with an opponent. Also, a flagrant foul. It is considered the
most serious foul in Basketball. It is when you use illegal
contact with a player and can inflict pain on an other.
There is a shot clock too. It
indicates that you have to shoot within a curtain amount of
time. In the NBA you have to shoot within 24 seconds. Also in
