3-point shoot

Recommended Posts

Can anyone explain the logic behind the NBA 3-pointer?



Rewarding a team for making a harder basket? Isn't the idea to work the ball around and take the easiest shot? wall_bas


I understand it makes it more exciting (maybe) in the last few minutes... but it really seems odd if you think about it... rewarding a team for taking a hard shot. wall_bas



If you think the 3pt is good, why not 5pts for for a half court basket and maybe a 10-pointer for a goal from under the other guy's basket.



Sorry, this 3pt idea is a pile of junk. Was the game actually BAD before this very odd rule? smash shrug big_shoc

I believe the logic behind it is that it "opened" the game more, so there would be less crowding around the basket. The NCAA later experimented with it, fould that it worked well, then adopted a shorter arc for them. Then high schools adopted the rule, using the college line.
