On Dec. 15, 1891, James Naismith, a Canadian physical education instructor, invents Basketball, while working at the Y.M.C.A. College at Springfield, Massachusetts On Jan 15, 1892, Triangle magazine in Springfield, MA published the rules for a brand new game: the one we know that began by attaching peach baskets to a suspended board. It is better known as basketball. More input from FAQ Farmers: * The Rules of basketball were formed by James Naismith. They were formed at a time were little knowledge was available. So they were formed as a way for a sport to be played indoors during the winter. They were formed by careful examination of People at the Y M C A and other sports such as soccer and football.
