PBA slowly adjusting to FIBA Rules

durden_tylerdurden_tyler Member PExer
i do believe this warrants its own thread (and not the main PBA thread) because it tackles a very specific topic especially regarding the issue of PBA vs. FIBA rules--- it's been used and abused to the extent that some people are disregarding some facts.

There are still obvious differences of course (5 fouls vs. 6 fouls, 40 minutes vs. 48 minutes) but you have to admit the recent changes is a start and will (especially) help the Smart Gilas team which is set to play this conference in the PBA--- not to mention, adjusting to FIBA rules which is what everyone wants the PBA to do.

The article from that thread:
The Board likewise opened the gates for another round of rules changes, particularly in terms of physical contact during the game, and was looking forward to its Hall of Fame Awards where the PBA will elevate seven individuals.


Alvarez said that the referees will be more relaxed with regards to physical contact. Likewise, the three-point line will be restored to its previous distance of 22 feet, one foot and six inches farther from the former distance of 20 feet and six inches. Another change of note, among others, is the tolerance of swatting the ball away once it hits the back-board.

These rules, though, will be first tested during the pre-season tournament that begins on Sept. 25 at the Cuneta Astrodome before it will be officially implemented.
The league will also revert back to the rectangular shape of the shaded lane from the trapezoid, allow players to hang on to the rim after a dunk, ease up on the "landing spot rule" and declare live a ball that hit the top of the backboard.

And from this LINK:
OFFICIAL BASKETBALL RULES 2010:

The below mentioned rule amendments will come into effect as follows:

• For high level competitions/Level 1 (main FIBA official competitions: i.e. Olympic Tournaments, World Championships for Men and Women, U19 and U17 World Championships for Men and Women and Zone/Continental Championships for Men and Women): as of 1st October 2010, i.e. after the 2010 FIBA World Championship.

• For medium level competitions/Level 2 (i.e. all other FIBA official competitions and the high level competitions of the national federations): as of 1st October 2012, i.e. after the London 2012 Olympic Games.

Art. 2.2.3 Free-throw lines and restricted areas

The restricted areas shall be the floor rectangle areas marked on the playing court.

The restricted (three-second) area shall be a rectangle (not anymore a trapezoid) as per Diagram 1 below.


Art. 2.2.4 Three-point field goal area

The distance of the three-point line shall be 6,75 m (and not 6,25 m as present).

Art. 2.2.6 Throw-in side lines

The two (2) small lines shall be marked outside the court, on the opposite side of the scorer’s table and the team bench areas, with the outer edge at the distance of 8,325 m from the inside edge of the end lines; in other words, level to the top of the three-point line.

During the last two (2) minutes of the game and of the extra period, following the time-out granted to the team that has been entitled to the possession of the ball from its backcourt, the subsequent throw-in will be taken on the opposite side of the scorer’s table from the “throw-in side line” and not as presently from the centre line extended.

Art. 2.2.7 No-charge semicircles

The no-charge semicircles shall be marked on the playing court, under the baskets. The distance of the inner edge of the semicircles shall be 1,25 m from the centre of the basket (on the floor).

A charging (offensive) foul should never be called if the contact by the offensive player is with the defensive player standing within the no-charge semicircle.

Art. 29 Twenty-four seconds

If the throw-in is to be administered in the backcourt, if required by the respective rules, the 24 second device shall be reset to 24 seconds.

If the throw-in is to be administered in the frontcourt, if required by the respective rules, the 24-second device shall be reset as follows:

- If 14 seconds or more are displayed on the 24-second device at the time the game was stopped, the 24-second device shall not be reset and shall remain the same.

- If 13 seconds or less are displayed on the 24-second device at the time the game was stopped, the 24-second device shall be reset to 14 seconds.

Slowly but surely, we will get there.

    will fiba also institute a no-charge semi-circle?
  • Yes. From the same link:

    Art. 2.2.7 No-charge semicircles

    A charging (offensive) foul should never be called if the contact by the offensive player is with the defensive player standing within the no-charge semicircle.
  • This is good not only for Smart Gilas but also for future generations of Filipino ballers who watch the PBA.

    Hope the UAAP, NCAA, and even the weekend pickup games would follow suit.

