Fouling out when it takes 10 fouls

From Grantland's review of notable moments from the NBA's Summer League:

You're guaranteed to see some crazy stuff you'll never get to witness in real NBA games, but you get to see it with a group of players athletically gifted and/or notable enough to make it exhilarating. Sure, that full-court press was a great example, but an even better one might have been the work that Jan Vesely did during the opening game of the tournament. The Wizards center showed up to summer league with his A-game in tow, fouling out in just under 31 minutes of action. Now, I know what you're saying. Jan Vesely fouling out in 31 minutes isn't that impressive. Here is what you are forgetting, though: It takes 10 fouls to foul out of a summer league game.
