In the early days of Basketball teams used a jump ball to determine possession after each scored basket. This rule was changed in the 1930s to the current method of the defending team taking possession and throwing the ball in bounds after a score.

In college and below when a jump ball occurs there is a possession indicator on the scoreboard, once the jumpball occurs which ever way the indicator points is who gets the ball. The possession changes every time this happens. In the NBA when a jump ball occurs, the two players involved have to do a jump ball at the free throw line.
It is possibly for a jump ball to be re done, but it has to be in emergency situations for example, when they do the jump ball and the lights go out, they will redo the jump.
a ball can't jump
The jump ball area is in the centre of the basketball court.
I've seen 20 million.
which ever team gets the ball after the jump ball.the ref. will throw the ball directly up and two people facing each other will jump up and try to bat/hit/slap the ball to the other teams side[the direction they're shooting] and somebody will grab it and start dribbling it in the correct direction or pass it to someone else on their team.
If there is a "jump" ball..whatever team has the "B" lit get possession. You will notice after that happens the "B" will light up for the team that did not get the ball.
The jump ball starts at the beginning of the game when the referee throws the ball up in the air.
A basketball match has 5 players from each team at a time on the court. In the centre ring, a player from each team will begin in 'jump ball'. This means that an umpire will throw a ball up and the player doing jump ball will try to tap the ball in the air to a player from their own team. This is how it begins.
