I still remember being introduced to basketball in gym class way back around 3rd grade or so. The ball was enormous and impossibly heavy. The hoops had a special little kid mode where they dropped down an extra 4 feet or so but even with that I could barely get the ball to hit the bottom of the net as it dangled a foot out of my reach. I liked it much more when I got older and could actually land a shot. I begged my parents for a hoop at our house and they promised to attach one to the garage that never got built.
