In the first sentence it said the player with the ball which would includes everything including airborne shooter. Why not be clear and consistent and just state the player dribbling the ball?

Secondly, why even state that the offensive player must have their head and shoulders past the defense if you believe every contact would then be a blocking foul? Seems you have contradicted yourself. The dribbler is allowed to make the defense liable for the contact if he's able to get his head and shoulders past the defensive player, but not the airborne shooter.

I actually had a play exactly like a described. So it's not me making it complicated, but the play itself with coaches requiring an astute interpretation.
