Playing on double rims at a playground, then going to an indoor court and playing a game is a blessing.

You become such a better shooter through playing on double rims. Have to really work on the height of your shot. More arc, etc.

What is true, is that the NBA ball is lighter and smaller than the Euroleague ball.

Why do you think all NBA players went so nuts a few years ago when Stern switched to the international ball?

Brilliant conclussion... are you trolling yourself?

Even if true, different court sizes demands different skills and that's it. Playing in a smaller court your passing, dribbling and movements with/without the ball will have to be more accurate due to defenders being closer. All of those are great skills to play basketball. If you only want to see athletism why don't you watch the sport that's called like that... athletism.

Trolling aside, it's funny how people still can't accept such consensual truths as the fact that the Euroleague (which shouldn't be confused with "any random league in Europe") is a very good professional basketball league (in fact the second best after the NBA) or that genius transcends eras.

I understand Kobe/LeBron debates, because there is something to argue about... but virtually anyone who actually knows the game, be it analysts, GMs, players, coaches, scouts, GMS, commentators or relatively unbiased fans would agree with those simple concepts.

Double rims most influential difference is in FTs in my opinion. NBA players who are average FT shooters e.g. LeBron use the front of the rim to bounce the ball in and make free throws. But if you do it on a double rim the ball will just bounce off.
