Sprawlball: how the 3s are messing up the NBA and how to fix it

Two good pieces on how three point shots are affecting the NBA. Opinions differ, but these pieces seem to think that the 3s are not improving the game:

  1. How Mapping Shots In The NBA Changed It Forever | FiveThirtyEight
  2. The NBA is obsessed with 3s, so let’s finally fix the thing

My feeling is pushing out the 3 point line is likely the best thing to do to add more variety to the game.  But read them yourself and decide.

It’s Hump Day. You’ve got that “Fail” feeling. Watch this.

It’s 2 and a half minutes. What? You don’t have time? You have time to get a coffee. You have time to check your phone. You have time to read your inbox again. So you have time to watch this. Don’t play basketball? It doesn’t matter. Check it out.

Work harder. Think harder. Try harder. Fail harder. Be better.
