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 centuries, 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 launch bays 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 Launch Bay 2. Doctor Phlox, who found the sport similar to Octran fertility contests, showed that he had superior skill in shot accuracy. (ENT: "The Forge")

Most of the basketball outfits worn by the actors in "The Forge" were sold off on the It's A Wrap! sale and auction on eBay. They included the outfits worn by 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.
Basketball was referred to in a stage direction from the final draft script of TOS: "Miri"; one or more elaborate badminton "set-ups" (along with badminton gear and other equipment) was to have been visible in the window of Biggs' toy store.
In issue 17 of Star Trek: Ongoing, it is revealed that Leonard McCoy originally had dreams of being a professional basketball player when he grew up.
