Best Answer

James Naismith, who invented the game of Basketball, was the first one to play the game. He demonstrated the rules he had developed for the game (as it was initially conceived by him) by tossing a basket ball (two words) into a peach basket, ten feet from the ground. Subsequent to that, he organized players on teams in Springfield, Massachusetts (where the first players and teams played the game).
