Coach Nick breaks down the major differences between the international game and the NBA. One omission is the FIBA rule that prohibits passing the ball into the back court from a sideline inbounds play that originates in the front court.

  • Who narrated this video? Did you watch the footage while talking? Most¬†embarrassingly, you say the FIBA ball is smaller than the NBA one, but in the video illustration, the FIBA ball has a larger circumference… there’s other stuff (like jokes and puns suited for school children) too, but we’ll overlook that

  • Thanks for the comment. You must’ve missed the on screen annotation that acknowledged the (understandable) mistake. I can assure you that I did watch the footage, edited it, and did all the research. If we can’t use puns for school children, then who can we use them for?
