FAQ: FIBA basketball
What is FIBA basketball?
The International Basketball Federation (FIBA) represents national basketball organizations from around the world. It also organizes international competitions including the FIBA Basketball World Cup, the Olympic Basketball Tournament, and 3×3 basketball.
How many timeouts are allowed by FIBA basketball rules?
In FIBA basketball, teams are allowed two timeouts in first half and three in the second half (but a maximum of two timeouts in the final two minutes of the fourth quarter). Teams are also allowed one timeout per period of overtime. Timeouts last 60 seconds and cannot be carried over.
What are the dimensions of the basketball courts in FIBA games?
Courts measure 28 meters in length by 15 meters wide, measured from the inner edge of the boundary line. This is slightly smaller than current NBA and WNBA courts (28.65 by 15.24 meters). Other differences include the three-point line (6.75 metres away from the basket in FIBA, 7.24 metres in the NBA).
Is FIBA basketball different from the NBA?
There are several differences in the rules for NBA and FIBA games. For example: the size of the courts, number of timeouts, length of quarters (10 minutes in FIBA; 12 minutes in the NBA), and fouls (players are ejected after five fouls (personal and technical combined) in FIBA; NBA players foul out after six personal or two technical fouls).
Both forms of basketball use a 24 second shot clock (reset to 14 seconds after an offensive rebound). Since 2010, both the NBA and FIBA use a rectangular key or restricted area, helping to standardize the style of play between the two formats.
Is NBA bigger than FIBA?
From a fan perspective and clout, the NBA is arguable a much bigger deal. Conversations around the “GOAT” (greatest of all time) players center around the likes of Michael Jordan, LeBron James, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, and Bill Russell—all players who made their names playing in the NBA. However, some of the NBA’s biggest overseas talents have emerged from FIBA competitions, including German power forward Dirk Nowitzki (2011 NBA Finals winner and MVP) and the Dallas Mavericks’ young point guard and talisman Luka Dončić, who hails from Slovenia.
