lol it's funny how many people posted pix of puns.

Double rims suck. They bounce way too high off a miss.

Edit: @ Nash, they are way more firm if you ask me.

I don't even know exactly what "EuroLeague" is.

Who gives a F?

Is that the league Deron Will played in?

Or Josh Childress?

Or Steph Marbury?

There's too many damn leagues over there. All I know is the NBA has all of the world's best players except for 2 or 3 players on a Josh Childress level or older star has- beens like Stephon Marbury.

and sometimes more. Travelling is rampant in the NBA ever since Stern wanted to be more entertaining in late 80's or so.

Of course, breakaway double rims are not to be confused with the non-breakaway double rims seen on most playgrounds these days. The non-breakaways are the ones that will not welcome many favorable bounces. The ones in Euroleague still appear to provide some solid cushion.

When players see double rims in the USA (again, out on concrete) they associate horrible bounces with them because instead of containing a spring, the entire structure is bolted into the backboard. And, unlike the single non-breakaway rims of the previous generation, they cannot be bent by force and broken in or loosened up.

EuroLeague is Europe's version of the WNBA.

Yeah. The ones Euroleague uses are softer than the typical playground ones. They still make it a bit harder to score though. I remember seeing some study test they did, and it lowered shooting percentages by like 4 percentage points. It's not as bad as the ones at the playground though.
