Fact of the Day: Basketball Club

While the NBA is synonymous with pro-basketball, it was originally called the Basketball Association of America. It became the National Basketball Association when it merged with its rival, the National Basketball League in 1949.

Wasn't basketball invented as a game for people in wheelchairs? If so, the game has come a long way since then.
