If you are looking for a re-creation of the btaaesbkll game of your past, forget it. When this game was originally sold, it had metal levers that could be adjusted to make the ball shoot more accurately. This model has hard plastic levers which have no give in them and makes it really hard to be accurate with your shot. In fact, it is almost impossible to make a shot from the free throw line because the ball consistently hits the lower part of the front of the rim. The plastic levers also will fall out if you move the playing floor of the game for any reason. I was a big fan of the old version when I was a kid and played it for hours at a time but bought this one for my grandson and we both got so annoyed because you couldn’t score any points that he quit wanting to play it. I finally had to put something underneath the backboards to be able to hit a shot once in a while. Don’t waste your money on this!! If you can find an older version with the metal levers you would be better off.
