Not sure about basketball, but in Olympic football, each team is allowed 3 over 23 year olds in their squad. Basketball may be different though
Technically yes. Ricky Rubio played for the Spanish National team as a teenager. Basketball teams that make the Olympics usually have older and better players than 16 year olds, however. Some Olympic gymnasts and divers are 16 year olds, but generally no basketball players are.
In a basketball team 5 basketball players are allowed on the court, 12 players are active in one match, and the team is allowed to have 15 players.answered by lecamarcolino-here to get 100% in knowledge
When basketball was first created players were not allowed to dribble the ball.
15 players at least
By most accounts, the first time basketball was officially played at the Olympics was in 1936 in Berlin, with only amateur players-- and at that time, this meant men only. In 1992, professionals were allowed to compete for the first time.
Everyone can play basketball if you have the dedication. Professional women players play in the Women's National Basketball Association (WNBA) while professional men players play in the National Basketball Association.
The NBA (National Basketball Association) did not exist in 1920.
