Rules

-Standard 2 and 3 point shots apply

-Exclusive 4 point shots when a player is touching ANY PART of the “4 Point Circle”

-A shooting foul on a missed basket will reward 1 free-throw shot attempt to the shooter:

-On a 2pt attempt. Player gets 1 shot (for 2pts) from the free throw line.

-On a 3pt attempt. Player gets 1 shot (for 3pts) from the top of the 3 point line.

-On a 4pt attempt. Player gets 1 shot (for 4pts) from the top 4pt circle

-All personal fouls will be counted as team fouls: No foul outs.

-On and after the 5th team foul (per half) opponents get 2 shots and ball possession

-A technical foul results in opponent being awarded 2 free-throw shots for 2-points each and possession of the ball.

-First team to 60 Points wins

-Half-time happens after a team scores 30 Points

-Team must win by 2 Points

-Substitutions made on a dead ball or by calling time

-On a made basket, the ball is thrown to the official up top or the lead official will retrieve the ball and pass to the top. The team who was scored upon becomes the offense and the scoring team becomes the defense

-After a score (only), or missed technical foul shot, the ball must be taken out up top. After the official hands the player the ball, that player can start play dribbling in or passing it in bounds. This must be done within 5 seconds.

-Defensive rebounds (that touch the rim) MUST BE CLEARED

-The ball is cleared when the player with the ball establishes both feet behind the 3 point line. The ball can be cleared by dribbling or passing

-The defensive rebounder that makes a direct pass that clears the ball, must clear the lane and re-establish himself before his team's shot or pass hits the rim

-If a shot or pass hits the rim without being cleared it will result in a turnover

-Once a team has cleared the ball and establishes itself on offense, the normal “3 seconds in the key” rule applies

-There is no defensive "3 second" rule

-Steals do not have to be cleared

-Defensive rebounds that don’t touch the rim do not have to be cleared

-Instant replay applies

I'm legally obligated to root for Jason Williams as part of our settlement so 3 Headed Monsters are where it's at. Plus they have Rashard "Steroid Monster" Lewis and Kwame "A Scary Gay Person" Brown what's not to love? and Mahmoud "A Scary Islamic Person" Abdul Rauf too hell yeah

Cant decide if 3's Comapny or Tri-State is going to be my team. On the one hand Michael Sweetney is an alltime SAS fave. On the other hand, MIKE JAMES and Bonzie Wells chucking is life.

He may also be gay for all I know but Michael Jordan is DEFINITELY a bad person

It's all about 3's Company or Tri-State.

My secret hope is that some crazy occurrence forces Dr. J to suit up, and he just gracefully floats over everyone laying down sweet dunks. I am very detached from reality

Hey whoa whoa whoa there are more than enough reasons to dislike that talentless years-of-descent-into-drug-addled-frenzy shark-jumping hateful obnoxious catty weirdo with loud and terrible sports opinions, no need to jump right for the hard-R on the W-word!

Broadcast delay is killing me there better be some supremely competent editing on these games.

I don't think I can watch knowing that two old men got their knees injured. Someone is going to die on the court before the end of the season.
