Looking at the NBA current leaders in three point shooting percentage, you can’t help but notice a few things. First, the top ten shooters percentages are separated by 5% (46.9 – 41.9%) and that you have to go down to the twenty-seventh shooter on the list before you get to someone who is shooting below 40% (min 141 attempts is the fewest). Ther are also players who are not shy about letting the ball fly three to five feet behind the arc as well.
With such success the question arises as to whether the three point line should be moved back again to make the shot harder?
Henry Abbott (of True Hoop and now ESPN’s NBA editor) along with the sites Hoops Idea have presented an idea of placing a second arc at twenty eight feet away that would give the scoring team four points.no comments
