    Yeah, I saw that this morning. Pretty cool. For $30 I think I'll get one.

    There's a nice court near me where they put nice new rims but with no facility for nets - no loops or holes or anything.

    What's the purpose of the net?

    Never was important to me.

    I can't consistently hit 3s without a net
    The bottom and opposing side of the net shows me how deep I am, it's a visual assist to me
    No nets and double rims are 2 things that piss me off

    Neat idea. I would've never thought of it and I'm a huge hoop fan. Not sure why cats would take it with them tho. That seems weird. "lemme borrow your net, son"

    The net gets em wet.

    Splash johnson.

    You hit that coooogh sound...bruh..its art.



    Outside was where i learnrd to hoop tho. On netless rims or there was ripped net just hanging in the wind. Its all mental b. The net looks cool..but serves not real purpose. I used to love the sound of the chain net. You hit a couples 3s on that, dudes is ready to throw the hands and birds ready to top you.

    Go shoot free throws (I am assuming everyone here to be an 80%+ free throw shooter in non game conditions) outdoors on a rim with no net. You'll quickly get tired of chasing the ball every single time. The outdoor court I grew up on was raised like 6 inches off the grass (major ankle turn hazard) then the adjacent grass on one side sloped into a rain ditch so if the ball went out of bounds, caught a funny bounce off the rim, you had like 2 bounces out of bounds to catch it or it was rolling down the hill into that ditch into a pile of sewage, disease, bugs, dead body parts, whatever the **** else was down there. So if nothing else, the net slows the ball coming through the hoop and makes it drop more in control, more useful in some configurations than others, like on a cage court I could see how that wouldn't matter

    ^ thats true. Def helps that ball fall favorably.
