How basketball is the sport that most originated in America and we don’t play the national anthem at the start of games?
Football was inspired by rugby or lacross mostly if I remember correctly. And baseball takes most of it’s inspiration from cricket.
Yes, I know the other sports were officially created earlier than basketball for the most part, but I’m talking about originality of the sport in general. If someone can show me a largely known inspiration to basketball from another country, I would be glad to see it.
