The weird rules of North Korean basketball

Kim Jong Un loves basketball. He loves it so much that he dramatically changed the scoring rules of the game. Instead of just normal 2 point shots, 3 pointers and free throws, here’s the scoring changes if you were playing basketball in the People’s Democratic Republic:

– Slam dunks are worth three points (up from two)
– Field goals in the final three minutes of the game are worth eight points (up from two)
– Three-pointers are worth four if the ball doesn’t touch the rim
– A point is deducted for missed free throws
