To "board" means to rebound the ball. This is when a shot is attempted on either end of the court, and the ball misses the basket. rebounding is the act of grabbing a missed shot.

How many boards could the mongols horde if the mongol hordes got bored?

The mongol hoards would hoard all the boards they could hoard as long as they had room to hoard more boards.If the mongol hoards liked hoarding boards, (I'm not saying they do) then they would hoard boards like no other board hoarders. They may even hoard as many boards as a woodchuck would chuck if a woodchuck could chuck wood. But if the boards they hoarded were mongolian hoarding boards then they would hoard as many hoarding boards as they could hoard before they horded normal boards. If they could only hoard normal boards then they would hoared all the boards they could hoard before they got bored. Damn mongolians
