In the initial era of Basketball as we know it, an out of bounds pass was awarded to the first person to possess it. Well, it didn't take long for this rule to cause problems. Players were fighting for balls off of the court...fans were getting involved...and it was more like today's pro Wrestling than it was basketball. Well, like hockey, it was decided that it would be an improvement for fans if the court was "caged" with a fence, and the patrons were protected. The players eneded up playing in a "cage," and thus the tag "Cagers" became a common term of endearment. Soon after the decision to "cage" the court came an even better one - to change the out of bounds rule altogether. Once the rule was changed, the fence was removed, and the "cagers" became a thing of the past. Now you know.
Ther term 'cagers' comes from the early days of professional basketball leagues when the games were played within a wire or rope cage to separate the crowd from the court and to speed up action by always keeping the ball in bounds.
The uniforms of basketball players are called "skirts"
Early basketball games were played with a cage around the court, giving rise to the term 'cagers' that is used to describe a basketball player.
