    He's right. I watched the game and ultimately changed the channel. Show some effort defensively. Put a hand up. Fight through a screen. Something.

    I have to agree. I saw the score at half time and swore it was the end of the 3rd quarter. It's like Charles said, it feels like they are just having a 3pt contest:hhh:

    It’s terrible. People think the nba can survive the next 10 years like this they’re mistaken. Like, we ain’t crazy. I’m not even hating on the young talent, but these games ain’t even interesting. These players all play the same. Pick and roll, switch, stepback... rinse and repeat. :mjcry:

    Started as the ABA gimmick, now a crucial part for a basketball player.

    If you come up with 4pt line thats further from 3 pt line... Few decades later you'll have everyone shooting from 4pt line.

    NBA isn’t going anywhere. If they could survive those 72-67 playoff games in the early 2000s they’ll be just fine now.

    I agree. At least when Golden State was doing it, a breh like Shaun Livingston would come off the bench and midrange you to death.

    Today, im not sure I want to watch a bunch of PnR and guys standing in the corner waiting for the pass off a switch to lob a three at the basket.

    Someone needs to create the defensive version of the triangle to kill this shyt.

    bu bu bu the game is has evolved look at the spreadsheets the three ball is more efficient. There has never been this amount of talent, watch how they chuck threes endlessly and give minimal effort on defense.
