None.

If a player is touching OOB, or is in the air having last touched OOB, the player is OOB. If the player is not OOB, the player is inbounds.

You dont "have" any feet on the court to be IB. However you must have "had" both feet on the court to be IB.

Does that make sence.

"Both feet" is not a requirement.

Careful, that's not exactly true either. For example, if the player is coming from OOB, steps one foot entirely inbounds while the other foot is in the air, that player is considered inbounds.

Inbounds for the sake of what he/she cant touch the ball untill they have established the other foot inbounds, so are you inbounds with only one foot coming from OOB?
Only if you only have one foot.

MichiganOfficial - I am unaware of any requirement to have both feet inbounds to be considered inbounds. If there is a rules reference to support your claim please list it, because I am pretty sure there isn't one. If there is one it will help me to not make that mistake anymore.

This is incorrect. Only one foot has to be established on the court before the player can gain control of the ball. The two foot "rule" is one more of the myths of basketball.
