    time to move the 3 pt arch back?

    with,as it goes now,8 of the 10 players on the floor being able to hit the 3 pointer with decent efficiency...is it time we move the arch back maybe like 2-ft. and expand the court on the sides??
    times have changed and if this progression continues,how is the nba going to be watchable when these freak athletes,who are able to do soooo many breath taking things,waste their talent on taking outside shots that i'd take if i were in the nba....maybe moving the distance back wouldnt change how many 3 pointers are taken...but it cant hurt

    Not gonna happen. As much as 3 pointers are ruining the NBA, it would just be too drastic to move it back IMO.

    I'd be more in favor of getting rid of the 3pt line than moving it back.

    The NBA likes high scoring games. The 3pt line lets them score more. Why would they move it?

    Id be in favor of a new rule of 3s having to be banked in to count

    I never understood this moronic argument of the 3point shooting is destroying the NBA... Its not like you are getting 4 or 5 points... You are getting 1 extra point for a shot that not many players make more than 33 percent of the time... There are how many teams now taking a ton of 3 pointers? Cavs/Rockets/Warriors? Yet that is destroying the NBA? Its a small market of teams being able to play this way and it just so happens 2 of those teams are loaded... If we get rid of the 3 point line you basically are saying you know what perimeter defense is basically now irrelevant... Just defend it jesus christ... Stop *****ing about 3s and defend against them. We act like everyone in the NBA is prime Allen... Curry that guy that gets stroked for his shooting had 1 ridiculous season last year and now has fallen back down to earth a bit from 3 and its killing his team... Teams that live and die by the 3 actually have a ton of risk... Worry less about getting rid or moving back something and make these teams defend. This is such a ludicrous notion its mind boggeling... the league average for 3 point shooting is what 34 percent? 1 in every 3 attempts that is a good number... if it was 40 percent id be a little more worried. If you take away the 3 you now handicap the bigs that actually do more then just take up space in the paint which isnt fair either... Why handicap a Towns/Porz/Blake/Embiid and so on down the list? You basically limit these big guys if you push it back or remove it whom have worked their ***** off to not be a typical big... yup thats fair.... Its such a stupid argument... How about we stop worrying about stupid non issues and worry more about things like home court advantage and only having 1 game benefit for winning 30-40 percent more games then the other team you have home court against at times.... Or how about we worry about how stupid games are officiated late in games when fouls all of a sudden arent fouls because we want to let the players decide the game even though that in itself gives a ******** unfair advantage to the defense whom know they can destroy a guy and it wont be called.... Or how about we do something about the obvious top heavy teams and oh yea giving seattle back a team or giving canada another team?

    The 3 point line is fine... its basketball... DEFEND IT BETTER... Its that simple.

    The NBA already doesn't let players play D, they want high scoring games.

    Apply FIBA international universal regulated rules. Move the 3 point line in, and allow true zones and some hand checking. Scoring will go down but it will make for better basketball. Of course, the NBA won't agree because it's all about the cash.

    actually, all you need to do is cut off the corner 3s ... it would totally change the spacing and force guys to add to their offensive games. Watching teams shooting bombs all game is boring but it is good for the casual fan and fantasy sports sites which the league has invested in...

    remember... the NBA is becoming less and less of a sport and just more and more flat out entertainment for the casual observer.

    all star game is high scoring and its unwatchable.

    was watching the Nets the other day and even Brook Lopez was bombing away from 3... saw a stat that he's already attempted way more 3's in 60 games this year than he had in his previous 8 seasons combined. he's hitting as many 3's this year as Reggie Miller did in his career...lol

    its getting out of hand with no sign of slowing down.

    I think they should at least get rid of the corner 3 and see how that goes, guys are always stepping out of bounds anyway ttrying to shoot that corner 3. it would be better for spacing.

    ?

    250/477 players who have played in the NBA this season have shot at or better than 33.3% of their 3's. That's over half.

    As for teams shooting a lot of 3's, it's everybody. This year the bottom 3 teams in 3PT attempts are:

    Bulls 21.6
    T-Wolves 21.7
    Pacers 22.8

    10 years ago the top 3 3pt shooting teams were:

    Suns 24.0
    Warriors 24.0
    Rockets 23.1

    The teams that shot the least amount of 3's that season shot 10 per game.

    So the teams that are shooting the least 3's this season would be near those shooting the most 10 years ago.
