    Just some pre-game empty chatter... but what do you think is the most obscure NBA rule out there? I think this one wins the prize (and in no way trying to be condescending towards the people that didn't think Westbrook committed a backcourt violation) --

    Rule 10
    Section XIII-Illegal Assist in Scoring

    a. A player may not assist himself to score by using the basket ring or back-board to lift, hold or raise himself.
    b. A player may not assist a teammate to gain height while attempting to score.
    PENALTY: Loss of ball. The ball is awarded to the opposing team at the free throw line extended.​

    lol I was just picturing those moves people do in street ball where someone will get on all fours and their teammate will hop off their back and dunk it

    Can you use the OTHER team to gain height while attempting to score? Bullard says you can. But at what point does it become an offensive foul?
