For your basketball "goal", the best option at home is to use a plastic storage bin or laundry basket (pro tip: weigh it down with something. I put dumbbells in mine at home). A clean trash can would also make a nice basketball goal. Then make a box or circle around it with painters tape (or chalk or nylon webbing). The perimeter should be at least 2 feet away from the goal. I call this The Box. Then make a Free Throw Line. Optional, make a Lane from the box to the Free Throw line.
