yeah, ur thinking of football when if a receiver goes out of bounds, he can't touch the ball first. In Basketball, you can jump into the crowd if u want and back and then still get the ball.

In basketball can you save the ball to yourself?

Actually, this is a yes and a no question. The NBA rule book specifically states that a player in control the ball while dribbling may not step out of bounds and re-enter the 'in-bounds' area of the court and quote he may not even be the first player to touch the ball end quote. However, the rule book does not convey the language for a 'loose ball'. In the event of a errant pass or loose ball a player may in fact prevent the ball from leaving the 'in-bounds' area and step out of bounds and if possible re-enter the 'in-bounds' area and be the first player to touch/gain control/pass/dribble the ball and play is continued. I have officiated the game in my college days and spoken to many retired and current officials of the game who conquer it's a judgment call to begin with and very rare but carries both an illegal violation along with a legal play provided no player has control of the ball while flirting with the out of bounds lines anywhere on the court.

Can you run out of bounds to get around someone and come back in bounds to continue play during a game of basketball?

During the course of play, as long as you reestablish legal position on the court prior to receiving the ball play continues without penalty. An inbounds play may be a different case. I believe you cannot be the first one to touch the inbounded ball if you go out of bounds to shake a defender.
