2. Sept. Endlich, die Basketball-Riesen sind in Berlin angekommen. Sonnabend startet Deutschland gegen Island in die EM. B.Z. erklärt, wer die. 6. Sept. Die deutschen Basketballer sind gegen den Favoriten Serbien absolut gleichwertig. Am Ende entscheidet eine Einzelaktion in letzter Sekunde. Die deutsche Basketball-Nationalmannschaft trifft in der Vorrunde der Basketball- EM in Berlin auf Spanien, Serbien, Italien, Türkei und Island.
There was a huge wave of enthusiasm, but arguably due to lack of infrastructure and professionalism, tangible results were rare.
German basketball stayed in the shadows, the next generation of youth shunning the native league while being glued to the NBA with Michael Jordan.
For the next three EuroBaskets , the national team did not come close to repeat the success. But then, German basketball got a lucky break when a lanky youth named Dirk Nowitzki tried his luck with the Dallas Mavericks and became a superstar.
He created new enthusiasm for basketball in Germany, and in his slipstream, the national team had a renaissance.
In , Germany played Turkey and was one second away from the final, when Turkey nailed a buzzer beater to send the game into overtime.
Nowitzki was also named MVP of that tourney. One year later, however, the team suffered its worst setback in years. In the EuroBasket , which was also the qualifier for the Olympic Games , the talented, but inexperienced team blundered through a tournament, blowing late-game leads with appalling anti-clutch play.
Germany was eliminated early and failed to qualify for the Olympics. Before the EuroBasket , expectations were not too high. The German roster was depleted by injury, and remembering the disaster of two years ago, nobody dared to dream of a medal.
However, an inspired Dirk Nowitzki powered the team into the finals, eliminating favourites like Spain and Slovenia on its way.
In the finals, the team was blown out by Greece , but Nowitzki was named MVP again, and the team won the election to "Team of the Year" by the German press again.
In the knock-out phase, Germany fought a tough match versus underdogs Nigeria , ending in a 78—77 win when Nigerian star Ime Udoka missed a last-second layup.
In the quarter-finals, Germany played top favorite USA , and managed to play an excellent first half, trailing only 39— In the consolation round, Germany lost 73—75 against France , losing a lead in the last 18 seconds with two turnovers.
Germany qualified for the Summer Olympics in Beijing by taking the final spot with the third place in the qualification tournament in Athens, Greece.
They were eliminated from the competition following an overtime game with Angola , and would finish with a record, beating Serbia and Jordan.
At the EuroBasket , Germany qualified for the second round with wins over Israel , Italy and Latvia , but in the second round they only managed a win over Turkey , losing to Spain and Lithuania , and failed to reach the knockout stage.
Nowitzki competed in both these tournaments and announced his retirement from the team following the EuroBasket.
Following an unbeaten qualifying campaign , Germany participated in EuroBasket Drawn in Group A, they kicked off the tournament with a surprise win over France who would later go on to win the tournament , but then suffered losses to Ukraine , Belgium and Great Britain , the latter two eliminating them from contention.
They won their final game over Israel but it was not enough, France, Ukraine and Belgium qualified from the group. Germany then qualified for the next edition of the EuroBasket in , despite a turbulent qualification which saw two defeats to Poland.
In September, following qualification, Germany was announced as one of the four new hosts of the tournament following the relocation from Ukraine.
In the same month, Dirk Nowitzki announced that he would come out of retirement to play for the team in this tournament. Roster for the EuroBasket In Germany, professional basketball is known for developing players whose parents or grandparents are immigrants.
The national team routinely uses many players who have family roots in Africa, Eastern Europe, United States or others, but have grown up in Germany, speak fluent German and are native Germans by law.
The last point is especially important, as the new FIBA rules prevent the use of more than one "naturalized" citizen per country.
Famous examples of these allochtonous players are:. While most German players develop through the club system, several players over the years have played U.
Past and present national team players who have done so include:. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. This article needs additional citations for verification.

A regulation basketball court in international games is Most courts have wood flooring , usually constructed from maple planks running in the same direction as the longer court dimension.
At almost all levels of competition, the top of the rim is exactly 10 feet 3. While variation is possible in the dimensions of the court and backboard, it is considered important for the basket to be of the correct height — a rim that is off by just a few inches can have an adverse effect on shooting.
The size of the basketball is also regulated. For men, the official ball is If women are playing, the official basketball size is In 3x3 , a formalized version of the halfcourt 3-on-3 game, a dedicated ball with the circumference of a size 6 ball but the weight of a size 7 ball is used in all competitions men's, women's, and mixed teams.
The ball may be advanced toward the basket by being shot, passed between players, thrown, tapped, rolled or dribbled bouncing the ball while running.
