    No one on this board should get number 4 wrong.

    Those are pretty inane questions:

    16. Player A1ís pass from the foul line to Player A2 in the corner is deflected into Team Aís basket. The deflection occurs after the horn sounds on the shot clock. The basket shall count.
    Uh, has this ever happened before? I want film.

    A real NBA officiating test would include the following:

    Q: A player takes 5 steps without dribbling, but makes a SportsCenter-worthy dunk. Do you call travelling?

    A: Of course not. ESPN makes the world go 'round.

    Q: There is a 20-foul disparity between the losing and winning team. When do you start calling makeup fouls on the winning team to make the box score look better?

    A: If the lead is 10+ points, 2:30 left to go, or whenever the margin hits 21 points, whichever comes first.

    Bonus Shaquille O'Neal section:

    Q: If Shaq is in the paint, how long do you give him until you call a 3-second violation?

    A: n/a (you don't ever call a 3-second violation on Shaq.)

    Q: Shaq has just broken an opposing player's hand/wrist/arm/foot/back/teeth. Do you call a foul?

    A: Yes, on the opposing player.

    Q: Multiple choice. Shaq has just received his 5th foul in a playoff game. He initiates contact with another player that impedes his movement with the ball. By reflex, you blow your whistle. What do you do?

    a) Call the foul on Shaq.
    b) Call the foul on the opposing player.
    c) Check with the sidelines to verify Shaq already has five fouls, then call the foul on the opposing player.
    d) Call incidental whistle, no foul, inbound to resume play.
    e) b, c, or d

    Actually, some of those questions i have never seen/heard those things occure in any of my games or any NBA game, didnt even know rules like that exist in NBA. But you have to think up insane rules like that before it happens, you have to know how to judge and be prepared when it occures... thats pro officiating!

    What happens if player A1 passes the ball but it hits an (inbounds) official's head and is deflected to player A2 in "alley-oop" fashion... Player A2 proceeds to score: Does the basket count????

    What happens if time is expiring in this situation?

    No, but "passes to the man and the man shoots" occurs before time expires, but not before the 24 second clock expires, however the whistle blows for a defensive 3 second call before "boom goes the dynamite."

    I even knew there were 6 False questions and still only got a 12.

    12/20.

    I was giving serious consideration to just guessing after the first 8 questions because it was giving me a serious .

    I have a question for BC: Just how stupid are Celtic fans that they have to be told that if the incorrect answer is false then the correct answer is true?
