Learn More About The Basketball Hoop Drawing

Basketball is an iconic American sport. Its legendary players, such as Michael Jordan and LeBron James, are considered heroes. It is the only sport to date whose origins lie solely in America.

How did basketball begin? It was a rainy day in 1891. James Naismith was teaching a P.E. class at a YMCA school in Massachusetts. Stuck inside, what was his class to do? With a soccer ball and two half-bushel peach baskets, Naismith invented the game we now call basketball.

School football teams helped popularize the sport; when the weather was too cold to practice outside, they would go inside and play basketball.

Did you know? Early basketball baskets had bottoms, so each time points were scored, the ball had to be retrieved from the basket. Later, the bottom of the basket was removed, but the balls were too large to fall through. Instead, a long pole was used to propel the ball out the top of the basket.

Actual baskets were used until 1906, when the metal rim and backboard was introduced. The backboard also prevented fans with balcony seats from interfering with the shots, and allowed for rebounds.

From its humble roots, basketball has now spread across the world. Not only do professional teams exist in many countries, but public parks often sport outdoor basketball courts.

Recreational basketball goals can be seen outside homes and on neighborhood streets. This half-court version of the game is often called "streetball." Other spin-offs of the game, including a beach version that allows carrying of the ball, have been invented.

Would you like to draw a basketball goal? Doing so is easier than ever with the help of this simple, step-by-step drawing guide. All you will need is a pencil, pen, or marker and a sheet of paper. You may also wish to color your finished drawing.
