A man by the name of Dr. James Nasismith creates an indoor game at the local YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts for the athletic distraction of rowdy students. The game involved two peach baskets and a round ball. We know that game today as basketball.

Imagine they still used peach baskets? How odd would that look seeing Lebron and Kobe throwing down on wooden hoops that you couldn't see through.

"Dwight has to leave the game with what is being diagnosed as, 'Splinters'".

Respect for Dr. Nasismith! Could you imagine how much money he'd have today if he got paid for his invention?
