10 ways to knock out the basketball that stuck between the hoop and backboard
Gosh, I hate these moments
1. Use a long stick or pole
2. Throw another ball
My favorite one but you will need other methods if you are alone on the court.
3. Use a broomstick or mop
I wish I can carry a broomstick with me all the time.
4. Find a taller friend
5. Use a ladder
6. Inflate a balloon
Inflate a balloon and tie a long string to it. Gently guide the balloon towards the stuck ball and use the string to dislodge it.
7. Use a long rope
8. Use a long-range device
Take a device like a water hose or a leaf blower to direct a forceful stream of air toward the stuck ball, pushing it out.
9. Create vibrations
If the hoop or backboard is flexible, apply consistent and rhythmic pressure to create vibrations that may shake the ball loose.
