Authorized Out of Bounds?

B1, defending a pass near the sideline, lunges and knocks the ball into the backcourt where it bounces inbounds along the sideline. His momentum takes him out of bounds, and he stumbles for several strides. He then returns to the court, establishes himself inbounds, and picks up the ball. Anything wrong with this play?

No, once he reestablish back inbounds legal the key here is momentum.

Well, there's the fact that the defender is clumsy. And where's the offensive team while all this stumbling is going on? Are they just standing around watching this happen instead of going for the ball?? So many things wrong here...

Oh, you mean rules-wise? Momentum during play took the player OOB, did not intentionally delay coming back in, and established themselves inbounds before touching the ball. Nope, nothing wrong here.

I'm guessing a coach didn't agree?

Close enough. Claimed it was wrong on two counts: running out of bounds instead of returning to the court at the spot he left; and the old football canard: that he could not be the first player to touch the ball after he had been OOB.
