potentially benefit the accuracy of the throwing action is expected to be nonlinear and specific to the location of the basket with respect to the subject. At earlier phases of the throwing movement, to study such covariation, one has to assume a “virtual basket” moving in time, but its location (trajectory

Similarly, a study on soccer players concluded that cutting in response to virtual defensive players triggered distinct lower limb postures and knee moments. 38 In basketball games, the cutting maneuver is also often accompanied by ball dribbling. Cutting with dribbling

previous study involving 483 recreational and competitive runners reported a preferred running velocity ranging from 2.2 to 3.3 m·s −1 . 42 The attack angle of the lower limb represents the angle that is subtended from a virtual limb (typically represented as a line from the COM to the COP) to the
