The most common story I've heard for the invention of hockey is it being started by the British, and ice hockey being originated by British soldiers stationed in Canada, so it's not unfounded to say it's British. Other stories involve it starting as a Scottish game, others say theres evidence of it being played in Egypt centuries ago.
Basketball was invented by a Canadian (Naismith) in order to give athletes something to stay in shape during the winter. Naismith studied at Mcgill but the game was first played in America. I personally wouldn't say its American or Canadian but it is more American I guess.
And Eva get informed bud, hockey is not British at all regardless of how you swing it. Hockey is Canadian through and through nice try though.
The origins of hockey aren't just Canadian.
