The correct answer to this question is C, An Infraction Of The Rules By A Player, Coach. Fouls are in the sport of basketball. They occur in every basketball game, and everyone from players to fans disagrees on the way fouls are handed out. The most common foul is through physical contact when a defensive player makes illegal contact to the offensive player.

It can also occur through verbal language, like if a player or coach curses at a referee. Another type of foul is a technical foul. This is worst than the standard foul. There are limits on fouls. A player can be ejected after six fouls, and if they get two technical fouls, they can also be ejected.

There could be many correct answers to this question as it depends on the context of the question. One would need more context to know the correct answer. If it is regarding one's personal preference, the answer will vary. I would say the current best passer in the NBA is Lebron James.

He has a good eye for when others are open on the court. He does this at the same time he is dodging defensive players. Having an eye for what is open on the court allows the ball to be passed to someone free so that they can shoot the ball and make the score.

Though they may disagree on a lot, I think many experts and analysts would agree that Lebron James is still the best player in the NBA. Though he and his teammates on the Los Angeles Lakers didn't make the playoffs last year, through each game, Lebron James shows that he is the best player in the world.

During this 2019 offseason, he is showing that he isn't just the best physically, but also from a business standpoint. This is because he is bringing key players to the Lakers to get him another championship. Those players include Anthony Davis and Demarcus Cousins.

The correct answer to this question is Pivot. This skill is used in the sport of basketball. It involves the player rotating the ball around the pivot foot. Pivoting is essential because it allows a player to avoid the defensive player. It also allows the player to find an open spot in the court so that they can take a shot. Like all basketball skills, there are rules for it.

One is that the player can rotate around the pivot foot. Another rule is that the player shouldn't lift the foot that they pivot off the floor. One of the most important ones is that the player shouldn't hold the ball for more than five seconds. If it is longer than five seconds, the defense will gain possession of the ball.

The correct answer to this question is Technical Foul. The sport the referee is refereeing in the picture shown is basketball. There are many reasons, both physical and verbal, for why a technical foul should be called. One is when a player does a hard play on another play. A technical will become a flagrant foul when it is seen as intentional.

Another reason a player may get a technical foul is for arguing with another player or a referee. Along with players, a coach can also receive a technical foul. One reason a coach would get a technical foul is for leaving the coaching area to complain. Another reason is when a coach chooses to curse at a referee.
