Basketball is an Atari 2600 video game written by Alan Miller and published by Atari, Inc. in 1979. The cartridge presents a simple game of one-on-one basketball playable by one or two players, one of the few early Atari 2600 titles to have a single-player mode with an AI-controlled opponent. Miller wrote a version of Basketball for the Atari 8-bit family with improved graphics, published in 1979. That same year an arcade version similar to the computer port was released by Atari, but in black and white. The arcade game was written by Chris Downend.
