Basketball

Basketball is one of the finest games the world has today. It does not have the provision of playing individually rather it is a team sport. Herein, two teams that generally comprise of five members on each team; play against one another on a court. This court is rectangular in shape.
The goal is to get the ball through a hoop which is situated at a considerable height on a backboard. Each team has its own hoop that is placed on the opponent teams’ side. The goal of the opponent team is to throw and get the ball past the hoop as many times as possible for them to score higher whereas the other team needs to defend their hoop. Every basket means two points taken by the team who secured the basket. There are various other positions that can be used to score and score higher too.
There are a number of terms that are used extensively in a game of basketball. They are as follows:
Blocking which literally stands for forced or illegal physical contact on the part of one person who tries to slow down the approach of a person from the other team who is not in possession of the ball.
Dribble stands for the movement of the ball by bouncing it against the court. The moment both hands of the player hold the ball simultaneously; dribble comes to an end.
Jump Ball is typically when the ball is put to play. The ball is tossed up by the referee of the game, high in the air, between two people; one from each team. At this moment, each opponent tries to snatch or tap the ball in the direction of their teammate. This is usually done to begin the game and at instances, where players of both teams are in possession of the ball at the same time.
Pass simply means the act of throwing or rolling the ball to another member of the game. In this, we have a subdivision of the types of passes that are available to the players. They are as follows:
1) Bounce Pass which is exactly what its name suggests. It is a defensive move by which a player rolls down the ball on the floor to get past the member of the opponent team.
2) Baseball Pass which is similar to a one-hand baseball throw. This involves a ball being thrown from a long distance with utilizing only one hand.
3) Chest Pass involving releasing of the ball in hand from a position which is in front of the chest of the player.
4) Hook Pass which involves passing of the ball by the side or over the head.
5) Roll Pass as the name suggests by rolling in the floor
Pivot: A position wherein the player (who is in possession of the ball) takes a step or two in any direction in order to figure what to do next. But at this moment, his or her other foot (pivot foot) is supposed to stay at the original position which is in contact with the floor.
Pivot Player is another name for the centre player or the post player.
Rebound is more like a cry for help. When both the teams are unable to basket; they put their brains together to get the ball in possession somehow. But in this case, the ball cannot go out-of-playing-area and shall remain in play.
Turnover which refers to the scenario where the player loses the possession of the ball in lieu of rule-breaking.
