PhD student and a lifetime sports enthusiast.

I have tried a large variety of ball sports, and have took training in basketball, football and tennis. Actively participate in a wide variety of sports, on a regular basis, given that the work or injuries don't interfere.

In addition to basketball and football, I play a variety of racket sports such as squash, badminton and table tennis; beach volley, futsal. I also try and follow rugby, american football, handball and track running (sprinters).

comment Penalty conversion rates: Football (soccer) vs Hockey
@SteveJessop I dont get why people get defensive. The point behind the question was to check how big of a deal penalties are in hockey, considering how rare they seem to be. My baseline in team sports is football, hence the comparison.

comment What is the origin of fans chanting players' names with an extended “u” sound?
Another example is Ruud van Nistelrooy of United, where the fans would scream "Ruuuuuud" after he scores, which confused some people since it sounds like they are booing him :) youtube.com/watch?v=-sHcp3-ka3M

comment Is the hand a part of the ball?
Not to dispute the content of the answer but how the rule is reinforced might be slightly different here in Europe, if you happen to hit the hand so much so that it hinder the ball cariers movement, it will be called a foul under FIBA regulation. Playing as a guard in high-school, I have had my fair share of fouls like that :) (PS: I'm aware that the question is tagged [nba] but just stating)

comment How can I improve my shot?
+1 for supporting foot placement. Without a a good support the shot will likely be weak and less accurate.

comment How can I improve my shot?
@DannyBland I agree that outside shot/cross/pass has a role to play in the game, and a valuable asset to have for any player. But it's perhaps not the best place to start improving/practising, that's all I am saying :)
