What country did basketball originate from?

-What country or state did basketball really originate from? -When was it invented? -Who invented basketball? -Why is it called basketball?

Basketball was invented in Springfield, MA, USA in 1891 by Dr. James Naismith (who was actually a Canadian).

It was named "basket ball" due to the fact that it originally was played by getting a ball into a peach basket that was mounted on a 10 foot high track at a YMCA that Dr. James Naismith worked at..

How old was james naismith when he invented basketball?

In the winter of 1891, when a thirty-year old physical education instructor from the local YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts named James Naismith invented an indoor game that could be played between football and baseball seasons, basketball was born. Naismith wrote and developed basketball's original thirteen rules and, through the YMCA network, quickly spread the news throughout the country.

No basketball was not invented in Canada, it was invented in America, Springfield, by a canadian because they were bored during breaks and he, James Naismith, put a peach basket so they had something to do.
" At Springfield College (which was then the Y.M.C.A. training school), James Naismith, under the direction of American phys-ed specialist Luther Halsey Gulick, invented the indoor sport of basketball." I coulda used wiki but i doubt you would trust it so here...

Here's another source:
"Originally basketball was called Basket Ball. It was invented in 1891 by a Canadian, Dr. James Naismith who was a teacher at the YMCA Training School in Springfield, Massachusetts. It is reported that the game of basketball came about as the result of a challenge from a teacher to his students to "pique the interest of an incorrigible class during the usually dull winter months."
