Model 71546 is considered the nicest of the 44” backboard line. It includes a steel frame around the perimeter that provides better stability than the plastic fusion framed boards. The one-handed
adjustment mechanism makes it easy to quickly change the height. The conservative backboard graphic colors are a favorite for customers who don’t want the hoop to stand out too much. Playing
basketball is a great way to exercise and get outdoors. Put down the game controllers and pick up the basketball with this Lifetime portable goal.
