A basketball basket, also known as a hoop or rim, is the circular metal ring that is attached to a backboard and used in the game of basketball. The basket is typically 18 inches in diameter and is positioned 10 feet above the floor. The objective of the game is to shoot the basketball through the basket, scoring points for the team. In order to score, the ball must pass through the basket from above and not touch the rim or backboard. The basket is an essential component of the game of basketball and is used in both professional and recreational play.
