Gold, Silver, and Bronze medals will be handed out at the end of each game, and there will be medal counts at the end of the season to determine who's the best!
When someone scores, the ref pulls the ball out off the court, a basketball gets shot into the court and you have to chase after it!

Well the shot clock could be 36 seconds, since there is approximately 50% more floor space.

Hmmmm, don't think this would work tho. How would the pets be able to understand what they're watching?

Really interesting.

So if a technical foul is called, who goes to the FT line? The other 11 teams?

How would the tip off work? And timeouts?

How many shots would Monta Ellis jack up?
