I dont think that you can pass to yourself unless you bounce it off someone else. If you pass to yourself it might be considered traveling.

the only way you can is to bounce it off the backboard or another player

A player may throw the ball off the backboard and catch it. However, the player must receive the pass while in the air and shoot or pass before he comes down. Otherwise, the call is traveling
