Best Answer

here by "football" I am assuming as real football and not American football or Rugby. I play both Basketball and football, according to me basketball requires more stamina when compared because a good basketball player do not have time to take rest while playing and should always be running around, all 5 players plays as defense and offense, the game is more faster. In football, we have wings, defense, striker etc for various roles and they do not play both defense and offense unlike basketball.
Example, when the ball is being played on the other side, that's like when our team attack them, our defense have time to take rest during the game itself staying behind.

Basketball = good player runs more
Football = bad player runs more trying to get the ball
