    Actually it has proven to be very accurate, or so I hear.

    I usually go there for most information and they have never steered me wrong.

    Didn't the Aztecs chop off heads and play a form of basketball with them?

    I don't think that they dribbled- strictly a passing game.

    Are you talking about post 1776? Or America in general?

    Yeah, the Mayans did play a game that was a mix of soccer and basketball (or rollerball without the skates). Up north, in what is canada today, they played bandy.
