I think buzzer-beating shots (within :10) from beyond the halfcourt line should be worth 4 pts
There are two teams that play in the Staples Center:
the LA Lakers and NBA Clippers.

Well, I'm glad the NBA has denied these reports and said ESPN made up the story, because this is just dumb....

^Sure is. I don't want the NBA turning into the Globetrotters.

It would be interesting if it was implemented correctly. They'd have to have the line at a point where players shoot 25% on average on it to even out the points per shot. What I mean is statistically shooting 50% from the 2, 33% from the 3, and 25% from the 4 is the same thing.

They also have to widen the court (which I think they should do now anyways). The 3 point line is already an odd shape because the court is so narrow. You have players constantly stepping out of bounds trying to stay behind the 3 point line on the sides.

There are positives and negatives. I'd give it a go and experiment in the D-league first.
