Best Answer

Basketball is called basketball because when it was first invented by a gym teacher the goal was to get the ball into a trash basket sitting on the ground. The only rules were that you could not walk with the ball so you had to either shoot or pass from where you got the ball. the players invented dribbling themselves.
