Basketball is a human sport, though it is occasionally played by Transformers. It involves a large amount of dribbling, dunking and occasionally fouling. The aim is to pass a spherical object through an elevated hoop to score.
Miko refereed a one-on-one basketball match between Bulkhead and Bumblebee. Bulkhead scored the first point, but when Bumblebee went to dunk the ball, he froze and experienced a flashback to an earlier space bridge explosion — a symptom of his possession by Megatron. When Bulkhead snapped him out of it, he threw the ball at his comrade's head, causing Miko to announce he'd committed a foul.
