b. Contact away from the ball with an opponent who is clearly not involved with a play.

c. Contact that is not a legitimate attempt to play the ball/player specifically designed to stop the clock or keep it from starting.

d. Excessive contact with an opponent while the ball is live or until an airborne shooter returns to the floor.

e. Contact with a thrower-in as in 9-2-10 Penalty 4.
Rule: 4-19-5



going beyond the usual, necessary, or proper limit or degree; characterized by excess :
excessive charges; excessive criticism.

How is purposely tripping your opponent not an intentional act. If anyone sees this you are allowing kids to get away with things that only make your game worse. The referee saw him him doing non basketball movements. I am 6'5" when I go down its a long way its going to hurt.

If it was accidental its one thing. The referee judged it was done on purpose.

Great call!

Question did the kid or coach give you grief?
Shouldn't "intentional tripping" be considered a flagrant act and warrant ejection?
If some rules are never enforced, then why do they exist?
