    Basketball timeline

    I was looking for something else and came across this interesting timeline of basketball geared toward professional basketball.

    National Basketball Association - History - ABA - NBL

    This has to be my favorite entry:

    1929Use of rope or chicken wire cage around the basketball court is discontinued.


    "There are five real good recruits in the state. We got three of them. One couldn’t get into school, and the other went to (the University of) Iowa...which is about the same thing." - Coach Johnny Orr

    Is this why the term "cagers" is used to describe basketball players?

    Could be. I never thought of that. I haven't heard that one for quite a few years.
