What is the diameter of a basketball hoop?

I need the measurement of the hoop itself, not how high it is.

The diameter of a basketball hoop is 17 inches, an interesting fact most people do not know is you can actually fit two basketballs through a hoop at the same time. Most people think the ball is only slightly smaller than the hoop but this is not the case at all.

In the NBA, it's 18 inches, however there are basketball hoops NOT used by professionals that measure 17 inches in diameter.

the total measurement of the metal basketball rim is about 18 inches across the opening. the regulation NBA basketball is about 9 inches in diameter or about 30 inches in circumstance.
