Best Answer

Basketball is good for you because you run up and down a court trying to score in the basket and trying to get around 5 defenders and sometimes your own teammates. Then after you make the basket, or you miss and the other team gets the rebound, you have to play defense and prevent the other team from scoring. You can also steal the ball and go on a fastbreak, and then you are going as fast as you possibly can to keep the defense away from catching you and blocking your shot.
