    If they want to keep the 3 point shot they need to make it harder, only reward an under a certain size guard 6 3 or under if he drives the lane a dunks over a center. It should be really risky to get 3 points, like you could get injured risky.

      Get rid of it, it's stupid and gives lazy teams chances they shouldn't have. It's like letting a few cars have more horse power in a race, simply stupid. whomever thought of adding an extra point should have been laughed at. Desperation shots should still count as 2 points.

        NBA 3pt line is closer in than our 3pt line at the high school and I can shoot from what 27-25 feet out. Correct me if I am wrong the NBA 3 is 24 feet out

          I thought that they wanted more scoring and excitment if they want that they should have the players play no defence and see how enjoyable that is when each team scores 200 pts a game wouldnt that be so exciting just score score score score score score score isnt that what everybody wants with these new rules in the nba. Or shoot shoot shoot shoot shoot shoot from the 3 point line weither you make it or miss isnt that great basketball people.

            They should take the three point line out.

                The problem with moving the 3 point line back is the distances on the sides of the court. Moving the line back 5 feet? Or even 3 feet? Well, it has to be consistent and moving 3 to 5 feet on the side would be close to impossible. Maybe we need a larger basketball court then? Hmm...

                        Tell these nigga to play better d plus didnt we learn the mid range game isnt dead in the playoffs because teams will run you off the 3pt line. Tell the play to do a better job on d. We can't get mad that james harden can make a step back jumper. Its not his fault that no one can stop it. If anything allow players to touch each other on defense. Stop trying to change the game because guy dont want to play better d.

                                Bulshit, are they going to erase the record of the others that play on the court that shooted 3s? It's not the today's players fault for being better shooters. Y'all talking like it's easy to shoot 3s.

                                          I interpreted the heading as it meaning moving it BACK to where it was before where it worked perfectly fine. Players could actually guard the shot and the inside....

                                            The problem in the 80s was that people were so rigid minded about shooting 3s, it had a bad stigma. Same thing with dribbling to create offense...they were just really dumb tbh, no wonder Jordan fucking dominated

                                                    If 3 moves, 1 point region needs to be created.

                                                        Bullshit...keep the 3 point line where it is. That would give the old records protection from being broken.

                                                          Yeah sure. Maybe rise the basket higher aswell so that not everyone would be able to dunk.

                                                                                              Great argument I understand the concern but you would have to make the court wider or there is less total space for 3 point attempts. That only bails out players who don't take the craft seriously and rewards you for being less skilled or bigger in size to get to closer to basket to score. Which would make the game look like the old archaic days of slow stagnant offenses with a lack of athleticism with no desire to run back on defense because no one is trying to run by you to open up the floor, lumbering with big men who are robotic stiffs who stand no further than 5 to 8 feet away from the basket, that can't even turn there necks to see over the defense all over again!?!?! My god no this is clearly an example of the old living the past those days are gone my good friend. Fundamentals would have to pick up to play such a game. The skills are at a all time high but the fundamentals are at a near all time low. This is why I don't agree with the hack-a-shaq rule change because what are you going to do bail out players who don't practice enough free throws? He'll its no one else's misfortune you can't shoot. Come we can't bail out those who don't practice there craft enough and sadly we can't help the old watch the archaic game they grow up loving it would be bad for ratings and ultimately bussines. Come on folks don't follow the NHL, where they change rules to suit old crusty guys who might kick the can any week. Its a dangerous path folks good day.👊🙏👊
