Basketball betting at its best
Despite its American reputation, basketball is far more popular than many would believe. It is one of the world’s most popular and widely viewed sports. Played in various leagues across the globe, the National Basketball Association (NBA) in the US is by far the largest organization. Placing a bet on basketball is often considered one of the easier forms of sports betting and can add the perfect amount of excitement to the already fast-paced, non-stop nature of basketball and all the action that happens on the court.
Since introduction during the 1960’s, basketball has become increasingly popular across the African continent. It’s widely played for recreation and dominates many school competitions. Famous African starts who made it to the international stage include Hakeem Abdul Olajuwon and Dikembe Mutombo. Olajuwon is a former NBA star who was born in Nigeria and played for the Houston Rockets. Mutombo was born in the DRC and successfully played in 18 NBA seasons.
