Pass Off Backboard

I saw LebRon James passed the ball to himself off the backboard after he had ebded his dribble. Is this legal in NFHS?

It is legal at all levels. It is only a dribble if you throw the ball off your opponent's basket.

Peace

Legal play at all levels of play

Edit: Except apparently for FIBA

Not ALL levels. FIBA would be illegal.

Is that only because FIBA makes the opposite distinction between an opponent's basket and one's own basket?

Self Pass And Dunk ???

NFHS. We've discussed this many times before here on the Forum. Many believe that anything thrown off of one's own backboard should, or must, be treated as a shot, so all bets are off in regard to illegal dribble, travel, team control, etc. I'm not sure that there is a written citation that confirms this, but this is what most follow in regard to such a play.

I believe it is written somewhere that you can throw the ball off your own backboard without violating. Don't believe it has anything to do with being considered a try.

Just Making Sure

We are talking about the front of the backboard, right?

That's right. Throwing the ball off your own backboard is treated as a dribble. If a player has picked up (ended) his dribble and then throws the ball off the backboard, that would constitute an illegal dribble.

A player who receives the ball, throws the ball against his own backboard, and continues to dribble the ball after it returns to the floor has not violated.

I've never seen either one.

Are you using the FIBA definitions here?

I believed you have misread my post and the rule.

I don't think so. FIBA releases interpretations yearly and we were told to treat a pass off the backboard (any backboard I believe) as a dribble.
