We recently purchased the 44 inch Portable Basketball System for our kids who are in love with basketball and they love it. Its perfect easy to adjust and light weight which makes it easy to move around in our drive way. The only complaint my husband had was how long it took to put together but once it was all together we all love it.

This basketball hoop is great for young children learning the game. But if your kids are serious about b-ball, it's weak. The backboard is rather flimsy, which makes for a very friendly rim (the ball doesn't bounce off as hard as a regulation backboard, resulting in more made baskets). My boys (6 & 8) love it right now, but if they ever get serious about playing, we'll get a higher quality system in a few years. It was fairly easy to put together. I did 90% by myself and had a couple neighbor boys help with a few of the final steps. I put 150 lbs of sand in/on it and the base is stable. But the backboard is not braced well enough to the pole. It's not bad at all for the price, but I can't give it higher than 3 stars because it is "Average/Ordinary." You get what you pay for.

    Comments about Lifetime Products 44 inch Portable Basketball System:

    This hoop was relatively easy to put together for a mom and 12-year old son. For a starter hoop, we got what we wanted - a hoop that will withstand an abundance of shooting from the inside and perimeter. Yet, there are 3 issues. First, the bars that connect the pole to the the top of of the base go on counter intuitively (the bent-end of the bar goes on the pole, not the base), and it happens to be on a part of the base that was tricky to assembly. So disassembling and reassembling that part was a pain. Second, when moving the whole hoop, the directions indicate lifting the pole of the hoop and leaning it backward over the base (to use the wheels on the back of the base). This is NOT a one person job! So, we crafted a little scooter to put on the front end of the front end that touches the ground so there can be wheels on the front and back. It's SO MUCH easier to move now! Finally, we can't see a way to simply adjust the height with a "broomstick" as the box says. Adjusting it requires a step ladder, unscrewing the knob with screw, putting the screw & knob in your pocket, moving the bar up/down, and then replacing the screw & knob. Unless you have three arms, this is tricky for one person. There are no words on the directions, so you have to figure some of all this out as you go. But, again, for a starter hoop it's worth the money.
