Fumble?

Fumble is judgement, correct?

A1 is dribbling and goes to make a one-handed bounce pass off the dribble to A2 ... just as A1 goes to release he sees A2 is being defended and attempts to pull back, however ball floats ahead where A1 takes a couple of steps and grabs the ball.

Do you have anything here?

My thought was he was attempting a pass, but after thinking it over it could have been a fumble.

Thoughts?

I believe even if it was a pass, it can be retrieved. As long as the player doesn't start a new dribble, it sounds legal.

it is ur judgement, but if he still had his dribble before the pass or fumble you can retrieve it. If you judgment says it was a pass and he got it then no dribble can be made. If u thought it was a fumble than he can still dribble. remember you can fumble , dribble, fumble, but u cant dribble fumble, dribble.

a pass could be the start of a dribble if its a legit pass and he still has a dribble.

if he didnt have his dribble before the pass than he can get it if its thought to be a fumble, but cant get it if u think its a pass..

That's the key ... he can't get it if the officials judges it to be a pass - only if it was a fumble.

If he does get it and the official judges it to be a pass - what is the violation called?

It's not the poster's fault. He probably has the same problem with his keyboard that my daughter, and my son's best friend, have. The shift key is broken. Whenever I get an email from them, the proper nouns, and the beginning of sentences, never have a capital letter. How much do you want to bet that all three have the same brand, and model, keyboard?

Wasn't that the name of the fictional television newsmagazine that Murphy Brown (Candice Bergen) hosted back in the late 1980's and into the 1990's?

Very Discomforting

My keyboard really caused me problems Christmas day. Everytime I tried to type (input) an a, e, i, o, or u, the keyboard would stick and I'd end up with five or six of those letters all strung together. I took my keyboard into the local computer tech today, and he diagnosed it as "irritable vowel syndrome." He fixed it.
Sorry.
