YES, unless.... The count on a player in the restricted area is suspended when that player begins to try for a goal (shot).
"In the paint" or in the area in between the free throw line and basket
you mean in the 'key'?? - 3 seconds.
you can not stand directly in the lane for more than 3 seconds. you have to move out of the lane with both feet, and then you can step back in.
You have to have both of your feet out of the lane. For instance, if you have both your feet in for 2 1/2 seconds and walk out and then walk back in, you won't get a three second call.
After the second shot when it bounces off the rim.
Yes. A defensive player can stay in the lane as long as they wish.
The 3 second call in the lane does not start until the offense has brought the ball into the front court. At this point if a player spends 3 or more consecutive seconds in the lane, they are violating the 3 second rule. There is no three-second count during rebounding action or during an out-of-bounds throw-in. The count on a player in the restricted area is suspended when that player begins to try for a goal (shot).
In basketball, lane shooting is taking shots from inside the free throw lane. This is usually difficult because of the number of defenders.
As long as they want.
The Offensive Team
You're only allowed 3 seconds in the lane otherwise the opposing team shoots 1 technical foul shot and gets the ball after.
In 1935, a rule was adopted that stopped any offensive player from standing in the free throw lane for more than three seconds. In 1955, the foul lane was widened to 12 feet (3.7 meters) from the previous 6 feet (1.83 meters). These changes resulted in more offensive movement and less rough physical contact near the basket.
