Basketball Inventing the Jump Shot

He Invented Something Everyone Loves, but You?ve Probably Never Heard of Him. What Is It? Just Hit Play – FaithIt.com

Ignore the religious side of this if you must but I still think it's really cool that they can pinpoint this one guy as having invented the jump shot. It's such a simple thing to basketball players these days but in this man's time it was incredibly unique.

I thought it was pretty excellent that he said it used to be that everyone was on the floor at all times and never jumped on offense or defense. That just seems so strange to me :lol:.
