yes it is eleagle It's legal, but it's not a stategy that anybody would use because a high dribble is a great way to get the ball stolen from you. Unless you're playing against a midget.

If an NBA player has picked up his dribble can he throw it off of the defender and start dribbling again?

yes he can. when the ball touches the defender possesion switches over to the opposing team witch allows the player the ability to regain the ball and continue on dribbling. though the defender could steal that ball. WORD TO THE WISE: most basketball players will not turn their back on the ball, and throwing the ball at a defender facing you can result in a technical foul.

Does anyone remember the 'air-dribble'?

The only air dribble I remember seeing was in the final game of the 1958 season between South Dakota State College (now SDSU) and the University of South Dakota. It was used to perfection by Clayton Kiewel of USD as he was dribbling down the floor with Harley Peterson of SDSC defending near the end of the game. In the middle of his dribble Kiewel tapped the ball in the air and touched it again before it hit the ground and continued his dribble on in for a game winning lay-up. When he tapped up the "air dribble" it left the defender spinning around looking for the basketball and Kiewel continued the drive uncontested. Beautiful play even if it did beat my team. USD won the right to go to the national NAIA tournament and won it that year because of that particular play.

Can you dribble basketball after opponent touches it?

Yes. According to NBA, NCAA, and High School Rules, if the dribble is stopped, and you hold onto the ball, you can begin to dribble again once an opposing player makes any contact with the ball in your hands. This includes but is not limited to attempting to strip or knock away the ball from your possession. Even if you retain possession, you are free to dribble again.
