Last night,

When Diogu stood at the restricted area and Melo drove the ball to his body, refs called foul on Giogu.

When Camby stood at the restricted area, Diogu drove the ball to his body, refs called foul on Giogu.

Stand = not moving

it's the circle underneath the basket.
n it's diogu (just wondered why you got it right the first time in each sentence n not the second)

it could be they though one player's body was moving but not their feet, n vice cersa.

n then there's the fact Camby is making multi-millions as a recognised star, n diogu...isnt. (yet)

From the refs angle maybe it looked differently

It should be "his", not "their" in your 2nd sentence.

A player can't move his feet and body in the circle?

technically it's not a mistake, but doesnae matter (as "they" or "their" meaning playerS (any example of this situation, not just this one)
but thats just being pedantic.
btw, i meant to imply what nwt did (basically, it's the damn refs)

as i understand it, a blocking foul cant occur when a player is standing still.
and a charge cant be taken in the restraining circle (under the basket) can it?
which is why post defenders need to stand on the edge of the circle to have any chance of properly defending slashers.

but anyway..

The restricted area is anywhere outside of the circle under the basket...EXCEPT for the baseline. It can be in the restricted area if the player is going down the baseline.

Correct grammar:
One player ...................his
players ........................their

My understanding:

Players can move their body, but not feet.

Anything above the dancer's garter belt is restricted.. just slide the money in, and then Back Away !
unless it's a lapdance, then different rules apply.

wait.. wrong message board. My bad !
