We weten allemaal dat heel erg officieel Basketball een sport is waarbij geen contact toegestaan is. Maar stiekem leggen we allemaal dat handje wel even op de tegenstander om ‘contact te maken’.
Hoe zit de regel nou ook weer precies? Regel 34.1.1 zegt het volgende:
A personal foul is a player’s illegal contact with an opponent, whether the ball is live or dead. A player shall not hold, block, push, charge, trip or impede the progress of an opponent by extending his hand, arm, elbow, shoulder, hip, leg, knee or foot, nor by bending his body into an ‘abnormal’ position (outside his cylinder), nor shall he indulge in any rough or violent play.
Artikel 33.1 zegt ook nog:
The touching of an opponent with a hand(s) is, in itself, not necessarily a foul. The officials shall decide whether the player who caused the contact has gained an advantage. If contact caused by a player in any way restricts the freedom of movement of an opponent, such contact is a foul. Illegal use of the hand(s) or extended arm(s) occurs when the defensive player is in a guarding position and his hand(s) or arm(s) is placed upon and remains in contact with an opponent with or without the ball, to impede his progress. To repeatedly touch or ‘jab’ an opponent with or without the ball is a foul, as it may lead to rough play.
Te technisch? Laten we dan samen even in dit filmpje duiken:
