So I noticed while Down Under that they had a different type of basketball hoops going on. Not all hoops were like this but I did notice some different looking ones. And the pole with the basket on top of it actually might maybe be from New Zealand. But that's pretty much the same place right? Australia... New Zealand... sounds the same to me atleast...
Australian perspective: the tall ring on a stick is a net ball ring. Its a bizarre game kinda cross between Euro handball and basketball. Its played by girls. Its totally non contact but you cant run when you got the ball so if you ever wonder why some Aussie girls stomp you may have your answer.
The double horizontal ring looks like an urban drug induced ring that could be any city in the world.
American perspective: I guess since they don't need a backboard for there hoop you could say that they are better at basketball then us. I guess a backboard is kinda sissy now that I think about it. Now I look at American Basketball and think to myself that it's a girls sport. If you want to play a man's version head Down Under you sissy little Americans.
The sideways basketball is kinda hard to discuss because I'm not sure if its art or a actual hoop that has a purpose. Remember when MTV had that Rock N Jock basketball game every year or whatever? Reminds me of that...
