probably a pretty usual question. In the nba, if the ball bounces turn off the peak of the backboard, is that still inbounds or the end of bounds? go it depend on which side of the backboard that lands (front or back)? many thanks to all.

You are watching: Is the top of the backboard out of bounds

It"s a myth that a sphere that hits the optimal is OOB. The round is not OOB, under NBA, NCAA, or NFHS rules, if the ball hits the optimal of the backboard. It"s OOB if the goes over the top, touch a support, rope, cable, shooting clock, etc., or hits the earlier of the backboard.
Just prefer high school, 5 sides the the backboard (top, bottom, left side, right side, front) space inbounds. In HS, if the sphere goes end the peak of a rectangle-shaped backboard, it"s OOB, whether or not it struggle the top an initial (sometimes it hits the rim and also then go over). In the NBA, if the ball attempts to go over the top, it will hit the 24 second clock and this puts it OOB.
Let me add another NBA twist. Unless the sphere goes directly over the backboard, it"s tho in play. Snapshot the square top top the board. If it goes out directly over that, it is out. Yet if the round goes over at an angle to either corner, it"s play on!

I constantly thought the was a weird rule. What angle must the round go end at to be legal? 45 degrees? 50 degrees? 21 degrees? If it goes over, it goes over.
How around this twisted from the same rule: the sphere is additionally considered to be OOB if that passes straight behind the backboard. For this reason if you throw a pass from one corner on the baseline to the other edge on the baseline and it goes behind the backboard, TWEET, OOB! Wierd! (Rule 8 section II-b).

Welcome to the site, coach!
This is among those basketball myths. Unfortunately, too many officials believe the myth as well.
