Muchos de los vídeos de nuestros Casos de Estudio fueron "enterrados" por el Canal de Pornografía #Dailymotion, que cerró nuestro canal cediendo vergonzosamente a las presiones de nuestra competencia ... teníamos demasiado éxito y el baloncesto no tiene porno :) !
Es por ello que han desaparecido los vídeos de muchas publicaciones de Casos de Estudio! Estamos trabajando muy duro para recuperarlos!
Nuestras disculpas por los inconvenientes!
Alejen a sus hijos de #DailymontionArrogance !

Entonces, el mero hecho de que se produzca un contacto no significa que una falta ha sido cometida. Los jugadores pueden ponerse en contacto con otros jugadores al llegar a un balón suelto, o al realizar movimientos ofensivos y defensivos normales. La mano se considerada "parte del balón" cuando se está en contacto con el balón y el contacto con la mano del jugador cuando está en contacto con la pelota no es una falta.

En un juego general los buenos entrenadores enseñan al defensor a hacer el intento bajo la mano del atacante desde la parte delantera y sobre el lado del balón. Cuando el balón está "sin control de equipo" y con los jugadores tra él,  debería haber una interpretación más flexible de los contactos mano / muñeca hasta que el control del equipo es obtenido: por ej. una lucha que puede terminar en un salto entre dos.

En lo cambios de las reglas del 2009 fue borrado el comentario específico sobre que la mano era parte del balón ( cuando se estaba en contacto con el balón ). Sin embargo, FIBA actualmente ha vuelto a la idea de que la mano es parte del balón. La interpretación oficial de la regla es de que si el juez tiene alguna duda de dónde fue el contacto ( por ejemplo, si en la mano que está en contacto con el balón o en la muñeca ) el juez debe penar una falta.

En otros palabras, la mano es aún parte del balón, pero el juez debe tener la certeza de que el contacto del defensor fue en la parte de la mano que está en contacto con el balón. Si no está TOTALMENTE seguro, se penará falta.

Como podemos leer en este hilo: cuando la mano está en contacto con el balón ( no sólo en el lanzamiento, sino sosteniendo y dribleando el balón también ), ésta es considerada "parte del balón".

Todo contacto con una mano sobre el balón es considerado incidental y no es penalizado.
En este caso coinciden las reglas de los EE.UU. y FIBA.

Many of the videos of our Case Studies were "buried" by the #Dailymotion Pornography Channel, which closed our channel shamefully yielding to the pressures of our competence ... we were too successful and the basketball has no porn :) !
That is why the videos of many publications with Case Studies have disappeared! We are working very hard to recover them!
Our apologies for the inconvenience!
Keep your kids away from #DailymontionArrogance !



From the NBA Rules: The mere fact that contact occurs does not necessarily constitute a foul. Contact which is incidental to an effort by a player to play an opponent, reach a loose ball, or perform normal defensive or offensive movements, should not be consid-ered illegal.

If, however, a player attempts to play an opponent from a position where he has no reasonable chance to perform without making contact with his opponent, the responsibility is on the player in this position.

The hand is considered "part of the ball" when it is in contact with the ball. Therefore, contact on that hand by a defender while it is in contact with the ball is not illegal.

Section 24, Article 2 of the NFHS Handbook of Basketball Rules: It is legal use of hands to reach to block or slap the ball controlled by a dribbler or player throwing for a goal or a player holding it and accidentally hitting the hand of the opponent when it is contact with the ball.

Therefore, the mere fact that contact occurs does not mean a foul has been committed. Players are allowed to contact other players when reaching for a loose ball, or when performing normal offensive and defensive movements. The hand is considered “part of the ball” when it is in contact with the ball and contact with a players hand when it is in contact with the ball is not a foul.

In a general play good coaches teach the defender to make the attempt under the hand of the offence from the either the front and or ball side of the body. When the ball is "no team control" with players after it, there should be a more lenient interpretation on hand / wrist contacts until team control is gained: eg. a scramble that may end up in a jump ball.

In the 2009' rule changes was deleted the specific comment that the hand was part of the ball ( when in contact with the ball ). However, FIBA  has actually re-introduced the idea that the hand is part of the ball. The official interpretation of the rule is that if the referee has any doubt as to where the contact occurred ( i.e. on the hand in contact with the ball or in  the wrist) the referee must call a foul.

That's means, the hand is still part of the ball, but the official must be sure that the contact by the defender was on the part of the player's hand which was in contact with the ball. If he is not ABSOLUTELY certain, he must call a foul.

As we can read in this thread: when the hand is in contact with the ball ( not just shooting, but holding and dribbling the ball as well ), it is taken into consideration as "part of the ball".

Any contact with a hand on the ball is considered not of prime importance and is no penalized.
In this case US and FIBA rules coincide.

• Contacto con la mano sobre el balón

No hay falta, por lo tanto no hay registro estadístico en este caso.

No foul, therefore no statistical tracking in this case

• Algún juez durante un partido me explicó que "la mano es parte del balón"
• Some official explain me that "the hand is part of the ball"


( for English Translation= See Below )

Yo estuve siempre seguro de que si el jugador A hace contacto con el jugador B sobre su mano mientras B está en el acto de lanzamiento se trataba de una falta, hasta que algún juez durante un partido me explicó que no hay falta porque "la mano es parte del balón".
Pueden explicarme esta situación y si hubiera falta cuál es el registro estadístico.

I was always sure that if player A contacts player B on the hand while player B is in the act of shooting it was a foul, till some official explain me during the a game that there is no foul because "the hand is part of the ball".
Can you clear this situation and it would be foul which is the statistical tracking.
