I'm not sure how the net first came into the game but I've heard a couple good reasons for it which I'll share: 1. It helps determine if a shot was made. You know the term, "nothin but net" If there was no net and a ref didn't have a good view then it might look like an "airball" 2. The net also substantially slows down the ball coming through the hoop to avoid it from screamin through and off the court or hitting a player below the basket.
a basketball net is the net hanging from the bottom of the rim on the basketball hoop
There are little u shaped hooks that are bent to hold the net
On a standard basketball net, the rim is attached perpendicularly to the backboard, which is usually white (or clear) in colour.
When basketball was first found, they used a laundry basket as a goal. then the rim was invented, then someone just had the idea to make a net out of string. By the time u knew it, it was known as a net.
10 ft high
The rim is 10 feet from the floor
Professional height is 10 feet at the rim.
on the rim, there should be little curly things. take the widest (top) part of the net and thread a net material through each of the curly things. sorry i dont have any more info :(
Every standard basketball net has a rim that is 10 feet from the floor, however some nets can be lowered.
== == When someone shoots the basketball and it goes through the net with out touching the rim
The radius of a standard rim on a basketball net is 22.5cm, making the diameter 45cm.
There are no baskets in basketball. The name was derived from the original game where peach baskets were hung on the wall and players shot the ball into them. Today we have a rim and a net. Without the rim and net there would be nothing to shoot at.
The rim is the circular hoop attached perpendicularly to the backboard. The rim is usually painted orange and is made of iron. When the game first originated, a basket was used instead of a rim, which is why it is called 'basketball'.
you use thin rope..and make chain link knots...and then stick it on the rim
The rim for a basketball court is positioned exactly 10 feet off the ground.
First, you need a new net. To get one, go to your local sporting goods store. Then, take a ladder (unless your hoop is adjusted to be short) and go to the rung where you can reach the rim. There should be 6 or 8 spots where parts of the net are connected on the rim. Just cut the old net down. Then, take each part of the net and connect each one onto the 6 or 8 spots on the rim.
Ten feet from the floor to the rim (this is true for high school, college and NBA).
yes it doesThe presence of a basketball net improves freethrow accuracy for a number of reasons. First it improves the depth perception of the shooter better enabling them to see the center of the rim. Second the net acts as a weight on the rim and "softens" the rim so that the basketball has a better chance of going through when it hits rim. Lastly, in outdoor games, the net can act as a gauge on how strong the wind may be blowing which definitely affects your shot.
As long as you have a rim and a net.
There is no such thing. That is probably just a term for a hook shot that hits the rim and bounces in the basket.
because if someone gets a swish then they would know if they missed it because the noise hitting the net would make a swishing sound.
Depending on the quality, type, and brand of net you want...they can range from anywhere between $120-$800. The average net for have on the side of your house just for children to play around, will usually cost about $200.
An official, NBA-approved basketball net may be anywhere between 15" to 18" long. Obviously, it must also go around the rim of the hoop. An official basketball hoop is 18" in diameter; thus, the net must also be 18" in diameter at its widest point.
The basketball rim is ten feet from the ground.
