Re: Is dribbling the ball over your head carrying?

i think it really depends on how he brought the ball down, or how his hand changed the ball's movement

you see ppl do it all the time when they lounge down and try a crossover

this is basics. you're not allowed to dribble the ball over your shoulders, nevermind your head. they teach this at any basketball teaching program for kids. just like how you're not allowed to catch your own airball because it's a travel.

As long as your hand stays on top of the ball you can dribble it to the moon.

that's not true. if you played organized basketball you would know so. dribbling over the shoulder, nevermind the head, is illegal, even if you have your hand on top of the ball.

i don't have links, i just know this from playing ball. it's the same rules in all the leagues i play and nobody ever dribbled the ball over their shoulder in games. it's hardly mentioned in general basketball rules so it's something you learn from playing organized basketball at some point in your life.

edit: http://www.ehow.com/video_2366713_yo...e-dribble.html

found a link. makes you feel like a noob watching that video but it says dribbling the ball too high is considered double dribble.

i shouoldn't have to provide a link. this is something ball players should know.

yeah i don't think a video from ehow.com on youth basketball is what we're looking for here.

i think the others are right, as long as you keep your hand over the ball and you don't jump, it is fine.

Re: Is dribbling the ball over your head carrying?

In college you aren't usually allowed to make an excessively high dribble.In the NBA you can dribble it any way you like so long as you don't carry the ball.That is to say you have to keep your hand on top of the ball.He was probably called for carrying the ball.

Where exactly have you been playing to not know such a basic rule? A player can dribble over his/her shoulders and head as long as the dribble is not discontinued. Jason Williams used to high dribble all the time.

Re: Is dribbling the ball over your head carrying?

The NBA rulebook is silent on this issue(I looked through the 06-07 rulebook online, found through GIS), the closest I could come to a definite answer was on a website for the IAABO basketball official's site for Connecticut.

"Palming or carrying the ball occurs when the ball comes to rest in the player's hand and the player dribbles a second time. There is no restriction as to how high a player may bounce the ball, provided the ball does not come to rest in a playerís hand and the hand stays above the ball."

So the last two threads I saw you post in on this board you acted like people that disagreed with you were idiots. The ironic thing you were the one that was blatantly wrong the whole time.

this was also my thought originally and is once again. yesterday while balling I was called for doing this very thing. my hand was always on top, but I let it go up to my shoulders, so they called carrying and erased my bucket. good to know I was right and can now point to the rulebook as proof.

I dunno, depends on what the NBA stars want to do. Then Stern will change the rules for em so they can do it.

the nba could be different(it's a possibility and i wouldn't be surprised if they let this stuff go). all basketball leagues allow a maximum of 5 fouls but the nba allows 6. the nba also plays four 12 minute quarters instead of two 20 minute halves. the nba nowadays allow travelling which they call "two steps to gather yourself". the nba plays with a different set of rules than fiba, college, and what we traditionally would call basketball. just because nba players can get away with dribbling the ball too high doesn't mean you can in your high school or college teams.

of course, the thread starter was giving an example using lamar odom, who was called for dribbling too high, so such rule probably does exist in the nba(whether the refs are consistent enough to call it every time is a different issue). obviously the nba is never consistent with these things, whether it be carrying, travelling, or calling players for fouls and charges. i think you all need to be aware that such a rule exist, that technically you're not allowed to dribble too high in an organized league.

and i honestly couldn't find a link. i did a search on google and that was the one i found so i used it.

i don't believe i'm blatantly wrong, in fact i believe i'm right; if you want to call me "blatantly wrong" you better be able to provide me solid proof. it's the way i was taught to play and honestly high dribbling almost never occurs in real games because players are taught to keep a low dribble.

i'm not calling people idiots, i'm just surprised that so many of you who have watched and play basketball aren't aware of such a rule. don't believe me if you want, but if you ever play in an actual game, you're going to get called.
