We heated it up with a cutting torch and hammered it back. If you don't have a cutting torch, try using a car jack. Put it in between the sides that are squished, and slowly jack it (no homo) until it starts to bend back into place. 01-14-2010, 03:16 PM #4. Doc Holliday.
The only real issue was the rim was bent. Sure I could have used it as an excuse for missing perfect swishes, but the idea of how to fix it was now in my head!

In 1976, a breakaway rim — with hinges that allow it to bend upward and downward with less injury risk to both the player and hoop itself — was first introduced by Arthur Ehrat.
So when running, start slow and accelerate over time as you reach the hoop; at the same time, run on the balls of your feet with your toes extended upwards. The two methods in conjunction will increase your momentum coming into the jump and your overall explosiveness which will improve your vertical. Practicing Dorsiflexion
