Defensive three seconds is a violation that is unique to the NBA. The aim of the defensive 3-second rule is to make it easier for players to get to the rim do plays that will enhance the entertainment value of the game. The regulation stipulates that defenders, while in the key, should actively be guarding an opponent.
This violation is generally committed by the defense team’s player. The player illegally interferes with a shot on the rim or on a downward path to the hoop. Usually the penalty for this violation results in the shot by the offense team being assumed in and they receive a basket. Hand Check. This is a personal foul done by the defense team player.
During a free throw shot, players will line up on both sides of the lane. If they jump into the lane prior to the shot, it will be called a lane violation. If it was an offensive player, a made shot will not count. If it was a defensive player, a missed shot will not count and the shooter will get another try.
Lane violations, otherwise known as 'defensive three seconds,' occur when a defensive player is caught standing in the painted area without actively guarding an opposing player. When a referee stops play to call a three-second violation, the team on offense is given a foul shot followed by possession of the ball.
A defensive three-second violation, also known as illegal defense, is a basketball rules infraction in the National Basketball Association (NBA). It is assessed when a member of the defending team spends more than three seconds in the free throw lane (also called the key, the 16-foot lane, or "the paint") while not actively guarding an opponent. To be considered actively guarding an opponent, a defender must be within arm's length of an opponent and must be in a guarding position.
