The invention of basketball is pretty basic. A football coach was looking for a way to keep his players in shape, so he nailed a peach basket to a tall post. He told his players to get the ball in the basket and prevent the other players from doing so. It just made most sense to make the ball circular so that it could be shot into the basket.
The tallest I've seen was around 6'8, though most are around 6'1 or so.

Keep in mind that basketball requires more endurance than football so the training must be geared slightly more towards endurance then pure explosive movements.

Tall depends on what culture you are talking about. Americans consider basketball players "tall" and they range from six to seven feet tall. The average height for a man in the US is 5 feet 9 inches, for a woman it is 5 feet 4 inches, so anything taller than that can be considered tall.

Yes soccer players get paid more than basketball player. The reason for this is that Basketball is mostly funded by the US. Soccer is funded by many countries. So soccer is the higher paid sport.
That is true in a way. In the US basketball is more popular than soccer. That is why basketball players are paid more. In other countries, soccer is more popular so soccer players get paid more. Soccer in the US is becoming increasingly popular. Soon soccer players could be paid as much as basketball players.
