    That rule is necessary I would use free throw attempts like timeouts if the rule wasn’t there

      This is a rule in high school as well. I've had to make this call as an official. It was probably closer to 12-13 seconds, but then like, yeah...

        Karl Malone on finals vs Bulls. He would shoot it at 10 second mark

          Karl Malone had the same problem

              Well, he proclaimed Dwight Howard as 'my dude's, so now I understand why he may not know the rules.

                is it a rule that no one can do a jump shot during a free throw ... no one ever dribbles, then takes a jump shot.. everyone has both feet on the ground .. this has to be a rule

                      Only reason I know this rule is because if you wait long enough in NBA2k of any year, they'll automatically shoot the ball after 10 seconds, even if you don't touch the controller

                            Smokey Yunick Daytona cheating. All day. Dude had multiple rules written due to his muddling in the grey area. Amongst his greatest exploits would be using 11 feet of 2” diameter fuel line to gain a 5 gallon advantage over the competition.

                              It said "he" in the rule. For the purposes of your free throw, just identify as female and take as long as you need. Tada!

                                Karl Malone took more than ten seconds a lot during his career.

                                    Just do it. That’s good. We should copyright that.

                                    Ten seconds later

                                    Nike: Yeah, that’s our thing.

                                          I like to imagine the first basketball game ever played never ended, cause the losing team took so long on a free throw when they realized they would lose.

                                                        this is the karl malone rule, i think

                                                          I remember laker fans yelling a 10 second countdown with Karl Malone on the line.

                                                            So the rule stipulates that you must take the shot within 10 seconds of controlling the ball, right? What if you never control the ball? What if you just refuse to catch it when the ref passes or hands it to you?
