The crew of Enterprise playing a game

Basketball was a sport developed on Earth during the 19th century. It involved two teams competing against each other by attempting to get a ball in a basket as many times as possible within the game's time limit.

During the 20th and 21st century, basketball was played as a sport for fun or could be played professionally, in a league. Professional games were often televised and shown in bars. (VOY: "11:59")

Basketball was still played in the 22nd century. One of the shuttlebays on Enterprise could be converted into a single-sided basketball court. In 2154, the starship's senior staff (with the exception of Commander T'Pol) played a game of basketball in Shuttlebay 2. Doctor Phlox, who found the sport similar to Octran fertility contests, showed that he had superior skill in shot accuracy. (ENT: "The Forge")

The basketball outfits worn by the actors in "The Forge" were sold off on the It's A Wrap! sale and auction on eBay: Connor Trinneer, [1] Dominic Keating, [2] Linda Park, [3] and John Billingsley. [4]
TNG guest star James Worthy played professional basketball from 1982-94 for the Los Angeles Lakers, and is a member of the Basketball Hall of Fame.
