There are many board games made to simulate certain sports, especially baseball and football. These games have existed nearly as long as the actual sports themselves. For some reason, basketball simulation games are not as common. Warren Paper Products produced a cardboard example sometime in the middle of the 20th century. Whitman purchased the rights to produce it at some point afterward and the game was made until the mid-1970s, at least. It uses a central spinner to determine the outcome of each players shot for the hoop.
