I say nothing. The faster I throw the ball up the fewer problems there are. Game on.

After the game, we questioned whether this was legal or not, but determined it was, as all players were not within 3' of the circle. Has anyone else seen this before, and do you agree that this is legal ??
Only problem I see is the coach hollering "let's go".

We start when we're ready, not when you're ready.

Regarding "Let it hit the rim" ... I almost never say anything, but if I feel like a reminder is needed, I simply say "Let it hit". "Let it hit the rim" in incorrect as the ball hitting the backboard would end the restrictions.

Regarding the original post ... I came up two possible reasons why this could be illegal.
1) Are they changing positions around the center restraining circle? [Anyone know of a case play/definition that explains clarified what "around the restraining circle means? Is it 3 feet as in the OP? I can't find it.]
2) Are they taking a position in an occupied space?
caseplay:


6.3.2 SITUATION:

The referee is ready to toss the ball to start the game. (a) A1 who was on the center restraining circle backs off; (b) B1 moves onto the *restraining circle into an unoccupied spot; (c) B2 moves off the circle and goes behind A2 and is within 3 feet of the circle; or (d) B3 moves off the circle about 5 feet and moves around behind A3 and A4 who are occupying spaces on the *circle.

RULING: Legal in (a) and (d), but a violation in both (b) and (c). Moving off the restraining circle in (a), and around the circle when more than 3 feet away as in (d), is permissible. It is a violation to move onto the circle as in (b), until the ball leaves the official's hand, or into an occupied space as in (c), until the ball is touched. The violation by B results in a throw-in for Team A. (4-3)

I use similar jargon. I officiate FIBA. Many of our players play both FED and FIBA rules so it is a good reminder for the crew as well as the players.

Sounds like 4 players were changing positions to me.

They were not changing positions "around the center restraining circle" because they were more than three feet from the center restraining circle.

I think so... There is no time component to that ststement. Although after thinking about it, I like "find a spot" better. Telling someone to pick/find a spot is sort of meaningless. They can "pick/find" the spot that they are currently in -- everyone is always on a spot on the floor-- and then move legally. I'm accomplishing the goal of administering the toss without implying a restriction that doesn't exist as "Hold your spot" does.

Maybe I should Skype my posts so that you could hear the tone of my voice, and see my facial expression. I don't do smilies, and good Forum members don't use the blue font method.

Agree. So why say anything that's meaningless? Just do what Adam, and AremRed do:

Saying "find a spot" is meaningless in the sense that it is impossible to not comply and it doesn't contridict any rule, but it can help with speeding up the administration and avoiding a jump ball violation when there are multiple players shuffling around the circle prior to the jump.

Why not skip the color and direction, too?

I hit the whistle, step in, and toss it up.

Whistle, as I walk in I tell jumpers to be ready b/c I don't bounce the ball, toss.

I stopped doing color/direction.

To me, "find a spot" implies they need to find a spot and hold it. I don't see how it's substantively different from "hold your spots."
