Actually Mark is being funny as usual. It's all about the term "call". A coach of player can never "call" a timeout, they can only "request" at timeout. It is the officials responsibility to recognize that request evaluate the situation and "call" the timeout.

I sure hope that clears it up for Y'all.

BTW TalkinHoopsY'all what group are you with?


If you were with the SOWB you would KNOW who I am?

So to answer your original question. If A is shooting, your grant the timeout. If B is shooting and has the ball you ignore the request.
