Riddle: In the NBA, how many men are on the basketball court for each team?
Basketball is played with two teams, with 5 players from each team on the court at one time. The maximum number of players on the bench differs by the league. In international play, a maximum of 7 players is allowed on the bench, resulting in a roster of 12 players.
In NBA, the number of players on the bench can go upto 10 players. So the total number of the team players can be 15. However, 5 of them are on the court. Not all of them!
10 players are on the court but there are two different teams. So 5 players for each team in this riddle.
Easy! Just requires slight attention.
Answer: Five, not ten!
