That's Nate Robinson, he's only 5'9. Point guards in basketball are usually the shortest on the team, but 5'9 is short, even for a point guard.

Matt Devlin (the announcer you're referring to) makes a lot of stupid mistakes, this being one of them. The ball went to Toronto, not Chicago, because this is an illegal action. During a jump ball the two people involved in the actual jump are not allowed to come down with the ball. You have to tip it to your teammates. That's not even touching on the fact that you are obligated to stay in that position until the ball has been tipped outside the jump ball area.

anon is right I watch all raptors game and mat devlin ***** up a lot and in the video you can see nate walking back on defense. I'm also pretty sure that the ones taking part in the jump ball can't be the one to catch the ball regardless of who tips it.

He says Chicago ball and he's WRONG. He makes these mistakes all the time.

But hey, if all you can do is blindly believe a video: Nate Robinson funny jump ball Chicago Bulls vs Toronto Raptors

I can imagine it being a thing you can do very rarely. If the other guy sees that you're running instead of jumping, he'll just grab the ball instead of hitting it to the side. So it has to be a surpise to work. Then again, if the other guy thinks that you might do it, he might hesitate a little giving you the edge. Oh I don't know, perhaps it's done more in lower divisions.

You cannot grab the ball in a jump ball. You must nudge it in the direction of another player. However, as you can see in the picture, it is perfectly okay to not jump for the ball but instead try to catch it. In order for this to be legal you would have to land outside the circle after you've grabbed the ball. Otherwise it would count as grabbing it while still 'in' the jump ball zone.

You aren't able to catch the ball inside the center circle, but i think you can if you are outside of it.

It is a jump ball violation. Ignore these other idiots. You are required to stay within the jump circle until the ball is tipped, if you are the one jumping.

No way, Lebron James would never flop to draw a foul! And he surly would not get the call if he flopped anyway.
