When the player that receives the pass dribbles the ball. If the player receiving the ball makes a jump shot without dribbling or drives the basket and makes the shot without dribbling an assist is awarded.

Actully no, an assist counts if the playr that got th bal passed to scores in less then 2 seconds. Not when he dribbles. Thats not true. You get 3 seconds 2 score. And the player passing th ball gets the assist

How has basketball changed?

Basketball, invented by James Nasmith in december 1891. Many things have changed about this sport, hear are some ways. First of all their used to be only 13 ruels and you could not move with the ball, now their are more than 13 rules and you can move with the ball as long as you are dribeling it.

Finally my last point on how basketball has changed is by the basket, it is no longer a peach basket it is now a rim baskbord and a net, also the three point line was invented.
