Have you heard about the rumors regarding a 4-point line in the NBA?
NBA players won’t be pulling up for a 4-point shot anytime soon.
The league denied Tuesday that any serious discussions had been held about that or expanding the court.
ESPN.com reported that the league had discussed both possibilities at All-Star Weekend.
In a statement posted on Twitter, league spokesman Tim Frank says, “No one at the NBA, nor the competition committee, has had any serious conversations about increasing the size of the floor or adding a 4-point line.” Frank adds “Rod Thorn and Kiki Vandeweghe were entertaining a line of questioning about out of the box ideas and ESPN.com chose to make a story that doesn’t exist.”
Take it for what its worth. Although I do think it would be interesting as the athletes are almost getting too good for the sport.
