If a player shoots and it doesn't hit the backboard or rim, and they catch it before it hits the floor, it's a travel. The ball either has to: a) Hit the rim or backboard. b) Hit the ground before the player can retain possession again.
If the ball goes off the rim and over the backboard then it is out of bounds. If it goes off the rim and hits the top of the backboard but falls back in play on the front side of the backboard, then it isn't out of bounds.
NO it doesn't as you are not touching the ball and moving with it in your hands
as long as the ball makes contact with anything in play, their teammate or opposition or backboard or rim, then the player can receive the ball back. Players throw ally-oops to themselves off the backboard a few times a year. If you do not know answers please do not add yes or no answers and hope you are correct.

In basketball the ball on a foul shot the ball must hit the rim or another player before the man throwing the ball can touch it. That is the Wilt Chamberlain rule. He would throw the ball against the backboard, catch it, and throw it in for 2 points. That is not permitted any more.
