No, there is no rule that says you must dribble the basketball before you can shoot it. But you may not take any steps with out dribbling the ball, if you do "travel" with the ball without dribbling the referee will whistle a penalty.
yes you must dribble first
Yes, as long as you smile pretty at the refs
Yes! U can take a step before starting dribbling.but u need u dribble as soon as u move. Bcoz u can use one of ur foot as pivot. Then you can take two steps before a lay up shot.
As many seconds as you like, as long as you don't violate the shot clock rule.
Be able to handle the ball dribble,shot, and foot work.
Of course not! The only thing that will affect the dribble or shot projection of the ball is based on how well you are able to handle the ball.
I Taking A Class D liscense and this is my topic.
yes, that is perfectly legal. just don't jump to fake the shot, that would be traveling.
== == == == A jump shot is just a shot that isn't a layup, dunk, or floater. Basically a shot at least 10ft away and requires you to jump and release with a stroke. when a person playing basketball elevates (jumps) before taking a shot<< this can sometimes improve accuracy and decrease distance from the basket. == == when a person playing basketball elevates (jumps) before taking a shot<< this can sometimes improve accuracy and decrease distance from the basket.
