Pass leading to someone going to the line should be an assist (regardless of free throw made or not).

What if the opposing team is intentionally fouling to send someone to the line? It gets murky in that situation.

11 is no longer a rule

Damian Lillard wore #0 while Enes Kanter wore #00 for the Blazers just this past season.

Seriously no complaints on NBA rules after spending 10 days watching FIBA world cup extensively. Their rules are absolutely ridiculous (and I am not talking about clearing the ball on the rim after free throws). The plays they call illegal fouls (with two fouls and the ball) is really comical. Or the play (from today's game US vs Serbia) where Serbian center was called a foul while trying to stop put-back and while at it was called illegal second and as a result US got 4 free throws and a ball?!?!

Always thought about this. Is it legal play when you are inbounding the ball and throw it off the ground and it goes in?
