  • some people told me they didn't like the three-pointer. so i went back and re-scored the entire NBA 2015-16 season without it. special thanks to Basketball-Reference.com, one of the greatest sites in the history of the Internet.

      Buckets right under the basket should count as 1. Between there and the 3 point line should count as 2. Then there should be a 4 point line like 8 feet behind that

                I want to see how scores would change if the shorter, baseline threes were counted as twos... but that would be even more work 😂

                    Mike Dunleavy Sr. of the Spurs
                    made 0.8 3PPG, or 67 three-pointers all season in 1982-83.... he outscored all but three teams in three pointers made.

                        What would happen if a 1 point line was added 2 feet from the hoop? Encourage team to shoot in the new 2 zone more

                            I read an article a while ago suggesting every time could establish the distance for a 3 point shot or even whether it exists at their home court. I think this would be amazing and provide a lot of strategy changes but obviously it'll never happen. 😭

                                          You forgot to carry the one. So that means Kyle Korver's 3-pointers became 4-pointers and Draymond Green became a small Asian woman who is afraid of horses.

                                            What if the Long Two was actually worth 2.5 points?

                                            Given how stupid football scoring is, basketball scoring could have a decimal. But I figure a lot of games would still end on a whole number anyway.

                                                                                          But in a vacuum the bucks are more effective and dominant in a no 3 league
                                                                                          Because lengths and they attack the rim or work mid range better than how efficient they are at shooting 3 and they're really good at shooting 3 now but still better inside the 3 line on both ends

                                                                                          I love Chart Party! The voice-over, the music, the visual style... and of course, the actual content. I like to geek out on stats, and now I have someone to look up to. I think the 3pt is something great because it makes it possible for guys like Curry, who are not all that physical, to become game changing factors. Not better, not worse, but it makes it more fun when it's not the same old huge-guy-pushes-towards-the-rim. Nothing against that, it's just that the contrast makes it all shine brighter. Watching LeBron James and Steph Curry at once in the same universe is great. I say it's a keeper.