The ball must stay within the court; the last team to touch the ball before it travels out of bounds forfeits possession. The ball is out of bounds if it touches a boundary line, or touches any player or object that is out of bounds.
There are limits placed on the steps a player may take without dribbling, which commonly results in an infraction known as traveling.
Nor may a player stop his dribble and then resume dribbling. A dribble that touches both hands is considered stopping the dribble, giving this infraction the name double dribble.
Within a dribble, the player cannot carry the ball by placing his hand on the bottom of the ball; doing so is known as carrying the ball.
A team, once having established ball control in the front half of their court, may not return the ball to the backcourt and be the first to touch it.
A violation of these rules results in loss of possession. The ball may not be kicked, nor be struck with the fist.
For the offense, a violation of these rules results in loss of possession; for the defense, most leagues reset the shot clock and the offensive team is given possession of the ball out of bounds.
There are limits imposed on the time taken before progressing the ball past halfway 8 seconds in FIBA and the NBA; 10 seconds in NCAA and high school for both sexes , before attempting a shot 24 seconds in FIBA, the NBA, and U Sports Canadian universities play for both sexes, and 30 seconds in NCAA play for both sexes , holding the ball while closely guarded 5 seconds , and remaining in the restricted area known as the free-throw lane, or the " key " 3 seconds.
These rules are designed to promote more offense. Basket interference , or goaltending is a violation charged when a player illegally interferes with a shot.
This violation is incurred when a player touches the ball on its downward trajectory to the basket, unless it is obvious that the ball has no chance of entering the basket, if a player touches the ball while it is in the rim, or in the area extended upwards from the basket, or if a player reaches through the basket to interfere with the shot.
When a defensive player is charged with goaltending, the basket is awarded. If an offensive player commits the infraction, the basket is cancelled.
In either case possession of the ball is turned over to the defensive team. An attempt to unfairly disadvantage an opponent through certain types of physical contact is illegal and is called a personal foul.
These are most commonly committed by defensive players; however, they can be committed by offensive players as well.
Players who are fouled either receive the ball to pass inbounds again, or receive one or more free throws if they are fouled in the act of shooting, depending on whether the shot was successful.
One point is awarded for making a free throw, which is attempted from a line 15 feet 4. The referee is responsible for judging whether contact is illegal, sometimes resulting in controversy.
The calling of fouls can vary between games, leagues and referees. There is a second category of fouls called technical fouls , which may be charged for various rules violations including failure to properly record a player in the scorebook, or for unsportsmanlike conduct.
These infractions result in one or two free throws, which may be taken by any of the five players on the court at the time.
Repeated incidents can result in disqualification. A blatant foul involving physical contact that is either excessive or unnecessary is called an intentional foul flagrant foul in the NBA.
In FIBA, a foul resulting in ejection is called a disqualifying foul, while in leagues other than the NBA, such a foul is referred to as flagrant.
If a team exceeds a certain limit of team fouls in a given period quarter or half — four for NBA, NCAA women's, and international games — the opposing team is awarded one or two free throws on all subsequent non-shooting fouls for that period, the number depending on the league.
In the US college men's game and high school games for both sexes, if a team reaches 7 fouls in a half, the opposing team is awarded one free throw, along with a second shot if the first is made.
This is called shooting "one-and-one". If a team exceeds 10 fouls in the half, the opposing team is awarded two free throws on all subsequent fouls for the half.
When a team shoots foul shots, the opponents may not interfere with the shooter, nor may they try to regain possession until the last or potentially last free throw is in the air.
After a team has committed a specified number of fouls, the other team is said to be "in the bonus". On scoreboards, this is usually signified with an indicator light reading "Bonus" or "Penalty" with an illuminated directional arrow or dot indicating that team is to receive free throws when fouled by the opposing team.
Some scoreboards also indicate the number of fouls committed. If a team misses the first shot of a two-shot situation, the opposing team must wait for the completion of the second shot before attempting to reclaim possession of the ball and continuing play.
If a player is fouled while attempting a shot and the shot is unsuccessful, the player is awarded a number of free throws equal to the value of the attempted shot.
A player fouled while attempting a regular two-point shot thus receives two shots, and a player fouled while attempting a three-point shot receives three shots.
If a player is fouled while attempting a shot and the shot is successful, typically the player will be awarded one additional free throw for one point.
In combination with a regular shot, this is called a "three-point play" or "four-point play" or more colloquially, an "and one" because of the basket made at the time of the foul 2 or 3 points and the additional free throw 1 point.
Although the rules do not specify any positions whatsoever, they have evolved as part of basketball. During the early years of basketball's evolution, two guards, two forwards, and one center were used.
In more recent times specific positions evolved, but the current trend, advocated by many top coaches including Mike Krzyzewski is towards positionless basketball, where big guys are free to shoot from outside and dribble if their skill allows it.
