if they dont touch them its neither, but if they touch its a personal

The above answer is incorrect. It is a technical foul at all levels through college to face guard an opponent (except in the NBA which allows eye guarding).

no. no way acctually it is perfectly leagal to do that. as long as your hands dont make contact with the player shooting, you can do it all game long. in fact it is a good stategy to use if you are contesting a shot from a taller player. The first answer is correct. The second answer is incorrect. It is a technical foul to face guard a player at all levels through college. However, it is allowed to an extent in the NBA (eye guarding is allowed).

It can be hard to face personal challenges. The best way to face personal challenges is for the person to realize this challenge will not go away, and dealing with it will make them a better person.
