Three second rule (offensive)





Since we have a little down time between games I thought I'd revisit something that came up in one of the threads. Do you think you know the (offensive) three second rule? Do you complain about how seldom it is called? When I was a high school referee it was always amusing to see the new guys coming in and how they would talk about how they were going to enforce the three second rule and show the veterans how it should be done. Then when they learn what the rule actually is they wind up calling it just like the veterans do. Spectators at HS games used to yell at me about three seconds during a game but they weren't even close to having a legitimate complaint. I checked the NBA rules and it's pretty much the same as for HS and college. See if you can tell me what the three second rule is without looking it up. I think you'd be amazed at how many get it wrong. This is just for fun so please be honest about not looking it up.
