If a player has not dibbled yet. Jumps in the air and drops the ball and starts to dribble after landing: is this
traveling ? Turnover ?


The Rule=
It is traveling. The player must pass or attempt a try for goal after leaving the floor. It is illegal to move the pivot foot before starting a dribble .

eBA Basketball Statistics Tracking=
We record 'Turnover', forced or unforced depending upon the opponent action.

From the eBA System=
When the turnover does occurs or when a bad shot is forced during an ON BALL screen situation, that's means there is a direct influence of an opponent action: the eBA Basketball Statistics Creative Analysis System  (external link) refers to it as a FORCED TURNOVER. When the turnover does occur WITHOUT any opponent influence or interference: a bad pass you YOURSELF throw out of bounds, we call it an UNFORCED TURNOVER.

The value of the turnover, doesn't vary in our metric, being the same for both types, but the eBA System report give to the coach the total quantity and percentages of Forced and Unforced Turnovers by separate, leading so to a deeper analysis of our possessions.
