    Meet GRIND Basketball: the world’s most affordable basketball shooting machine

    Founded by a former high school basketball star, GRIND is aiming to be the Peloton of basketball...and just pitched Shark Tank to help get there.

    As far as founding stories go, GRIND Basketball fits in the “solve my own problem” camp. Thomas Fields — the startup’s founder — was a high school basketball star. While recovering from ACL surgery, he tried to get practice shots up in the school gym. Fields arrived at 5am and the coach never showed to set up the shooting machine.

    “I asked myself ‘why can’t I bring my own machine?’” Fields tells The Hustle in a conversation. “Not long after, I started down the road to create the most affordable and portable basketball machine.”

    Basketball shooting machines are a staple for aspiring players


    However, the top sellers in the space are more B2B-focussed businesses, with schools and professional sports organizations as key clients. Practically, what this means is that the machines are too big and expensive for the average consumer:

    There’s something down to earth by having a simple basketball hoop on your garage.
