    This is a good point. The NBA needs to look at making the 3 a little less prevalent.

    It's ruined the game in my opinion, but as said, I am not sure how we put that horse back in the barn.

    Eliminate the corner 3. Make fouls on 3 pointers only 2 shot fouls.

    I always wondered why teams didn't take more 3's back in the day. But now it's all they do.

    I don't hate it, but it is relied upon more than it needs to be.

    Pretty sure it used to be only 2 shots many years ago. They probably should go back to that. It might also eliminate some of the "flopping and flailing" players do when shooting a 3 to try and draw 3 shots.

    I dont see the corner 3 ever being eliminated.

    I'm the old man yelling get off my lawn, I know.

    But for me, there is a beauty in a well executed fast break like we used to watch with the Showtime Lakers, or the post moves of McHale and Parrish combined with the passing of Bird and DJ on those great 80's Celtics teams.

    It is of course what I grew up with, so I think it's going to be best, but I also know I am not alone in thinking that full court basketball based upon movement and passing, when executed well, is a beautiful thing to behold.

    Not to take away from a well shot three pointer, that can be incredible as well. What I have a problem with is the epidemic of poor player movement, then a crappy three pointer thrown up, or my real pet peeve, the three pointer on a fast break where you clearly have the advantage.

    Was watching a game a couple weeks ago, it was a three on one break, the ball handler stopped at the top of the three point line, both wings stopped pretty close to the corner three, the ball handler took the three, missed it, defender grabs the board and made an outlet pass, four on two break the other way, which leads to another missed three pointer. I turned it off at that point.

    I know, old man, I get it, but it just drives me crazy for some reason, I hate it.

    I think that's an easy rule change that will have major impact. Defenders will be more comfortable pressing shooters, which will then open up the dribble penetration game. Could really improve the game

    Nice little run by Gonzaga at the end of the half to get it down to 10.

    Maybe UCLA should get an assist for physically and emotionally draining Gonzaga in the Final Four game on Saturday night.

    Baylor was outstanding tonight. They were the hungrier and more athletic team.

    The UCLA game definitely drained the emotion and energy out of Gonzaga. They looked lethargic all night. And they picked the wrong two games of the season to lose their jumpers. It's almost impossible in today's game to spot your opponent 20+ points from three point range and expect to win. Baylor played great and deserved to win.

    Unfortunately, this will continue the "Gonzaga doesn't play anyone" idiots because they didn't win the big one again. Even though Gonzaga consistently goes farther than dozens of bigger schools that supposedly play "tougher" schedules than Gonzaga. 2 title games in 4 years, and they probably would've been in another final last year if not for fucking Covid, is not too shabby. Just a matter of time before they finally win it all.

    How many times do you see a team only needing a two point bucket to win the game and they launch a 3 !!!!! It's complete insanity. Coaches allow this crap.
