Best Answer

Because the ball is shot into a net.

-Also, because the first hoop was a peach basket- hence 'basket'ball.
A Canadian doctor, Dr. Naismith , first had the idea to create a game that would fill gymnasiums during wintertime. After long and deep thoughts, he found this principle: two teams must throw a ball into a basket. At the very beginning , the basket was not pierced but they rapidly decided to do so. (To make the game quicker)
