A mishap made by Google is trending this Tuesday as the site has credited LaVar Ball as the founder of the NBA.

The real founder of basketball was Dr. James Naismith in the late 19th century. Later, the Basketball Association of America and the national Basketball League merged to form the NBA back in 1949.

The error has since been corrected, but fans are still sharing screenshots of the fail. Check it out below.
