Best Answer

Basketball was created by Dr. James Naismith, born in Almonte, Ontario (near Ottawa, Canada). Dr. Naismith used an apple basket with the bottom cut out for the first basket. Dr. Naismith invented the game in the United States, at a private school. He wanted to give young boys a game of agility and skill, with little cost involved.
