This was something different to read at least.
Number 1 was the most interesting to me. I always wondered what would happen if there was a horrific accident were to happen to a team. The NBA has a rule.
This is by far the craziest written rule the NBA will ever have, and it is rather genius. If a tragic accident were to happen in which five or more players from a team were to die, an emergency disaster draft would be held. Each of the other teams would only be allowed to protect five players, and the team affected by the disaster would be able to draft from the pool leftover from the teams. This is sort of the expansion style type draft, but with far less players protected by the other teams due to the severity of the situation. The fact that the NBA has a contingency plan if this were to happen is crazy, and hopefully will never have to be enacted. This rule was put in place due to the almost catastrophe of the 1960's Lakers, were ten players almost died in a heavy snow storm. The pilot was able to somehow land in the middle of a cornfield, avoided a complete disaster, as well as the first disaster draft.
