Why is it legal to throw the ball off of another player when you are about to fall out of bounds in basketball?
Because the play is called a pass or a save and is always legal. The rule that applies most is the one that states that possession goes to the other team when a player touches the ball last prior to landing out of bounds. Moreover, it takes skill to place the ball on the opposing player with sufficient velocity and in such a way as to insure he will not be able to gather it up and cost YOU a change of possession.

However, the rule book does not convey the language for a 'loose ball'. In the event of a errant pass or… Read More
Can you run out of bounds to get around someone and come back in bounds to continue play during a game of basketball?
During the course of play, as long as you reestablish legal position on the court prior to receiving the ball play continues without penalty. An inbounds play may be a different case. I believe you cannot be the first one to touch the inbounded ball if you go out of bounds to shake a defender.

Yes, but only for a total of 3 seconds at a time.
No, there must be reasonable doubt that the first ball is either out of bounds or lost for a second shot to be able to be hit.
A double dribble is when the person with the ball picks up the ball and stops dribbling it. After the person stops dribbling the ball, the person starts again without another person handling the ball. A legal dribble must never stop. The ball must be continually bounced and once the ball stops bouncing the player can not dribble again.
Yes it is legal, but not very smart, because the defense can easily steal the ball when it is dribbled above the waist.
