Basketball ?

Wonder why a player can be in the air in the motion of shooting and is fouled and the ball goes in the basket counts BUT if the player is (example) under the basket and is going up in the motion of shooting but the ball has NOT left his finger tips and the final buzzer goes of and then the ball leaves his hand and goes in, it doesn't count???

It is simply another conspiracy by Obama Brian. I am sure he will use his executive powers to rectify that. Those ball freaks on here will then interpret it as creeping socialism and a guerrilla takeover of the government. Not to mention he is destroying the sporting culture if the US. We have to get rid of this guy???????

Well, the ball has to be out of the shooter`s hands at the buzzer to count.  In your first sentence, do you mean the defense fouls the shooter?  Because if the shooter fouls the basket won`t count.  If I`m understanding you correctly.

I mean the shooter is fouled and the ball has not left his hands but he follows through and the ball goes in. It counts. But the ball has to be out of his hands and not just in the act of shooting at the buzzer. I think they should be the same either way.

It's called continuation, Brian, but the buzzer ends the game, hence, no continuation?? Make sense?

Re: Basketball ?

A foul should also end the play especially when a lot of the time it becomes a judgement as to in what part of the motion the foul took place as to whether it is a continuation or before the beginning of the shooting action. I think they should both be the same whichever way they want but be the same.

This would give more incentive to foul. The basket counting after a foul is more of a penalty to the other team. A punishment for wrongdoing. The buzzer is simply the end of the game.

Re: Basketball ?

Look at it this way, The player with the ball is roughed up trying to put the ball in the basket, therefore, having the foul called but the ball does go into the basket. Reward the player with the basket because he/she was roughed up. Make sense?

 

At the end of the half or the game, the player with the ball knows how much time is on the clock, if he/she holds the ball past the time of the buzzer why should he/she be rewarded with a basket? No one was impeding their way to the basket they just held the ball to long.

It's like the NFL when the ball breaks the plain of the end zone its's a TD, but the ball can break the plain of the side line and as long as the feet are inside the line it's okay.  Just way it was decided to write the rules.
