Basketball is an affordable game so that anyone can play this game with a basketball and a hoop. And the price of basketball is not so high. So, you can easily afford it. And if you want to use a high-quality basketball that the pro players use, you can buy an expensive one. But whatever the ball is costly or cheap, you can still play with the ball with more comfort and get good results. Besides, to play this game, you don’t need a specific place. And if you want to practice it in a court, there are many public, private, and community schools for basketball that are easily attainable. And now it comes to the sports gear.

But it is better to use a boot as you can get injured, and legs play a vital role in this game. But the price of the shoes is also affordable.

You can play this game with five or more players at the same time. Many other sports are played by only two or four players, so the other players become bore to get his/her turn.

The basketball fundamentals are straightforward to learn
To play this game, you have to know how to dribble and shoot the ball. And then you have to practice more and more to improve your dribbling and shooting skills. And you can learn dribbling and shooting by watching, and after that, you need to practice a lot to make a good shoot. And now it comes to defending the opponent, and it is very easy to defend the opponent if he/she is not a very good player. And if you are playing against a good player, then you should improve your defense skill. To defense the player’s shoot, you need to stand in front of the player and try to block the way of the player with the body and use your arms to prevent him from passing or shooting the balls. But you have to use the legal way to defense.
