Naismith Trophy
The Naismith Trophy is a trophy awarded to the men's champion of the FIBA Basketball World Cup, and is named in honor of basketball's inventor, James Naismith. The trophy was first awarded to the winner of the 1967 FIBA World Championship. The current version of the trophy was awarded for the first time at the 2019 FIBA Basketball World Cup.

Finally, in 1965, FIBA received a US$1,000 donation and commissioned a trophy. The trophy was introduced at the 1967 tournament, and was awarded to the Soviet Union, which won the first of their three FIBA World Championship titles at the tournament. The original trophy was remodeled, and a new, updated trophy was introduced for the 1998 FIBA World Championship. The original trophy now sits at the Pedro Ferrándiz Foundation in Spain. The new Naismith Trophy was forged by Goldsmi ...

Basketball
Basketball is a team sport in which two teams, most commonly of five players each, opposing one another on a rectangular court, compete with the primary objective of shooting a basketball (approximately in diameter) through the defender's hoop (a basket in diameter mounted high to a backboard at each end of the court, while preventing the opposing team from shooting through their own hoop. A field goal is worth two points, unless made from behind the three-point line, when it is worth three. After a foul, timed play stops and the player fouled or designated to shoot a technical foul is given one, two or three one-point free throws. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins, but if regulation play expires with the score tied, an additional period of play (overtime) is mandated. Players advance the ball by bouncing it while walking or running (dribbling) or by passing it to a teammate, both of which require considerable skill. On offense, players may use a v ...
