Situation:

A1 inbounding from baseline after a made shot. Upon crossing the midcourt line, A1 picks up the dribble and is trapped by B1 and B2. To avoid a 5 second violation, A1 passes to A2 who is jumping over the midcourt line and catches the ball before he lands. Is this a back court violation?

Yes, Sleeper.
The ball was in the Front court.
A2 was in the back court, ...until he was in the front court.

This is because A2 is not in the front court until he actually lands, right?

Just remember that you are where you are, until you get where you are going.

That's one of, if not my favorite quote. The only tweak I like is to say "You are where you were until you get where you are going".
