ESPN: NBA discussed new court, 4-pointer

 

http://espn.go.com/n...rt-4-point-shot

 

NBA president of basketball operations Rod Thorn and vice president Kiki Vandeweghe acknowledged in a recent interview with ESPN.com that the league office, at least in an exploratory fashion, has weighed expanding the dimensions of the court and the introduction of a 4-point shot.

 

"Making the court bigger -- it's an interesting idea and we've actually looked at it," Vandeweghe said. "We keep a list of ideas on what we should do and how we can make the game better, of course. But arenas are obviously built in a certain way and that would take a lot of adjusting to actually make the court bigger. But does it mean we shouldn't look at it? No, of course not. We're looking at all sorts of things."

I think adding a few feet or so to the width would be helpful for player movement and also finding space in the corners, especially behind the 3 pt line. 

 

I'm not sure what I feel yet about a 4 point shot, but it is interesting. It's something that many will think is too gimmicky or just too big of a departure from tradition, but if it had already been in place for many year, I don't think it would be thought of in a negative way.

NBC Sports / PBT: A four-point line in the NBA? Larger court? League not talking about it, just fans.

Just go old school rock and jock already and put different valued point markers all over the court.

Ridiculous.

Hahahahahahaha. My first thought as well. Might as well get Dan Cortez and Summer Sanders to call games while we're at it.

Lemme get two claps and a Ric Flair
