Basketball is sport that’s easy for new fans to follow. However, there’s quite a bit of basketball jargon that can be difficult for beginners to pick up or keep up-to-date with.

The idea of hoopdictionary.com is to streamline the process of learning basketball terms, and serve as a hub of hoop lingo that can be used as a reference for fans and get everyone clued in without having to search for each individual term among various blogs and forums.

By giving a brief definition and background of each term along with one or more gifs to display the terms in action, we hope to make the process of learning as straightforward as possible.
