Is it possible for your backboard to wear out and become less bouncy? I feel like the ball barely bounces off the backboard if I throw it at it. I can't throw an alley oop off the backboard because the ball just kinda drops down from the net and i feel like practicing on it will throw off my layups and shots on an actual net. Is there a way to see if it is bouncing correctly?

Yeah, throw the ball up for an alley oop, if it does not bounce back after 3 attempts, you must set fire to the hoop immediately, otherwise the basketball gods will look ill upon you and may smite your game.

I've seen what you're talking about. The backboard is probably loose somewhere so it absorbs the shock. If you can get a ratchet and try going back there and tightening all the bolts up.
