Shooter gets own rebound

Airborne fumble post reminded me of my last game in kids rec.

We had 3-4 cases where the shooter attempts a shot and gets his/her own rebound without the ball touching rim or backboard. My partner calls traveling each time.

I believe this is a legal action.

Who is right?

What if the player catches his/ her own pass?

Anything legal there?

Oh, by the way, I like the new forum.

This question is asked almost every other week it seems. Yes it is legal. The ball never has to touch the rim on a shot. Once the ball is shot, or the shooter has released the try, then the ball is fair game. This is legal in NF and NCAA rules. The only place I believe it is illegal is at the NBA level. The NBA is not real basketball to most in the first place.

Rut is right on the shot.
Legal NFHS, NCAA. Illegal NBA.

For the pass. If the player doesn't move the pivot foot = nothing.

If the pivot is moved and the ball doesn't hit the floor = illegal dribble (not a travel)

If the pivot is moved and the ball does hit the floor = a dribble and
a. is legal if the player hasn't yet used his dribble.
b. is a double dribble violation if he has.
