Question about a self-pass (aka travelling) in streetball
Okay, I'm pretty sure about this rule but I need some confirmation. I know obviously you can't throw the ball in the air and just catch it without it touching the backboard, rim, or another player. That's an easy travel call. However, I was playing streetball today and got in a heated argument when I was driving from the left side and air-balled a runner but caught it in the air from the other side and scored. The ball went over the rim so I would consider it a shot attempt (and it was a legit shot attempt and not a dishonest attempt to gain some type of advantage). We didn't count the basket and my team still won, but I still want to know: is that a legal play?