    I'm sure this would be a bit confusing at first. People would complain that its goal-tending. Players would be slow to rebound the ball that hit the top of the backboard and of course the level of physicality. Just keep the calls consistent and the players and coaches would adjust.
  • i watched the quarterfinals game of fiba europe this morning - turkey vs greece. there were 1-2 calls na goal interference / goal tending. weird.

    also, noticed that hindi sila gaano tumatawag ng illegal pick/screen. i noticed na kahit gumagalaw ang nag set ng pick, basta finight ng depensa automatic foul yung depensa.

    have you guys read the new rules for the next season?
    its veering away from fiba rules

    like the 3pt line to 22ft, the rectangular shaded lane, no harm no foul
    the 'jab-step' move

    allow players to hang on to the rim after a dunk

    I like this change. For players to void injuries, and also it adds excitement to the game.

  • PBA modifies rules for incoming season
    (The Philippine Star) Updated September 21, 2009 12:00 AM

    MANILA, Philippines - The Philippine Basketball Association is bringing out the compass to retrace its original three-point line, extending the circumference of the rainbow arc from 20.6 feet to where Allan Caidic drained a league record 17 triples 18 years ago – 22 feet away from the basket.

    Prompted by its mandate to form the national team, the PBA reduced its three-point area several years back to conform with the internationally-accepted standard and familiarize its players with the regular FIBA launching spots.

    But having completed its commitment after Powerade-Team Pilipinas’ eighth-place finish in the 25th FIBA-Asia Men’s Championship in Tianjin, China, and with the Samahang Basketbol ng Pilipinas taking over, the PBA moved to revert to the 22 feet three-point area as part of a number of rule changes and modifications it is instituting for the 35th season.

    As released by Rickie Santos, PBA operations and technical committee chief, the following guidelines will be observed starting with the Philippine Cup which kicks off Oct. 11:

    •The 24-second violation will be ignored if the opposing team has clear possession of the basketball.

    •All parts of the backboard are considered in play when struck by the ball except the back of the backboard, which is not in play.

    a. The ball is considered out of bounds if the ball hits the top of the board and passes directly behind the backboard from any point.

    b. The ball is considered out of bounds if the ball hits the top of the board and then hits the game clock, shot clock, support or any device above the backboard.

    c. It is considered a violation attempting a field goal directly behind the backboard.

    d. Any ball that rebounds and goes over the top and passes directly behind the backboard without hitting any part of the board is considered out-of-bounds.

    • Hanging on the rim after a dunk is now allowed (monkey ride).

    • Landing spot rule:

    a. If without contact, Flagrant Foul Penalty 1 is called - two free throws are awarded, ball possession is retained by team of offended player, guilty player sits for three playing minutes.

    If with contact, Flagrant Foul Penalty 2 is called – two free throws are awarded, team of offended player retains ball possession, and guilty player is ejected from the game. Automatic fine of minimum P10,000. Minimum of one day suspension if contact resulted in dire consequence (i.e. injury to player resulting in inability to play).

    • The shaded lane returns to the rectangular shape from the trapezoid.

    • A tip-in is considered act of shooting.

    • A player screening an opponent must have both feet on the floor when contact occurs. A player setting a screen can move his body into a new but equal position sideways provided his shoulders are directly squared with his foot.

    The screener cannot lean forward towards the defender or extend any part of his body (i.e., extending an arm, leg or hips) in attempting to impede the basketball defender’s movement in covering his man.

    Pushing or bumping is illegal personal contact of an opponent in which a defensive player forcibly moves or attempts to move a shooter, cutter or dribbler wherein the offensive player is placed at a disadvantage. A foul will be called if the defender bumps 1) a shooter, 2) a cutter, 3) a dribbler who loses the ball.

    Falling down to fake a foul (flopping) will not be tolerated. Referees will now give a warning on the first infraction. Subsequently, a technical foul will be given on the next violation.

    Pretty much what was first discussed except for the last parts which include a rule that should be named: "Ronald Tubid Rule"

    Arwind Santos. *okay*
  • KevinDurantKevinDurant Member ✭✭✭
    the refs not buying it, that's the best way to lessen flopping. They look like fools at times. If a player flops, a no call is a good thing to consider. The flopper will lose his position and the offensive player will have the advatage. With this, the defensive player will have to think about it the next time.
  • pang bading lang nag pa flop!

    tama, di sila gaano tumatawag ng off. foul sa illegal screen sa euro basket, same then sa hand check..

    last conference panget talaga ng tawagan sa PBA. masyado maselan.
