I dont think that you can pass to yourself unless you bounce it off someone else. If you pass to yourself it might be considered traveling.

the only way you can is to bounce it off the backboard or another player

A player may throw the ball off the backboard and catch it. However, the player must receive the pass while in the air and shoot or pass before he comes down. Otherwise, the call is traveling

Actually, this is a yes and a no question. The NBA rule book specifically states that a player in control the ball while dribbling may not step out of bounds and re-enter the 'in-bounds' area of the court and quote he may not even be the first player to touch the ball end quote. However, the rule book does not convey the language for a 'loose ball'. In the event of a errant pass or loose ball a player may in fact prevent the ball from leaving the 'in-bounds' area and step out of bounds and if possible re-enter the 'in-bounds' area and be the first player to touch/gain control/pass/dribble the ball and play is continued. I have officiated the game in my college days and spoken to many retired and current officials of the game who conquer it's a judgment call to begin with and very rare but carries both an illegal violation along with a legal play provided no player has control of the ball while flirting with the out of bounds lines anywhere on the court.

well there is only one ball in play in a Basketball game so if someone else is shooting you cant save the ball from going out of bounds but you can save the ball from going in the hoop by blocking it.
