"Each official should have a definite and clear conception of his overall responsibility to include the intent and purpose of each rule. If all officials possess the same conception there will be a guaranteed uniformity in the administration of all contests." (excerpt from GUIDES FOR ADMINISTRATION AND APPLICATION OF THE RULES) There are 12 rules in the "Official Rules of the National Basketball Association" beginning with a 94' by 50' court and ending with flagrant fouls to go along with 16 basic principles dealing with blocking, charging, taunting, shattered backboards and other assorted like matters as outlined on the NBA.com website.
