Is it illegal if you tip the basketball to yourself 2-3 times?

One my friend is big guy If the defender surrounding him and he try tip the ball in the air couple of times to secure the rebound, would it be illegal if the ball didn’t touch the defender, rim or board

    Yes it's legal as long as the player doesn't have possession.

    It's legal as long as he doesn't have possession. That means he would have had to have held the ball. If he never held the ball, then it's fine. If he held the ball, then it counts as if he's still holding it meaning he he would need to make sure he doesn't travel in the process.
