it's called a bank shot!?!?!?!?!?!
The basketball backboard is there to show ppl where to shot the ball to get it in.
It is called a "bank" shot.
A 'bank shot' is a shot that hits the backboard before going through the ring for a score or not going in to create a rebound situation.
Calling 'backboard' is a playground term in basketball. It is used in some games when a player is declaring that he is going to bank a shot into the goal using the backboard.
You can hit a shot off of the backboard and into the hoop, but you can't hit a shot off of air into the hoop. You can easily shoot more accurately with the backboard.
No its not it will be the other teams ball
