What's the rule? I kind of thought the ball had to hit rim lest it be a pass to yourself or traveling or something

Can someone explain how that's not traveling?
2013-01-10 12:52:47 PM  
Its not traveling because when he regained possession he was in the air. Had he landed instead of dunking, it would have been called traveling.

Are you allowed to throw the ball off the backboard, grab your own rebound and dunk it without landing? -- Blaise Bernie's answer: Yes. Under the traveling rule, a player who attempts a shot or pass may not be the first to touch the ball unless it touches the backboard, rim or another player. Therefore, a player can intentionally pass the ball to himself off the backboard or rim.

I'm sorry, subby, I thought you said you had a Dunk of the Year candidate. I don't see Sam Thompson in that video...

Really? At best that could be Dunk of the Week.

Woohoo!  Go Aztecs!

Also, worst defense of the year.

I don't buy atrocious defense for dunk of the year candidates.

And the selfish prick would have been benched if I were coaching.

/I weren't

Maybe it's 'cos I'm an old white guy, but I'd much rather see a 3-pointer from 30 feet away.

Dunks? Meh.
