This is not a very Z List episode if you are already a Basketball fan  but I'm guessing, not many of us history nerds are... Steve Cross is tho! He explains the magic formula to inventing a world-popular sport. (And it is more than just a random number generator with a soap opera attached.. but not that much more!) Everything has a history, and this one is particularly amusing.
