  -> Naturellement, mais si je considère une question, c'est déjà du temps de perdu si c'est pour aider quelqu'un qui n'a pas de problèmes de traduction, mais est simplement trop paresseux...

agree  1964: I think such simple questions may be founn in any "pocket" dictionary and asking such questions may be deemed as a kind of abuse. Non professional

basketball / ballon-panier


Explanation:
French-language purists have suggested the term ballon-panier (literally ball-basket) but basketball is more commonly used.

Au Canada, le terme ballon-panier a été proposé pour remplacer le terme basketball, qui s'est néanmoins implanté dans l'usage et qui est beaucoup plus fréquent que ballon-panier.
