A player has not yet dribbled, throws the ball against a backboard and catches it again before the ball has touched another player. This player can begin a dribble.... ?


Rule Fundamental:
If a player deliberately throws the ball against a backboard ( not attempting a legitimate shot for a goal ), this is considered the same as if that player has bounced the ball on the floor. If the player then touches the ball again before it has touched ( or been touched
by ) another player, this is considered to be the same as a dribble.

Game Rule:
After catching the ball ( ball comes to rest in his hands ) the player in this case may shoot or pass but may not begin a new dribble.

Of course, neither FGA nor rebound are recorded.
In case the player in this case makes a new dribble has committed a violation and we record an unforced turnover .
