What is a intercept in basketball?

Well mate. The Word Interception is used in many sports and even sports video games. Anywhere you name it. Lets say the opponent has the ball in a basketball game and you know he was about to pass it to his team mate. You predict his pass and quikly grab the ball in mid air from the pass. That is called an interception. Extra Advice: If your playing NFL and you drop the ball and someone else picks it up that's called fumble so it doesn't count as interception. Just fumble.