Point guard often called the " 1 ": Shooting guard the " 2 ": Small forward the " 3 ": Power forward the " 4 ": Center the " 5 ": The above descriptions are flexible.
For most teams today, the shooting guard and small forward have very similar responsibilities and are often called the wings , as do the power forward and center, who are often called post players.
While most teams describe two players as guards, two as forwards, and one as a center, on some occasions teams choose to call them by different designations.
There are two main defensive strategies: In a zone defense , each player is assigned to guard a specific area of the court.
Zone defenses often allow the defense to double team the ball, a manoeuver known as a trap. In a man-to-man defense , each defensive player guards a specific opponent.
Offensive plays are more varied, normally involving planned passes and movement by players without the ball. A quick movement by an offensive player without the ball to gain an advantageous position is known as a cut.
A legal attempt by an offensive player to stop an opponent from guarding a teammate, by standing in the defender's way such that the teammate cuts next to him, is a screen or pick.
The two plays are combined in the pick and roll , in which a player sets a pick and then "rolls" away from the pick towards the basket. Screens and cuts are very important in offensive plays; these allow the quick passes and teamwork, which can lead to a successful basket.
Teams almost always have several offensive plays planned to ensure their movement is not predictable. On court, the point guard is usually responsible for indicating which play will occur.
Shooting is the act of attempting to score points by throwing the ball through the basket, methods varying with players and situations.
Typically, a player faces the basket with both feet facing the basket. A player will rest the ball on the fingertips of the dominant hand the shooting arm slightly above the head, with the other hand supporting the side of the ball.
The ball is usually shot by jumping though not always and extending the shooting arm. The shooting arm, fully extended with the wrist fully bent, is held stationary for a moment following the release of the ball, known as a follow-through.
Players often try to put a steady backspin on the ball to absorb its impact with the rim. The ideal trajectory of the shot is somewhat controversial, but generally a proper arc is recommended.
Players may shoot directly into the basket or may use the backboard to redirect the ball into the basket. The two most common shots that use the above described setup are the set shot and the jump shot.
The set shot is taken from a standing position, with neither foot leaving the floor, typically used for free throws, and in other circumstances while the jump shot is taken in mid-air, the ball released near the top of the jump.
This provides much greater power and range, and it also allows the player to elevate over the defender. Failure to release the ball before the feet return to the floor is considered a traveling violation.
Another common shot is called the lay-up. This shot requires the player to be in motion toward the basket, and to "lay" the ball "up" and into the basket, typically off the backboard the backboard-free, underhand version is called a finger roll.
The most crowd-pleasing and typically highest-percentage accuracy shot is the slam dunk , in which the player jumps very high and throws the ball downward, through the basket while touching it.
Another shot that is becoming common [ citation needed ] is the "circus shot". A back-shot is a shot taken when the player is facing away from the basket, and may be shot with the dominant hand, or both; but there is a very low chance that the shot will be successful.
A shot that misses both the rim and the backboard completely is referred to as an air ball. A particularly bad shot, or one that only hits the backboard, is jocularly called a brick.
The hang time is the length of time a player stays in the air after jumping, either to make a slam dunk, lay-up or jump shot. The objective of rebounding is to successfully gain possession of the basketball after a missed field goal or free throw, as it rebounds from the hoop or backboard.
This plays a major role in the game, as most possessions end when a team misses a shot. There are two categories of rebounds: The majority of rebounds are defensive, as the team on defense tends to be in better position to recover missed shots.
A pass is a method of moving the ball between players. Most passes are accompanied by a step forward to increase power and are followed through with the hands to ensure accuracy.
A staple pass is the chest pass. The ball is passed directly from the passer's chest to the receiver's chest. A proper chest pass involves an outward snap of the thumbs to add velocity and leaves the defence little time to react.
Another type of pass is the bounce pass. Here, the passer bounces the ball crisply about two-thirds of the way from his own chest to the receiver.
The ball strikes the court and bounces up toward the receiver. The bounce pass takes longer to complete than the chest pass, but it is also harder for the opposing team to intercept kicking the ball deliberately is a violation.
Thus, players often use the bounce pass in crowded moments, or to pass around a defender. The overhead pass is used to pass the ball over a defender.
The ball is released while over the passer's head. The outlet pass occurs after a team gets a defensive rebound. The next pass after the rebound is the outlet pass.
The crucial aspect of any good pass is it being difficult to intercept. Good passers can pass the ball with great accuracy and they know exactly where each of their other teammates prefers to receive the ball.
A special way of doing this is passing the ball without looking at the receiving teammate. This is called a no-look pass.
Another advanced style of passing is the behind-the-back pass , which, as the description implies, involves throwing the ball behind the passer's back to a teammate.
