Definition of a "Carry"

A serious question for the experts.

When coaching and reffing kids, twas taught that ANY placing of the hand substantially below 90 degree (ie 3 O'Clock) (whilst dribbling) should be called a Carry, but I don't know if that was 100% accurate or stanted towards encouraging correct technique. Rarely see it called at pro level, so not really sure.

I don't even know if there is a specific rule that actually identified a carry? Perhaps only the rule that a dribble is ended when it comes to rest?

There's two occurrence I have seen that I question:
1) The player allows the ball to bounce above his hand, then briefly allows the ball to rest on his upturned hand, before rotating his hand/arm to the top position as the ball falls, and continuing the dribble.

2) the player allows the ball to bounce high (from a dribble) then immediately uses his hand to push the ball into a pass to another player. I THOUGHT that was only permissible with a BOUNCE pass???

There is no rule as a carry Dazz. Technically it's a double dribble. Like most of your posts.

There was someone in the NBL the other day I was watching (I think it was maybe an NZ player, can't remember), but I remember thinking a lot of the time when he dribbles it does look like a 'carry'

Weeks?

Was always taught by refs at a younger level to avoid dribbling (carrying) by turning the ball over from the side like NBA players that my friends were mimicking.

Yeah, that's why I said "Rarely see it called at pro level"

I find that interesting. The rules contain instructions for the refs to signal a Carry, but don't actually define it.
even by dazz standards this thread is wtf????
sorry, in future instead of trying to discuss actual basketball, I'll stick to making threads of "Team X is the team to beat, it's them then daylight," or making unfunded criminal allegations against random players.

yet another stupid post from an anonytroll. If you want to make fun of me, at least try to be accurate.
Yes, Demopopopolas is the first coach I have seen use the numbers that way during a time-out , but even then my comment was mostly that his players didn't seem to be able to follow what he was saying.

As I, and an Anon above said, the term is not defined in the rules. Which, ironically, you would know if you ever thought to maybe actually look the rules of the game.

@ Kloberklutz, your obsession is flattering, but it's starting to get a bit stalkerish.

IMO Weeks should get called for a carry. If Yu watch he holds the ball in his hand and takes a couple steps when trying to get around players.

Can we stop picking on every single dazz post? It's adding even less to these discussions than what he does.
