That is the correct spelling of "pivot" in basketball (to turn the body about on one foot).

If you get the ball or stop your dribble and pick up or move one foot, the foot that stays still is your pivot foot. If you were to pick up your pivot foot it is a walk.

Yes

If you move/slide your pivot foot when falling it is a travel.

Answerit's were you get the ball and step with one foot but then you cannot move that foot so pretend that there is a nail in your foot but you can move clockwise or anticlockwise a pivot is also a thing u can use 4 thingsss

Yes, as long as the pivot foot has not lost contact with the floor. Yes, even if the pivot foot has left the floor, the ball can be caught but if the ball is under control when the pivot foot recontacts the floor...a travelling infraction has occurred.

True and false. You can pivot with both feet, but not at the same time.For instance, you could be driving towards the basket and then stop on your right foot, using that pivot foot. On the next possession, you may stop on your left foot, using that as your pivot foot.However, you may not start using one pivot foot and switch to the other at one time. That is traveling.

It's a stationary move you do to create space. There is the jab step, where you step to the outside with your non pivot foot, and the cross step where you step across your body with your off pivot foot.

A jump stop is when a player literally jumps to a stop before ceasing to dribble the basketball, making sure to land with both feet simultaneously. The benefit of this is that the player then has the option of using either foot as the pivot foot. If the player steps to a stop, the pivot foot is automatically the last foot with which the player stepped before dribbling ceased.

If you pick up your pivot foot, it is travelling.

Pivoting is moving the hips, shifting your weight, and turning WITHOUT lifting up your pivot foot.
