I searched for a portable basketball hoop between $200-$300, and found this one, priced right at $250. I'm 25 years old and have been playing basketball most my life, I wanted a hoop for my new house, so I could practice in the driveway. From my searches, I've found that a 52" backboard is pretty large for this price, so I scooped it up. I did ship to store for free, and it was there in like 3-4 days, and I drove it home. I spent about 4 hours piecing this thing together by myself. Tools used: socket wrench and hammer. Some light tapping on the bolts got them in the holes they needed to go in. Put some water in the base and was good to go. Lay-ups, dunks, long shots, all seemed to bounce good for me, I have no issues with the material, or the mechanics in raising/lowering the backboard. The only negative comment I can say, is that the backboard was a little scuffed up when I took the plastic wrapping off at the end. This is something I should have checked when I pulled it out of the box, so i'm not sure if i caused them, or if it came that way. But I'm not gonna take it apart at this point, it works fine. All in all, getting this basketball hoop for the price, I can't complain.

This is a morning after review. So the experience is fresh in my mind. When we opened the box, I wasn't overwhelmed by what was there. I didn't think I would spend as much time as others but i did. Before I get to assembly, I will review the final product. My wife and kids wanted a hoop for around $100, but I wanted something that would hold up well for a few years and played as close a possible to a regular court as we could get. Walmart online has the best prices I could find, but I wanted to see one of the lifetime hoops in person. At Walmart I couldn't see much so I went to another store that had a really nice one on sale for $319 down from six hundred. The only problem is my kids and wife were too impatient wait, so I went to Walmart to see the best one they had in stock. It was this court, and for $250 and available a was coaxed into buying it. Fully put together, I have to say I think it is a decent court. The rim is really a nice quality and the backboard, while thin, handles bank shots well. It does move a little, but not enough to affect a shot. Also, balls will not fly off of it, so you can get the benefit of the doubt at times. This is especially good in a driveway as well. The metal poll is thick, sturdy, and looks nice. We filled it up with water, and you can tell it is a few steps above the ones for a hundred -although in all honesty, my kids like those courts as well, and my neighbors court gets plenty of use as well. In a nutshell, it is worth the money. I looked at the lifetime hoops and they seem nice as well, but cost more. I do think it is easier to adjust the lifetime ones, but my youngest can shoot ten feet, so i don't see it being adjusted a lot. I kind of think i did something wrong while putting it together, because i can't get the pin out. The one thing I can't report on is how it handles dunking. This is not an above the rim house!!! On to the fun part, assembly. I started at ten in the morning. I couldn't see where it would take more than a couple hours. The instructions were decent enough, and the amount of parts didn't look overwhelming. Six hours later I was done, and wondering what took so long. However, it is easy to use a wrong part here or there and had to roe something. I think the most important advice anyone good give about this assembly is that once you pound the poles together, you are stuck with it, so if you didn't align them properly, it will mess everything else up later, and back to the store you go. So take your time, and make sure you put the top, middle, and bottom pools together in the proper order to spec. Use a cheap piece of wood to pound them together. Used a crayon to mark the pole to the level you need to pound them together. ONce aligned, this process is easy. I am not a handy man, but with the help of one of my kids, we got it together. It was actually nice spending the day together working on something. My kids are very happy and so am I.

I was somewhat skeptical since this was a "new" product that Walmart was offering and so there were no reviews to read and consider. We did a fair amount of online and store shopping and decided on this system due to the Spalding name, the price, overall features and the angled pole. It seemed very professional looking at a price that fit our range. It arrived at our local store via the FREE Ship-to-Store option, which saved us about $120 in freight over other stores. The box was virtually undamaged and came with all of the parts and accessories in tact. Assembly took a bit longer than I anticipated, even after reading many basketball system assembly reviews. If you take your time and really try and do it right, you'd better plan on about 6-8 hours to assemble. We made it a family project with my 7 and 9 year old sons helping as well as my 81 year old Father-in-Law. It was a great family activity that was mostly done on a wonderful 65 degree early Spring day. We used sand to fill the base and that could of been made a lot easier by placing the fill plug on the end of the base instead of the top. Since you really only have to do it once, it was okay. My only complaint is that the height adjustment system is not as easy as other more costly units, but I guess you can't have everything for $250. Well, so far-so good. We'll see how it hold up over the coming years. I would recommend this system over any other one we considered in the $190-$300 range. Happy playing!
