If goaltending is legal what sport is that?

If goaltending was legal, the sport that it would be legal in would be basketball. Goaltending is when a defensive player misdirects the ball from going through the hoop when the ball is on its way down through the hoop. When the ball is on its way up to the hoop, it is legal to misdirect it. Also when the ball has hit the backboard of the hoop it is not allowed to be touched or misdirected, because that is also considered goal tending, and if goaltending was taken out of the game of basketball then players would be able to touch the ball when it is in the air whenever they would like, and there would most likely not be as high of scoring as their is in basketball today if it was legal.
