Sometimes it's not a big conspiracy.

That would make sense if there were any other players on that half of the court, but in this case there arenít any. It is just the official, the inbounder and a teammate in the backcourt. The official isnít looking at a nearby matchup, he just isnít paying any attention to the routine, unpressured throw-in.

And I can see myself making that mistake in a moment, too. I'm just saying I don't see it as a nefarious plot to not call violations.

The better the play the better we expect them to do basic things.

There is no boundary plane for inbounders (feet, ball, hands, or body) in the NFHS, just defenders. The running start makes it look odd and the start of the bounce pass looks very much like the start of a dribble, but it isn't ...

For those of us that don't officiate NBA games, is this an actual NFHS violation? If so, why?

Slight Murmur By The Fans ...

I've had a few of these over forty years. I barely notice something "odd" in my peripheral vision, and there's a slight murmur by the fans, and I say to myself, I wish that I was paying closer attention.

Defensive coaches seldom complain because on routine no pressure backcourt throwins they're usually communicating with their players upcourt regarding defensive assignments. Of course, offensive coaches aren't going to complain for obvious reasons.

But there's always a few fans of the offended team in the bleachers, often near the endlines, who notice and complain, thus the slight murmur from the crowd in the cheap seats.

I see a lot of officials do not pay attention to throw-in legality and mostly after a made basket. This looked bad, but often it is too routine for many of us so we do not pay attention to the details.

I say this because I have called these violations with no pressure only to be argued how much they did not violate. It is actually kind of funny how lazy players are to make throw-ins sometimes.

Peace
