… that today is the birthday of James Naismith (1861)? Dr. James Naismith is known worldwide as the inventor of basketball. The concept of basketball was born from Naismith’s school days in the area where he played a simple child’s game known as duck-on-a-rock outside his one-room schoolhouse. The game involved attempting to knock a “duck” off the top of a large rock by tossing another rock at it. Today, basketball has grown to become one of the world’s most popular sports. Let your imagination run wild today and invent a new game!
