  • Hone your jumpshot in your spare moments or perform a backyard dunking drill with the Lifetime 71799 in-ground
    basketball goal. Designed for permanent installations in cemented driveways, the 71799 includes such features as a
    Shatter Guard backboard, a spring-back Slam-It Rim, and an Action Grip pole mechanism for speedy height changes.

    The goal's sturdiness stems from the cement-ready base, which is more rigid and takes up less space than portable
    basketball goals (it does require roughly 72 hours of cement drying time, however). The clear 50-inch Shatter Guard
    backboard, meanwhile, is made of Makrolon polycarbonate, which is virtually unbreakable and 30 times stronger than
    acrylic. As a result, broken backboards are a thing of the past, even from errant rocks and other non-basketball
    threats. In addition, the board offers a UV coating that prevents yellowing over time, a high-impact polyethylene frame,
    and screen-printed inks for fade-resistant color.

    Lifetime knows that dunking and above-the-rim play are a huge part of modern basketball, which is why the 71799 also
    comes with both a height adjustment mechanism and a spring-back rim. The three-piece, 3.5-inch Action Grip pole includes
    counter-balance springs that make it easy to raise or lower the rim from 7-1/2 to 10 feet in 6-inch increments without
    requiring a broomstick, crank, or other tool. Thanks to the Action Grip technology, players of all ages and skill levels
    can enjoy the game on their own terms, while aspiring dunkers can gradually raise the level 6 inches at a time as their
    vertical improves. The orange Slam-It Rim, meanwhile, is designed specifically for players who like to throw down. The
    orange solid-steel rim features double-compression springs that give way during dunks to protect the player, then spring
    back once released. The rim is also supported by 1/2-inch braces, with welded-steel net hooks and an all-weather nylon
    net.

    The 71799, which is protected by a powder-coated, weather-resistant finish, comes with a five-year warranty.

    Amazon.com Basketball System Buying Guide
    With the high-quality construction of many portable basketball systems, turning your driveway into a basketball court
    can be as simple as hooking up your garden hose. But while a portable system may ultimately be your best choice, there
    are reasons you may want to consider an in-ground or wall-mount system before you decide.

    In-Ground Systems
    In-ground systems are permanently cemented into the ground--either via a bolt mounting kit or directly into the
    ground--and are generally more rigid and take up less space than portables. In-ground systems often require that you
    hire a professional to complete the task, but when the cement dries you'll have a hoop that can take punishing dunks
    with ease.

    Many in-ground systems are height-adjustable, include removable post features that let you take the system down for
    off-season storage, and feature heavy-duty break-away rims. You'll also want to research the adjustable mechanisms on
    the systems, as there are several types to choose from. Some feature a counter-balance spring that lets you perform
    easy, one-hand adjustments while others may feature a sturdy, pneumatic system.

    Wall-Mount Systems
    Wall-mount systems can be mounted to the side of a house, a tall retaining wall, or a garage. Generally sturdier than
    portables, wall-mounts have the added advantage of optimizing your existing ground space for the court, since you won't
    take any space up with the base or pole. Not all systems include the necessary hardware, so make certain you add a
    mounting kit to your list.

    Portable Systems
    Portable systems require minimal installation and offer ultimate convenience. These systems generally feature a base
    that can be filled with sand or water to stabilize them and include wheels for portability. Although they are not as
    sturdy as in-ground or wall-mounted hoops, portables are simple to set up and can often be folded for convenient
    storage.

    Backboard Considerations
    Regardless of which system you choose, you'll want to brush up on Backboards 101. Most residential systems feature
    backboards made of acrylic, fiberglass, graphite, or various other composite materials. While clear acrylic gives the
    professional look and feel of glass, it is not as rigid as fiberglass or graphite. Some systems may offer steel or
    aluminum backboards, which are virtually vandal resistant, but don't offer the true rebounding action.

    The regulation size of an NBA backboard is 72 inches wide and 42 inches high. Most portable hoops are 42 or 44 inches
    wide and 36 inches tall. In-ground systems tend to be a bit larger, with 54-inch and 60-inch widths being the most
    popular. While rectangular shaped backboards provide more bank shot opportunities, they are generally more expensive
    than the streamlined fan-shaped board.
