After catching the Basketball in the air, the player has the ability to take two steps. After two steps, the player must stop. He/she may rotate on a pivot foot or may move freely, as long as they stop after catching the basketball in the air.
This is assuming that by catch the player catches the ball with 2 hands, as if they control the ball with one hand, they don't have to stop at all.
well you can take as many steps as you need but you have to dribble the ball if not dribbling, the max is 2.
it is a travel and the other team gets the ball
When a basketball player runs with the ball with out dribbling, they are traveling which is against the rules.
a dunk is when a basketball player j's the ball
A player cannot both have and not have the ball.
a ball player
A back court violation when the offensive player with the ball steps behind the half court line after crossing it.
It is essentially an out. If it is a fly ball the player catching it receives a put out. If a ground ball and the player throws the ball to first, the player throwing receives an assist and the player catching and tagging the base before the runner receives the put out.
There is no "meaning" that you speak of. Catching the ball is just an action that requires your hands placing a grip on the ball. The sole purpose is to receive the ball from another player.
The player who tips the ball.
If someone has a ball and they take two steps without bouncing it, it is traveling.
