I like having discussions. I appreciate opposite perspectives. Even if I don’t agree with them, I can concede solid points can be made for them.
I just don’t think a 4-point line is necessary in the NBA.
It feels to MTV Rock ‘n Jock to me. It feels like something gimmicky. It feels unnatural.
It also feels like it’s leading to a 5-point shot for anything made beyond half-court. Or a 10-point shot from one end to the other.
Just doesn’t seem right.
Should football, trying to get more deep passes, allow for distances to determine the worth of touchdowns? 6-7-8-9-10? How about a point for every 10 yards out from the endzone?
Should baseball allow for an extra circling of the bases for bonus runs? Should the distance on a home run determine it’s worth?
These ideas are fine for a fantasy league trying to be creative. It just doesn’t seem to work for a real game.
Put the 4-point line in the all-star game if you feel like tinkering for the fun of it. I don’t need players, who already take too many ill-advised, low percentage 3’s, to be wandering out 5 more feet to take wild 4-point shots.
