      I wish the NBA would experiment with widening the court and lengthening the 3-pt line. I remember back in the 1980’s when the 3-pt shot, no longer a novelty, was still a “specialty” shot taken in volume by only a handful of players. Now, thanks in part to advanced stats, the whole game seems to revolve around the 3-pointer and the mid-range game, especially from the post, is now relegated to plan C, behind point-blank shots and 3-pointers. As Knicks fans, we see that to the extreme. To me, watching guys like Ronnie Brewer and Landry Fields, Jared Jeffries shooting 3’s EVER is ugly basketball.

      Random fact: Ronnie Brewer took 3.2 three point attempts per 36 min last year. Jeff Hornacek’s career high was 3.1.
