Of course you can jump during a free throw but most players do not jump to have a consistency on their shot.
A jump ball is when two players line up around either the half-court line or the free throw line to jump and tip the ball after a referee throws it up. The rest of the players are around the circle, and both players doing the jump try to tip the ball to a teammate.
yes but not over the line, that's why NBA players don't as they are tall enough and don't want to take the chance
No, your feet must stay planted behind the free throw line.
you jump up and throw the ball in
You may only jump upwards. The point is that you cannot cross the free throw line during the shot attempt.
They practice jumping 'til the jump so high
Often, jump shooters are accurate free throw shooters and percentages play in the jump shooters favor at the free throw line. For example, a good jump shooter might shoot 46-50% from the field, but at the free throw line this increases to 80% and higher (i.e. ~30% increase in getting 2 or 3 points). One exception would be if the jump shooter has a clear layup or dunk (virtually 100% success). In this case, fouling and preventing the basket is worth it.
yes it can, why do you think basketball players where basketball shoes it makes them jump higher
Yes, they are allowed to jump or leave the ground while shooting a free throw. But if they jump when they shoot and the tip of their shoe croses the line then the freethrow basket will not count.
Virgins can jump higher, so I believe that there is lot of virgin basketball players.
the one-hand set shot, jump shot, free throw, three-point shot, hook shot, lay-up and runner :)
It's a jump ball so it could be either team's ball.

Some of the main key words are: Foul, out of bounds, free-throw, three pointer, jump shot, dunk, block, assist, rebound, outlet, and fast break.
a jump ball is called
A jump shot is a shot you take when you jump in basketball!!!
This type of play typically ends in a "jump ball". The level of play determines the next course of action by the ref's. In the NBA, they would literally have a "tip off" type jump ball around the free throw line. In youth leagues, they would let the possession arrow determine who gets the ball.
basketball players don't have to play college. they can just make the jump from high school to the NBA
i believe its nate Robinson small but can jump high
Yes, you may jump, as long as the shooter does not jump over the line. You may cross the free throw line once the ball hits the rim. Typically, pros do not jump, but it is more common to see juniors jumping since they may not be strong enough to reach the basket without jumping.
In college and below when a jump ball occurs there is a possession indicator on the scoreboard, once the jumpball occurs which ever way the indicator points is who gets the ball. The possession changes every time this happens. In the NBA when a jump ball occurs, the two players involved have to do a jump ball at the free throw line.
A basketball match has 5 players from each team at a time on the court. In the centre ring, a player from each team will begin in 'jump ball'. This means that an umpire will throw a ball up and the player doing jump ball will try to tap the ball in the air to a player from their own team. This is how it begins.
It is from the free-throw line which is about 10 away from the basket.
