Amidst the excitement of purchasing a Goalrilla basketball goal, the overhang is something you may not initially think about. Overhang is the distance between the front of the post and the front of the backboard.  All Goalrilla goals have an overhang  of 2 1/2’ to 4’.  Typically, the deeper the overhang, the better, as the post is pushed back and removed from the playing area. The shorter the overhang, the more likely players are to run into the post during play. The heavy duty steel post on a Goalrilla doesn’t care if you’re the next Michael Jordan or a parent… Read more »

Growing up, there wasn’t a street in town that didn’t have some garages with basketball hoops. They were those white fan-shaped backboards attached with a web of 2×4 planks (which caught every wayward ball). Most had the shooting square outlined with bright orange tape – that is, if the elements hadn’t deteriorated the tape or faded it so badly you couldn’t really see it. Those basketball hoops were for the casual players – the groups of kids in pick-up games. The kids who were really serious about basketball were seldom seen playing – maybe practicing a few free throws. I… Read more »

Kids will be kids, but boy can it be aggravating sometimes! They play practical jokes on each other. (Why do they call them practical? The jokes usually aren’t.) Case in point: I remember when a friend had her Volkswagen Beetle picked up and wedged sideways into a spot where there was no way she could drive it out. It was great fun for the jokers, but not so much for the jokee. Likewise when at my first job (fast food); the bathroom key was attached to a great big piece of 2 x 4 lumber – the idea being no… Read more »

Every once in a while you come upon something that makes you say, “Wow. Just wow.” Bill Simmons is the writer of the “Sports Guy” column for a couple of ESPN products, a blogger, writer for Jimmy Kimmel Live and author of books, now numbering 2. It was his second book, The Book of Basketball, that made me go, “Wow. Just wow.” It’s sub-title is The NBA According to the Sports Guy. And that pretty much says it. With a dash – no, a pound – of humor, a passionate (and opinionated) viewpoint on basketball through the years and a… Read more »
