Is a drop kick worth three points like a field goal in football?

A drop kick is still on the books as a legal way to score three points, or one point, in the NFL, depending on when it is used. If the drop kick is used during normal gameplay (downs 1 through 4), when your team has the ball, it is worth three points, just like a field goal. If, however, the drop kick is used after a touchdown, for the extra point, then it is worth one point, just like a point after touchdown. Quarterback Doug Flutie was the last NFL player to successfully score using the drop kick on January 1, 2006, when the New England Patriots played against the Miami Dolphins.

Is there an offside rule in basketball?

There is no offside rule in the sense that the term is usually used in soccer and ice hockey. It is not necessary that the defenders have one or more men between the ball and the basket.

However, there are other rules to regulate player positioning. The over-and-back rule requires that once the attacking team has moved the ball into their opponents' half of the court, they may not move it back to their half again. This concentrates the action nearer to the basket. The "no camping" rule declares that no defending player may spend more than three seconds within the lane at a time, so the defenders can't just "camp out" under the basket to prevent shots on it. Hence all the inefficient-looking jockeying for position under the basket.

Does it require as much force to stop a ball as to throw it?

No, you do not have to use as much force if you accelerate the ball over a longer distance. This means you are slowing it at a lower rate, but take long enough for the slowing to make a difference.
