The good ole days when refs used ladders.

 

"Naismith’s impromptu decision to mount the baskets on the railing is one of the few features of the first game to last to the present day. Originally, the game was played with nine people per side (as opposed to the modern five); they used a soccer ball—as the basketball had not, of course, yet been invented—and the players were not allowed to dribble the ball but instead had to be stationary when in possession of it. However, the goal remained 10 feet off the ground, even after the inconvenient peach baskets (which required a ladder to retrieve the ball when a shot was successful) were replaced with iron hoops."

That was an incredible shot. I wonder how many attempts were required to get it down pat?
