Spaulding was the first company to manufacture basketballs.
Ozzy Sheckman made the first basket in 1946
I believe the first basketball game available for the Xbox 360 was the NBA Basketball 2K6.
The first Spalding basketball was made in 1894 by Albert Goodwull Spalding - three years after the invention of the game in 1891. When the game of basketball was first invented, it was actually played with a soccer ball.
