It's a basket. Henca why it's called basketball.
The post or key.
better chance of making a basket
Ball 'n a basket! Some people call basketball "hoops".
James Naismith called his invention "Basket Ball".
Goal, or I heard some call it basket
The closest you can get is, actually making it. The closest you could get without making a basket would have to be, after shooting the ball, it swirls/bounces inside the basket on the rim, then pops out.
Field Goal, making a basket worth 2 points.
The first basket for basketball used was accutally a peach basket and basketball was invented by a canidian named James Naismith! :)
Assuming that you mean basketball and just left out the "t" (instead of baseball and accidentally added a "k"), they call it le basket. To play basketball is jouer au basket.
There was a basket...and a ball...and they tried getting the ball IN the basket...hence basketball
