of regulation; however, you should look through the market description to ensure that the results aren’t based on overtime scores.

Can I place a bet on more than one game?

Absolutely. Usually, multiple basketball games take place during the season, so feel free to place your bet on one or all of them.
