Details: Hone your jump shot in your spare moments or perform a backyard dunking drill with this Lifetime portable basketball system. Unlike in-ground basketball hoops–which are typically anchored in concrete–this portable hoop rolls on wheels, letting you position the basket support in your desired location, from the back patio to the middle of the cul-de-sac. All you have to do is fill the 27-gallon base with water or sand and play.
The Lifetime hoop adjusts from 7.5 to 10 feet in 6-inch increments.
Lifetime knows that younger players aren’t always ready for a 10-foot hoop, which is why the basket boasts a height-adjustment mechanism. The telescoping mechanism adjusts from 7.5 to 10 feet in 6-inch increments–no tools required–letting players of all ages and skill levels enjoy the game on their own terms.

The black rim is instead extremely stable, with 1/2-inch steel braces, welded steel net hooks, and a 50-gram net.
And players needn’t worry about the 44-inch backboard wearing dramatically over time thanks to the UV-protected, high-density polyethylene construction. This sturdy plastic material helps the board resist chipping and cracking while protecting the graphics from fading. Also equipped with a black, powder-coated, three-piece pole, the Lifetime system carries a five-year warranty.
