Shootaround
In the National Basketball Association
National Basketball Association
(which is the American professional basketball league), shootaround is an informal practice session. While the practice session must be attended by the players, it does not involve all the formal elements of a regular practice. Especially absent will be normally routine conditioning drills; probably absent also will be run-throughs of plays and extensive chalk-talks by the coaches. The practice may consist largely of players practicing their shooting in an unstructured manner, with five or six players shooting at one basket, rebounding others' shots and continuing this informal type of practice — hence the term "shootaround." NBA Hall-of-Famer Bill Sharman
Bill Sharman
invented the morning shootaround as a way to burn off nervous energy on game days. He took the shootaround with him to his first coaching jobs in the ABL, ABA, and later, the NBA

League played one full season, 1961–1962, and part of 1962–1963. The league actually folded on December 31, 1962. The ABL was the first basketball league to have a three point shot for baskets scored far away from the goal. Other rules that set the league apart were a 30-second shooting clock and a wider free throw lane—18 feet instead of the standard 12.Contents1 Formation 2 George Steinbrenner 3 Jerry Lucas 4 Relocation 5 Top players 6 Rebirth 7 Complete team list 8 Year Winner Result Runner-up 9 References 10 External linksFormation[edit] The league was formed when basketball mogul Abe Saperstein

Player (game)
A player of a game is a participant therein. The term 'player' is used with this same meaning both in game theory and in ordinary recreational games. Normally, there are at least two players in a game, but one-player games exist and are collectively known as solitary games (such as the Solitaire
Solitaire
card game and many video games). "To become a player, one must voluntarily accept the rules and constraints of a game." [1] Players in competition[edit] In most games, one player (or team) is declared the winner, the player who performed the best. Some multiplayer games can have multiple winners, but in Western societies, one player (or team) is normally considered to be the "1st place", or best, among them, and tie-breaking structures are commonly used to ensure a singular "1st place". This is not true universally, however; for example, in Japan, ties are considered to be wins for both sides

Practice (learning Method)
Practice or practise is the act of rehearsing a behavior over and over, or engaging in an activity again and again, for the purpose of improving or mastering it, as in the phrase "practise makes perfect". Sports teams practise to prepare for actual games. Playing a musical instrument well takes a lot of practise. It is a method of learning and of acquiring experience. The word derives from the Greek "πρακτική" (praktike), feminine of "πρακτικός" (praktikos), "fit for or concerned with action, practical",[1] and that from the verb "πράσσω" (prasso), "to achieve, bring about, effect, accomplish".[2] In American English, practise is used as both a noun and a verb, but in British English, there is a distinction between practice, used as a noun, and practise, used as a verb (see spelling differences). Sessions scheduled for the purpose of rehearsing and performance improvement are called practises. They are engaged in by sports teams, bands, individuals, etc

Traveling (basketball)
In basketball, travelling is a violation of the rules that occurs when a player holding the ball moves one or both of their feet illegally. Contrary to wide held belief, traveling is not defined by the taking of more than 1 or 1.5 steps without dribbling the ball; it is defined rather by the illegal movement of an established pivot foot. A similar rule with the same name exists in the related sports of netball and korfball. Traveling is also called, predominantly in a streetball game, "walking" or "steps." When a player has taken 3 or more steps without the ball being dribbled, a traveling violation is called. A travel can also be called via carrying or an unestablished pivot foot. If the pivot foot of a player changes or moves, it is considered a travel and the ball handler will be penalized. The only times traveling is acceptable is during the NBA
