Basketball Fundamental # 6 to be exact. It is not possible for a player to travel during a dribble.

Definition 4-44-5b After gaining possession on the floor and touching with other than hand or foot, may not attempt to get up or stand.

Situation: Player A1 dives for and gains possession of the ball. While on the floor, A1 begins to dribble and then proceeds to get up.

How would you rule on this?

I would rate this as too close to my user name!
 
Z is right of course . . . dribble it down, dribble it up . . . it's all good . . .

4-44-5b actually only applies while holding the ball....

ART. 5 . . . A <b>player holding the ball</B>:
a. May not touch the floor with a knee or any other part of the body other than hand or foot.
b. After gaining possession while on the floor and touching with other than hand or foot, may not attempt to get up or stand.

If they start a dribble, this no longer applies.
