Arrow NBA Looking into adding 4-Point Line (What would Curry do to the League?)

Quote:
NBA president of basketball operations Rod Thorn and vice president Kiki Vandeweghe acknowledged in a recent interview with ESPN.com that the league office, at least in an exploratory fashion, has weighed expanding the dimensions of the court and the introduction of a 4-point shot.
The NBA was thinking of doing it but they are adjusting the rules against Curry because he is already too dominant.

I hope they do it.

It will destroy the game more than they already have, which would lose fans, and ultimately force the league to change the rules back..

They'll probably do overkill when changing the rules back (like they always do), so the rules will be more like the 90's.

A 4-point line would save the game from being in the shitter like it currently is

3 point shot doesn't destroy the game, it improves it vastly.

Jordan played during 3-point line era, but that little tidbit escapes 3ball's mind curiously.

.
The pass shown below is considered a good pass in today's spaced-out, soft ass game:






Otoh, without spacing, offense was harder in previous eras, so the standard for what was considered a "good" pass was higher:

say hello to your new mvp



a 4 point line would be terrible though, I can't imagine people hitting it at more than .3 percent, we would be witnessing a bunch of ****ing bricks.

Not according to the greatest minds in the game - Popovich, Phil Jackson, 3ball, etc..

The extra point awarded for making a three has made the entire game about seeking 3-point shots.

Most 3-pointers are stand-still, assisted shots... b-o-r-i-n-g..

Whereas 2-pointers are scored and executed in infinitely more diverse ways... Furthermore, the lack of spacing meant players needed to be more skilled offensively at both passing and scoring in heavier traffic (see 2 gifs in previous post)..

They are changing the game because Curry would be too good. Kinda like Wilt.

Except Curry does it while winning within a system and doesn't try to pad stats. He also doesn't decline in the playoffs like Wilt did, he gets better.
