Basketball was a sports game played by two teams. It involves each team trying to throw an orange ball through one of two hoops, one on each side of the court. The winner is the one who scores the most baskets.
The Harlem Globetrotters were a notable basketball team who played against Professor Farnsworth Atomic Supermen. The Supermen almost won, though due to time lapses in space, they became confused and the Globetrotters took advantage of this in order to win the game. During the game, one of the Supermen, Arachneon, was killed.
