Hoops in the old Bronx

We take basketball hoop nets for granted, but in the old Bronx East Quadrant, Parkchester, the rims had leather straps for nets. The basketball would occasionally get stuck in there and had to be pushed up and out from below. Did anyone else have these strap nets in their playground?
