The Lifetime 44 In. Pro Court Portable Basketball Hoop lets you take your basketball game anywhere you want! You can put this hoop virtually anywhere , for example, driveway, patio or cul-de-sac and pick up a game with your friends and neighbors.  This Lifetime portable system is height-adjustable from 7.5 ft. to regulation 10 ft. height.  Made from patented high-density polyethylene plastic, the 1221 basketball goal is durable and resistant to chipping and cracking. Constructed of powder-coated steel, this rugged system does not rust.

The Lifetime 1221 Portable Basketball System with 44-Inch Backboard is easy to setup and assemble. It may take 2 people for the assembly. You can fill in sand or water in the base and also move it easily on its wheels. This makes a good beginner hoop for kids.

However, some reviewers find the backboard to be flimsy and deadening, as the ball does not bounce very well from the backboard. Also it is not easy to adjust the height and takes some effort.

Overall, the Lifetime 1221 Portable Basketball System with 44-Inch Backboard is an affordable and decent hoop for beginners.
