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.
Actually, this is a yes and a no question. The NBA rule book specifically states that a player in control the ball while dribbling may not step out of bounds and re-enter the 'in-bounds' area of the court and quote he may not even be the first player to touch the ball end quote. However, the rule book does not convey the language for a 'loose ball'. In the event of a errant pass or loose ball a player may in fact prevent the ball from leaving the 'in-bounds' area and step out of bounds and if possible re-enter the 'in-bounds' area and be the first player to touch/gain control/pass/dribble the ball and play is continued. I have officiated the game in my college days and spoken to many retired and current officials of the game who conquer it's a judgment call to begin with and very rare but carries both an illegal violation along with a legal play provided no player has control of the ball while flirting with the out of bounds lines anywhere on the court.
If goaltending was legal, the sport that it would be legal in would be basketball. Goaltending is when a defensive player misdirects the ball from going through the hoop when the ball is on its way down through the hoop. When the ball is on its way up to the hoop, it is legal to misdirect it. Also when the ball has hit the backboard of the hoop it is not allowed to be touched or misdirected, because that is also considered goal tending, and if goaltending was taken out of the game of basketball then players would be able to touch the ball when it is in the air whenever they would like, and there would most likely not be as high of scoring as their is in basketball today if it was legal.
Yes, it is very legal in many states of America and countries. As long as it isn't inside their house or in their backyard, it is legal. If their basketball hoop is in front of their house eg. their garage driveway. It is technically legal to use their basketball hoop. It is legal in all states of America except Nevada and New Jersey. In other countries such as Europe, Australia and some parts of South America, it is also legal. Hope this helped.
