no basketball is not presently an Olympic sport today
Basketball was invented over 1,000 years ago by the Mayas.It's not the same kind of basketball that we play today. Basketball was invented in 1891 by Janes Naismith. It was created as a winter sport that would incorporate the skills of soccer with an indoor activity to keep soccer players in shape. As originally an off-season sport for soccer, it soon became popular on its own terms.
Polo is a popular sport in Bhutan today.
Basketball is the most popular sport on the Navajo Nation today. Horse and foot racing were once very popular.
"I love playing basketball with my friends." "Today is the first day for basketball try-outs." "That basketball still needs to be inflated." "Hey, pass me the basketball!" "Is basketball the most popular sport?" "First one to score 21 points wins the basketball game."
Soccer today can be seen everywhere! :) Very popular sport

It is named after Brian B. Scalabrine. He was the creator of the sport and really perfected it to what it is today. So the world decided to name the sport after his middle name.
