Presumably hardwood. The real question is what did he write on it, and did the owner of the gymnasium make him clean it off?

Raising the basket would not assist short people any more than where the basket is now if the guys guarding them are a foot plus taller than they are.

Exactly. They should lower the basket to 5 feet. That way, your average white man could dunk and block shots.
