James Naismith's Rules Of Basketball Will Be Shown In March

James Naismith's "Basket Ball" rules will be available to see at Kansas City's Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art during March Madness.


In 1891, Naismith tacked his 13 rules for basketball on a bulletin board and, now 120 years later, the public will have its first chance to see them. The exhibit opens March 5th.


David Booth purchased the rules at a Sotheby's Auction last year for over $4 million.
