That is a very good read.

I had a question regarding the defensive 3 seconds rule. Most guys in the NBA who guard the paint normally have the reach to be able to touch their man stationed outside the paint, while still being in the painted area. So I thought they were in a legal defensive position in the paint.

But after this read, I understand why I always saw guys getting defensive 3'd up all the time.

Forearm Fouls:
A defender may not be in contact with an extended forearm to an offensive player with the ball at any time above the free throw line extended. Below the free throw line extended and outside the lower defensive box, a defender may use an extended forearm to the back/side of an opponent with the ball to maintain his legally obtained position. Inside the lower defensive box, a defender may use an extended forearm at anytime to maintain his position against a payer with the ball. At no time may the forearm be used to dislodge, reroute or impede the offensive player.

Hear is a foul rule that ref's can make a call and players go 'what?'

good read

Yeah I never really thought about that rule, as it doesn't seem to ever be enforced.

Nice read. Good thing that NBA.com has this kind of articles and isn't entirely made of crap.

I had indeed a misunderstanding of a couple of rules there

Defensive 3 second is still the biggest piece of crap ever but still a good arcticle.
