I was just wondering something... If a1 takes a shot and its an airball and he gets his own rebound; is this traveling? I know that it used to be, but did they change this rule if it is a legit shot?

4.43B. Play: A1 attempts a try after ending the dribble. The try does not touch the backboard, the rim or any other player. A1 runs and is able to catch the ball before it strikes the floor. Is this traveling? Ruling: No. When A1 recovered his/her own try, A1 could either dribble, pass or try again. There was no team control after the ball was released on a try. (4-12; 4-40)

Just be sure it was a weak shot, and the player wasn't "passing to him/herself." You still will hear it from the stands "TRAVELING!!", but you will be correct with a quiet whistle.

Actually taught players something

In a Rec League game I officiated on Saturday, this happened TWICE. In the first half of the game, the players were screaming for traveling. At halftime, I showed the players the casebook example, and when it happened in the second half, the only complained about how stupid the rule was and not about "stripes missed the call".

I guess rec-league players are teachable once in a while.

That wasn't my experience. I swore off rec ball last year!

My worst incident involved a player going completely ballistic when his opponent was moving his feet while inbounding the ball. The angry player insisted it was travelling.... (Of course, the inbounder was staying within the confines of the designated spot.)
