          Weird Rule Suggestion: To play off the NBA rule on fouling out, high school basketball has a rule that I'd say is a bit weirder.

          From the 2019-20 version of the NFHS Basketball Rule Book it says in Rule 3 Article 1 Section 1 that each team consists of 5 players.
          NOTE: A team must begin the game with 5 players, but if it has no substitutes to replace disqualified or injured players, it must continue with fewer than 5. When there is only 1 player participating for a team, the team shall forfeit the game, unless the referee believes that team has an opportunity to win the game.

          Due to the wording, in high school basketball, you can theoretically have a game of 5 on 1 or even 1 on 1.

              they could legit build a strategy off this rule. have 5 really aggressive street ballers. have all your normal players take "injures" and then have the 5 street players just throw elbows and run over the other team.

                I could see it... Westbrook the first person ever to record a quintuple double!
                25 points / 10 assist / 10 rebounds / 10 steals and 10 fouls.

                  Thinking about this rule again, it's not entirely impossible to have less than 5 players on the court (in the NBA).
                  For Example, let's say everyone on the bench got ejected (fighting) or too injured to play. After that, another player gets ejected (fighting) or too injured to play.
                  What would happen then? I'm actually pretty curious. Is there rule if that happens?

                    Hold up hold up hold up. In another video there's a rule that a player can't get 3 technical fouls. But what if a team has only five players left? I looked it up, and the rule is that the player who most recently fouled out would come back into the game if someone got ejected. But what if two Lakers had gotten ejected? Would the first player to get ejected come back in to replace the second player to get ejected?

                          This could be abused in a practical way, if your star player fouls out late in a close game or in overtime what's to stop the coach from just saying his whole bench is injured. "Quick guys everyone collapse to the floor writhing in pain."

                                  If you beat up their entire team then they can’t shoot anymore free throws and thus you can win 100% of the time.

                                    Draymond Green has his opportunity. Most of his teammates are injured.

                                    I remember this game! Only through ejections can a team have less than 5 on the court. The game crew actually knew the rules here.

                                      To keep your best player(s) from fouling out near the end of a game, could you file team suspensions mid-game to all your other bench players, then finish the game with your best five players, including the player(s) that would have fouled out?

                                        I did this in NBA Live (I think it was '96 or '97 or something). I fouled out so many players that I couldn't substitue any other players. So the fouls just kept on racking up without any of my players having to leave the game. At that time I thought it was a game designer choice because they couldn't really implement what would happen in real life. Turns out, the game designers implemented it correctly after real life...

                                            Probably a (justifiable) bench-clearing brawl and a rule change the following year to avoid such shenanigans

                                            This is the rule I was basically talking about! It happened to the warriors in Curry's rookie year

                                              Interesting... when this scenario happened to my team (middle-school-ish timeframe travelling team), the player just fouled out normally and we continued on with 4 people. Finally got to play a box zone without the "and one". I wonder if the rule book is different for the NCAA / other levels of play than for the NBA (similar to 5 vs 6 personal fouls).

                                                But the other team would still be shooting free throws and your team would probably be getting beat pretty badly. What would the point of being able to foul without being ejected? They would probably get fined by the league if it was obvious that they were taking liberties.

Alabama's players on the bench were all thrown out when they left the bench. Alabama had just the 5 guys on the floor, next minute a player fouls out and another rolls an ankle. Alabama played 5 vs 3 for 1/2 the 2nd half and outscored my Gophers. Gophers still won but it was ridiculous to watch.

Only have five players play the whole game and literally foul the guy every time he touches the ball.