Although some players can perform such a pass effectively, many coaches discourage no-look or behind-the-back passes, believing them to be difficult to control and more likely to result in turnovers or violations.
Dribbling is the act of bouncing the ball continuously with one hand, and is a requirement for a player to take steps with the ball.
To dribble, a player pushes the ball down towards the ground with the fingertips rather than patting it; this ensures greater control.
When dribbling past an opponent, the dribbler should dribble with the hand farthest from the opponent, making it more difficult for the defensive player to get to the ball.
It is therefore important for a player to be able to dribble competently with both hands. Good dribblers or "ball handlers" tend to bounce the ball low to the ground, reducing the distance of travel of the ball from the floor to the hand, making it more difficult for the defender to "steal" the ball.
Good ball handlers frequently dribble behind their backs, between their legs, and switch directions suddenly, making a less predictable dribbling pattern that is more difficult to defend against.
This is called a crossover, which is the most effective way to move past defenders while dribbling. A skilled player can dribble without watching the ball, using the dribbling motion or peripheral vision to keep track of the ball's location.
A block is performed when, after a shot is attempted, a defender succeeds in altering the shot by touching the ball. In almost all variants of play, it is illegal to touch the ball after it is in the downward path of its arc; this is known as goaltending.
It is also illegal under NBA and Men's NCAA basketball to block a shot after it has touched the backboard, or when any part of the ball is directly above the rim.
Under international rules it is illegal to block a shot that is in the downward path of its arc or one that has touched the backboard until the ball has hit the rim.
After the ball hits the rim, it is again legal to touch it even though it is no longer considered as a block performed.
To block a shot, a player has to be able to reach a point higher than where the shot is released. Thus, height can be an advantage in blocking.
Players who are taller and playing the power forward or center positions generally record more blocks than players who are shorter and playing the guard positions.
However, with good timing and a sufficiently high vertical leap, even shorter players can be effective shot blockers.
Guards, for whom physical coordination and ball-handling skills are crucial, tend to be the smallest players. According to a survey given to all NBA teams, [ when?
While shorter players are often at a disadvantage in certain aspects of the game, their ability to navigate quickly through crowded areas of the court and steal the ball by reaching low are strengths.
It should be noted that players regularly inflate their height. Many prospects exaggerate their height while in high school or college to make themselves more appealing to coaches and scouts, who prefer taller players.
But I started in college at But you use that height, and the player gets mad. And then you hear from his agent.
Or you file your story with the right height, and the copy desk changes it because they have the 'official' N.
So you sort of go along with the joke. Thereafter, a player's team is solely responsible for their listed height, which can vary depending on the process selected.
On rare occasions, some players will understate their actual heights, not to be repositioned. Durants' reasoning was, "Really, that's the prototypical size for a small forward.
Anything taller than that, and they'll start saying, 'Ah, he's a power forward. The composition of race and ethnicity in the National Basketball Association NBA has changed throughout the league's history.
For the season, international players comprised The same year, the racial breakdown of the NBA was: The first non-white player entered the league in But it is a black man's game, and it will be forever.
I mean, the greatest athletes in the world are African-American," said Bird. More recently, a number of commentators have remarked on the league's dwindling number of white American players.
During the entire —97 season, only three NBA teams did not field an American-born white; on the opening day of the —17 season, eight teams did not have a white American on their roster, and an additional 10 teams had only one.
These proportions have been suggested to be the result of basketball's relatively minor importance in white American culture. As of , white interest in the NBA remains the lowest among all racial groups, with African Americans and Asian Americans spending the most time watching basketball, followed by Hispanics of any race.
Variations of basketball are activities based on the game of basketball, using common basketball skills and equipment primarily the ball and basket.
Some variations are only superficial rules changes, while others are distinct games with varying degrees of basketball influences. Other variations include children's games, contests or activities meant to help players reinforce skills.
There are principal basketball sports with variations on basketball including Wheelchair basketball , Water basketball , Beach basketball , Slamball , Streetball and Unicycle basketball.
An earlier version of basketball, played primarily by women and girls, was Six-on-six basketball. Horseball is a game played on horseback where a ball is handled and points are scored by shooting it through a high net approximately 1.
The sport is like a combination of polo , rugby , and basketball. There is even a form played on donkeys known as Donkey basketball , but that version has come under attack from animal rights groups.
Beach basketball has grown to a very popular, widespread competitive sport. Spin-offs from basketball that are now separate sports include:.
Basketball has been adopted by various social groups, which have established their own environments and sometimes their own rules.
Such socialized forms of basketball include the following. Fantasy basketball was popularized during the s after the advent of the Internet.
Those who play this game are sometimes referred to as General Managers, who draft actual NBA players and compute their basketball statistics.
Other sports websites provided the same format keeping the game interesting with participants actually owning specific players.
