Behind the Clang on New York Basketball Courts

by

There’s an interesting aritcle “Handmade Hoops Put Clang Into New York Courts” in The New York Times, Sunday May 30.

The rims are handmade by NYC’s blacksmith shop. The rims are not all the same. “There are minor differences,” said the blacksmith John Fitzgerald who is in charge of making the rims. “It’s like no snowflakes are exactly the same.”
