The difference between basketball and netball is that in basketball you can take more than 2 steps and dribble up the court, but in netball the most amount of steps you can take is 2 and you are put in certain positions. Another difference is that netball is played in thirds and basketball in halves.
Netball is played in thirds, basketball in half's. Netball is non-contact, while basketball is contact. Netball nets are similar to basketball nets but have no backboard are taller and smaller in diameter. Netball has seven players, basketball has five. Netball players have bibs and specific positions, basketball does not.
One of the similarties of netball and basketball is that the court is the same. You can use the same court for both games. Other than that and some other stuff, I think there is endless differences betweent the two games.
