My previous comment turns out to be a case of "History is only what you remember." I picked up a book on history of basketball at the library. I shoulda got the book first. Almost everything I remembered is incorrect. But the Trotters did beat the pro basketball champs several times and had a rivalry with the Minnesota/LA Lakers.

The reason Naismith was given the assignment was actually to reduce the crime rate in town. In the late 19th C and early 20th, the same athletes played all sports. There was very little specialization. There was no winter team sport between end of football and start of baseball. Trapped by snow from team sports and fed by alcohol, the players had a lot of time to get in trouble. So they did. They needed supervision, and basketball provided it. Few colleges had large gyms. YMCAs had large gyms with elevated running tracks 10 feet off the floor and the baskets were nailed to them. It was standard in Ys. The backboards kept the spectators on the track from interfering with the ball. A cage was built around the court to keep the spectators from interfering. The Trotters could get serious, defeating NBA teams in the 50s and 60s, including the NBA champions. Featured on WHAT Interrobang. LF
