illegal screen?

While we were playing basketball, a player picks up his dribble, then he accident drops the ball. As the ball rolls around, he screens his opponents from getting the ball, moving along with the ball. Is this a legal move, and if not what kind of call should it be?

Your post is lacking one of the main criteria for calling a team control foul. With no mention of contact it sounds like a play on.

Actually, it would have been perfectly legal had he just picked up the ball.

Did you guys win?

So as long as he's not pushing his opponent out of the way, he can block his opponent from getting to the ball?

Can you tell us which rule would prevent him from doing so?

Nope, never said that...

Your first post mentioned nothing about contact.

Sure, there's no rule against that specific act. How would that be different than blocking an opponent from getting to the shooter? They must still follow the same rules involving screens, including time and distance.

Hung,

There is no rule against placing your body between the ball and your opponent. As long as the player does not initiate contact with the opponent, or put his body in an unnatural position (by extending his legs or hips), he is entitled to any spot on the court. This is the same idea as "boxing out" on a rebound -- simply taking a spot on the floor so that if your opponent wants the ball, he has to foul you to get it.

Sounds like a smart hustle play to me.

And as someone else mentioned, he could've simply picked up the ball legally, as long as he didn't try to dribble again.

This is a classic example of obstruction. The offended team is awarded an indirect free kick and if the offender is considered in the judgement of the referee to have been guilty of persistent infringement would be shown the yellow card. Oops!! I forgot. This is basketball not soccer.
