if there is a ref you should try to keep the ball below your waist but can go as high as your shoulder. If it is pick-up you can generally get away with anything up to and including your forehead at full standing height. Make sure to put your hand underneath the ball at least once per dribble for maximum control/style. Shuffle your feet constantly while the ball is in your hand/palm. upon receiving the ball (make sure to call for it constantly) you can take 2-5 steps in any direction you wish before putting the ball down and starting your move. a good idea is to take one big dribble, pause at the top with your hand under the ball, and then take little steps (if executed properly there should be an audible squeaking) until your defender looks confused then shoot at will from anywhere on the court while shouting "and one!!!" as loud as you can regardless of how close your shot is to going in.Remember that YOU are fresh like KOBE and KOBE NEVER PASSES. Anyone who questions your dribbleing or shot selection is hating on you.

it depends on how tall you are. if your taller it will be easier because your arms are longer. if you have shorter arms it will be harder. the average height of a male is about 6 foot. chances are your arm length is about 2 feet and 2 inches. so the top of your head should be 8 feet in the air. once its 8 feet you will be dunking the ball.

The height of the bounce depends on the speed with which it strikes the ground. The harder you throw it down, the higher it will bounce.

Since a Basketball is a real physical object, there's a practical limit here: at some point, it will explode rather than bounce. However, short of getting a bunch of basketballs and testing them to destruction, it's hard to tell what that limit would be.

How long can a basketball bounce?

Several factors affect the bounce of a basketball including the height that it was dropped from. The bounce factor includes elasticity, air pressure, force applied to it, and how rigid the surface is that the ball is bounced on.

How long does it take for an inflated basketball to lose air?

Depends on a lot of factors. Climate can effect how long a basketball holds its bounce. Really cold weather (below 50) will cause a basketball to loose it's bounce rather quickly. If stored at room temperature, a basketball should hold its bounce for around 3-6 months.

Major basketball skills?

* Dribbling - Dribbling is a crucial skill in basketball. Learn how to control the ball at game speed and keep the ball away from the opposition. Staying low and keeping the ball at waist level will help you keep possession. Always dribble with your head up and look for your teammates. No double dribbling - when you have stopped dribbling the ball, you must either pass the ball to a teammate or take a shot. To check out some drills for improving your dribbling. * Passing - Passing is the best way to keep possession of the basketball and is a faster way of moving the ball up the court than dribbling. There are three main kinds of passes in basketball: the bounce pass, the chest pass and the overhead pass. * Shooting - If you can't shoot, then you won't score, so shooting is one of the most important basketball skills to develop. Learn the three basic shots: the layup, the set shot and the jump shot. * Pivot - Pivoting with the basketball alows you to change direction and look for a pass or shot. Remember not to move your pivot foot.


Is dribbling the ball over your head carrying?

There is nothing wrong with dribbling the ball over your head, even though you should dribble from the floor to your waist for proper dribbling. As long as you don't necessarily carry the ball, or put your hand under it to move the ball, it is not considered a carry.


How high will a basketball bounce if dropped?

If we knew from what height the ball, when dropped, would reach its terminal velocity, and if we knew the percentage of rebound the ball would give, we could then be certain. I can only guess that a basketball will rebound approximately 75% of the height from which it is dropped, and if the height at which it would reach terminal velocity is maybe 300 feet, the ball would bounce back up to 225 feet. Just a guess! A basketball has an elasticity (or "bounciness") of about 56 percent.I'm not sure there's a theoretical limit. In practice, of course, there would be one: when the velocity of the ball impacting the ground is so great the ball explodes rather than bouncing. But you'd have to fire it out of some kind of basketball cannon to get it moving that fast.The official standard for ball inflation is that the ball should bounce roughly 75% of its drop height (specifically, between 49" and 54") when dropped from 6 feet. If you're referring to just the height a dropped ball could bounce and you're not throwing it down with some kind of basketball-downward-hurling machine, you could calculate the theoretical bounce height by figuring out what terminal velocity is for a basketball, calculating how high you'd have to drop it from (assuming no atmosphere) to achieve that velocity, and then multiplying by 0.75. I'm not going to do it for you, because I'm not actually all that interested in the answer, but that's how you could do it if you are.


If a basketball is properly inflated, it should rebound after bouncing on the ground to about one-Half the height from which it was dropped. If the ball is dropped from 20 feet, how high will it bounce back after the sixth bounce?

75%
