I love seeing it when a kid wants or needs something and then goes about getting it!
This young man, and I think it was a kid who put this up, lives way out in the rural boonies, has no school nearby with a basketball court, no church nearby that might have a facility, and homes all around without driveways or patios that might house a backboard and hoop bought at the store. Maybe they didn't have money to get one. But this kid was undeterred!
That bucket is installed with only a couple of nails.
The top of the "hoop" is only 8' high. He couldn't put it any higher because there would be no backboard.
