Google Doodle Honors Basketball Inventor's Anniversary

Happy Anniversary, basketball!! Google honored James Naismeth, the man who invented basketball back in 1890, with his very own animated Google Doodle today!

We've attached a radio interview from 1939 (whoa!) where he described everything you need to know about the dawn of round ball. If you didn't already know this stuff don't worry, we won't tell. Just make sure you get this info before you're exposed!
