Origins of Basketball

There has been a long running debate as to the invention of basketball. Many Canadian websites and Canadian heritage TV spots claim that basketball is a Canadian invention. Meanwhile, there's no shortage of claims that basketball is an all-American sport. As it turns out, both sides are wrong.

Basketball was created by James Naismith, a Canadian, while working in Springfield, Massachusetts. And while the first game took place in the United States, no less than 10 of the players of the first basketball game where from Quebec. It seems that basketball was part of both countries heritage.
