The reff throws the ball into the middle of two players
Basketball games are started with the opening tip, which is a jump ball. In some competitions, a jump ball is also used to settle held balls (jointly held) and penalty possessions. In others, the alternating possession rule is used.
Referees are the officials who judge how the game is being played. They are the people who watch the game and blow the whistle if their is something wrong, like a foul.
Starts with possession of jump-ball to start game
No not really the COACH cant only if he blew the whistle.
As a referee myself, I can answer from a personal perspective. The essentials are obviously a whistle and a watch (professional refs often have two watches - one stopwatch and one quartz). A notebook to record score with red and yellow cards, as well as a coin to flip to determine who takes kick-off.
