Yes, that's how, sometimes, the ball gets stuck on the hoop. It gets wedged between the backboard and the side of the rim.
No if it was airball and nobody touched it it would be traveling. Once it has it the backboard its anybody's ball.
The basketball backboard is there to show ppl where to shot the ball to get it in.
when someone dribbles up to the net, takes 2 steps and then shoots the ball (usally in the top right corner of the backboard). by a random guy.
If a player shoots and it doesn't hit the backboard or rim, and they catch it before it hits the floor, it's a travel. The ball either has to: a) Hit the rim or backboard. b) Hit the ground before the player can retain possession again.
No, it is not considered out of bounds if the ball hits the side of the backboard. Unless it bounces off the side of the backboard and then out of bounds before you or someone else can catch it.
When a player throws the ball onto the backboard and a person catches it after it hits the backboard
Yes, it is. As long as the ball does not hit the back of the backboard or the shot clock, the shot is valid.
If the ball goes off the rim and over the backboard then it is out of bounds. If it goes off the rim and hits the top of the backboard but falls back in play on the front side of the backboard, then it isn't out of bounds.
