c. When you start a dribble after (1) receiving the ball in a standing position or (2) stopping legally, the ball must be out of the player`s hand before the rotating foot is lifted off the ground. The rulebook allowed only one step after „collecting,“ but NBA umpires had long been instructed to allow two. To stop, players can use a single-account stop („Jump Stop“) or a two-account stop („Stride Stop“). In the first case, both feet touch the ground at the same time, while in the second case, one foot first touches the ground, and then the other foot lands. In both cases, the most important thing is to keep the body balanced and land with proper posture. d. If a player who has the ball in his possession lifts his rotating foot off the ground, he must pass or shoot before his rotating foot returns to the ground. If he drops the ball in the air, he may not be the first to touch the ball. e. A player who falls to the ground while holding the ball or who stops cannot take advantage by sliding. Make sure the passes are sharp and the receivers come to the ball and jump. Check their triple threat situation.
Players must sprint to the opposite line to condition themselves. When that happened, it was as if a thousand grumpy old NBA fans had been rehabilitated in a thousand sports bars. „You see!“ I could hear an imaginary Homer Simpson saying. „I told you. They abandoned the rules years ago. Whatever technique they use to stop when they stop with the ball in hand, the player usually has to look at the basket and also need to know what his rotating foot is. Hehe, yes, I also watch European basketball. And there, it would certainly be a trip.
But I wanted to know the exact NBA rule, which is not clear to me as it is written. Even if I know that sometimes the NBA does not respect its own rules (crab dribbles, no pickup, etc…) Hats off to the league. They just didn`t need to update their rulebook. Doing nothing was an absolute option – they have all the cards in hand. But they did what I think is undeniably right. They put their rules and their referees on the same page. Nicely played. This is leadership, and in her own way, she was brave. I don`t have a dog in this fight.
(I play basketball expecting to take a step. I watch the NBA wait for two. That`s one of the countless differences between my game and the NBA, and I agree with that.) But I know in my heart that the rules should be consistent with what the referees say. And I know that no one involved in the management of the NBA seemed to think they were allowing even one step. b. A player who receives the ball as it progresses or after completing a dribble can take two steps to stop, pass the ball or shoot. A player who receives the ball as he goes forward must release the ball to start his dribble before his second step. The first stage occurs when one or both feet touch the ground after taking control of the ball.
The second stage takes place after the first stage, when the other foot touches the ground or both feet touch the ground at the same time. A player who stops in the first stage, when both feet are on the ground or touch the ground at the same time, can rotate with each foot as the pivot point. If he jumps with both feet, he must release the ball before one of the two feet touches the ground. A player who lands first with one foot can only rotate with that foot. A progressive player who jumps one foot on the first step can land with both feet at the same time for the second stage. In this situation, the player must not rotate with one foot and if one or both feet leave the ground, the ball must be released before one of the two returns to the ground. At a stop in one count, body weight should be evenly distributed over both legs, and the feet should land at the same time. Is it the second count immediately when „both feet touch the ground at the same time“ (so there is no account) or do I have to add the part „After counting one“ (and a first step is legal before a jump stop)? Although I`m not talking about something like a „collection stage“.
While the comments on ESPN.com are representative, this rule change is not taken lightly. A small minority is positive about change. But most of the answers are more like this: tomjam7777 rules? Does the NBA have rules? Simple solution – make dribbling optional. The NBA is no longer basketball!!! The jump stop („an account“) can be preferred in particular because it gives the player with the ball the choice between a rotating foot. In the case of a two-count stop, the foot landed first must be the rotating foot. However, if the player turns to the basket while catching the ball, a gradual stop („two counters“) may be preferable because it is faster than stopping and panning. Most importantly, players learn and master both techniques. Inisfree19 Let`s face it and call this new rule by its real name: „The Lebron Rule“. Since he is already taking three steps and lowering his shoulder, is he allowed to take four steps now? Receivers move to the ball and receive it with a jump stop, briefly maintain the triple threat position, then make the pass to the next player in the opposite line, follow the pass and enter the opposite line.
Alternatively, at a two-point stop, the weight is first concentrated on the first foot that lands, with the knee bent to stop the forward swing. When the other foot touches the ground, the weight is transferred so that it is evenly between the two feet. Therefore, the rules certainly needed to be changed. Here are, in their entirety, the NBA`s new rules of travel. Section „b“ is where the action is: The most common mistake when players stop is a lack of balance. Basically, this happens because players don`t bend their legs (or legs) enough when they stop, they don`t distribute their body weight properly, or they don`t spread their legs to maintain a basic basketball posture. It`s the result of that surprising moment in early spring when the guy who oversees NBA officials told me that umpires are instructed to ignore the rulebook when they call on a trip. coolhippie51 Once again, the NBA proved that this is more of a show than a product of basketball. They should consider changing their name to WWB as they apply the rules at will to get a result they want.
In Dwight Howard`s last thread, there was a post about jumping stop after a dribble and a first step. The way I learned the game is that a jump stop on two feet counts as two stages and is a travel injury if performed after a first step. So I took a look at the official rules (section XIV b), but it is not clear to me. NBA rules do not consider „collecting“ the ball as a dribble. When a player tries to „recover“ the ball or pick up his dribble, the „two-step“ rule does not begin until the ball has been completely picked up. The travel rule in the NBA rulebook has changed profoundly. The one-step crowd insists that the rules have always said one thing, and while it`s hard to call perfect, it`s basketball, and it`s a standard you should aim for now and forever. Change it at your own risk. About 60% of their weight should be on the front of their foot, with the heels lifting slightly.
Often, however, players transfer too much weight to the front of the foot, causing them to fall (or kick) forward. An offensive player in his short forehead below the line of extended free throws cannot dribble with his back or side to the basket for more than five seconds. rogersxx1 And for those who say the game is going to be ruined, it`s too late. f. A player attempting a field goal may not be the first to touch the ball if he does not touch the backboard, basket ring or another player. An offensive player cannot leave the ground playing area on the finish line in the frontcourt to put on a screen. A team cannot be in possession of a ball in its backcourt for more than 8 consecutive seconds.
