Re: Geometry and Basketball

What would the game be like if the court were not rectangular? What if it were a trapezoid, a circle or an ellipse?
What if the basket were not round? What if it were square?
I have a hard tiem dealing with changing the shape of the ball and still being able to dribble, but you could consider different size balls.
What is the ratio of the diameter of the rim to the diameter of the ball?
