You're about to be hit with a T, this needs to be on the college side.

It’s not a T in the college game.

Dunking is allowed as long as you stop once the official come to the court. I think it may be a safety issue, checking with a referee friend to find out.

I think the rule came in somewhere around the time that Daryl Dawkins was shattering backboards not built to survive such onslaughts. Safety was a concern as was the cost and convenience of replacing a demolished board. Just my recall, no facts.

A backboard isn't less likely to break with the officials out there watching warmups.

 

I do agree that is why the rule is in place, but I think it is antiquated.

I am not personally familiar with the vertical game around the rim. For many reasons I kept my game below the net level. My question is do many players get injured on uncontested warmup dunks? Understand the perils of being undercut, etc during game action; but, during warmups? Just seems to me warmups should be a coach’s decision....not a rule calling for a T.

Can the refs video-review whether the player dunked or not? If a T, does it count as a personal foul against the player?

Referees come onto the floor with 15 minutes left before the game starts. That usually gives players 5 to 10 minutes to dunk before the referees makes an appearance.

What’s the difference in those 5-10 minutes and the next 10-15?

Who cares if the officials are on the court? This rule is big time fun police.
