History of World Basketball
Basketball is a type of sport that is done in groups where each team consists of 5 main players and some reserve players. The sport of basketball is still popular since it was made in 1891 by a sports teacher named Dr. James Naismith. Dr. James is a Canadian who taught at YMCA Professional Student College in Springfield, Massachusetts, United States.
The inspiration for making basketball in Dr. James when he was confused about looking for an activity to fill the winter holidays in England for his students at that time. Then Dr. James remembered a game he used to play when he was a child called Ontario. From this childhood game then Dr. James invented the game of basketball.
Basketball game or basket ball was first made on December 15, 1981. Initially Dr. James just put a basket of peaches used on the wall and his students were told to put the ball into it. Formerly the sport of basketball is only used by men. However, because women also liked this sport, in 1892 a women's basketball team was created.
From the beginning the appearance of this sport many people were interested in trying it. Until January 20, 1892 basketball competition was officially made. This match was conducted at Dr. James. Then the basketball sport began to develop rapidly and the rules in it were also adjusted.
Where at the beginning of this sport it appeared using 9 players and there were no dribble techniques in inside of it. But since basketball was famous in the United States, the number of players was changed to 5 people. After the basketball game that was held in Dr. Smith then in 1910 held an official basketball match again at the request of President Roosevelt.
In 1920 basketball sport began to spread throughout the world and began to enter high school level at that time. Furthermore, in 1932 basketball sport increasingly showed its existence where this year the International Basketball Federation was created. Countries included in this Federation such as Italy, Latvia, Greece, Switzerland, Romania, Portugal, Czechoslovakia, and Argentina.
Then 4 years after the federation was formed, a basketball olympics was made precisely in 1936. Then in the year 1946 BAA (Basketball Association of America) is formed which is tasked with forming a professional basketball team. But three years later, in 1949 BAA was renamed the NBA (National Basketball Association) and the name of the NBA survived until now.
Amazingly since the first Olympics were held, the basketball team from the United States always won. And until now the basketball team from America only lost 3 matches. From this it can be concluded that the basketball team from America where the first place for basketball was created has been great ever since.

Because basketball enthusiasts continued to grow then on October 23, 1951 a basketball association was formed which was named the All Indonesian Basketball Association.
The name of this association did not last long because in 1955 the name was changed to the All Indonesian Basketball Association or which is known today as PERBASI. Not waiting for a long time only took 2 years for Perbasi to be received by FIBA (The International Basketball Federation) precisely in 1953. Then in 1954 for the first time Indonesia sent its basketball team to the Manila Asian Games.
