Hey Im new here, and I started playing basketball about 2 weeks ago
#1
Hey everyone,

So I started playing basketball here in paris for the RCF, and lets say Im extremely new at this..

so much that I cant understand half of the time what the hell my coach is talking about..

For ex the other day he told me to buy compression shorts.

What the hell are compression shorts? i googled it and I found these http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compression_shorts and thesehttp://www.twenga.com/price-basketball-c...horts.htmlDoesnt help me much, cuz I still can't understand what it is... why is it expensive..

And for the 2 seconds zone, I mean seriously do they really watch everyplayer, and count two seconds..

You might think Im crazy asking you these question, but i really like this sport, but I have no idea how to play it (dont worry my coach knows hes teaching me, but there are some things he thinks I know and I have no idea... it sounds like chinese sometimes)

anyways hopesomeone out there can help me!

have a nice day!!

It doesn't look so expensive, considering you will use it all season long.

What 2 seconds zone are you talking about? I don't understand.

It minimises the risk on injury. But as long as you're not professional and young and don't mind, you can play without it.

You probably mean the 3 seconds. Attacking players can not stay more than 3 seconds in the opponents' paint. They must at least step on the line separating the paint from the rest of court once a while.

Refs don't actually count, it's rather a mechanical reaction if they see them inside the paint for a long time, or if you see attacking team's players exchanging passes or grabbing multiple rebounds in the paint, it's almost impossible to do all that below 3 seconds, so against the refs call the violation.
