Basketball, as it’s known today, is the third-most popular sport in the U.S. Founded in 1891, the sport offered athletes an alternative to the injury-prone, outdoors game of football. Basketball has led to some of the most popular sneakers ever from Converse, adidas and Nike. Companies like New Balance, Jordan Brand and Under Armour have become important players in the performance-basketball space.
