    .....if you have a team with brains, like the old Jazz team with Stockton and Malone and Hornechek....you only need to take about 8-10 per game. It's the lowest percentage shot in basketball. The layup and dunk are much higher percentage shots. You also rarely if ever get fouled taking a 3 pointer. The Jazz had it right. I'm looking at some box scores recently....and can't believe how the winning team....won! The Heat yesterday, shot 4-17 from 3 point land....and had more turnovers than assists and still won the game! As they ask in the urban leagues, "how do that happens?"

    The 3 point shot can open up the floor and make it easier to get the high percentage dunks and layups without getting stuffed.

    The 3 point shot, when made scores more points than a made or missed 2 point shot. I like that part of it.

    I have two different opinions about that rule.
    First, when it's called against the other team I like it because the Jazz get to shoot a free throw.
    Second, when it's called against the Jazz it's dumb and the refs are just hating on the Jazz, as usual.
