  • Kevin Arnold bits explaining why NBA insiders are saying that the amount of threes taken in today's game is reaching a critical mass.

  • That is over on ESPN dot com and check out these numbers, including the playoffs.

  • 61 games in NBA history have featured at least 93 point attempts.

  • 45 of those 61 have occurred since the start of last season, According to ESPN Stats and Info.

  • The three pointer now represents about 40% of all field goal attempts, which is up 61% from if we go back like 10 years basically so really excited to have Robert Anthony here for this topic.

  • Because, look, Robert, you played with the three point line your entire career.

  • You hit some huge threes again.

  • His nickname Big Shot Rob just saying.

  • But the volume back then was nowhere near what we're seeing in today's game.

  • So how many threes is too many threes for you?

  • I think for me 30 is that tipping point, and for me, I'm watching the game now and it's kind of like who is not a three point shooter.

  • You have these big that, uh, cannot shoot threes and shoot threes.

  • Yes, I know three is more than two.

  • We learned this in preschool, and it's just but it doesn't really matter if you three for 10 and you can't shoot it.

  • Everybody thinks that's good.

  • That is poor.

  • You gonna shoot?

  • You gonna shoot 10 threes, you got at least make six.

  • That means you're hot.

  • So I am just I just can't do it.

  • All these guys are shooting three.

  • And I blame Steph.

  • And I blame Damon because after watching you, they take you to a whole new level now.

  • But you know, the three game has messed up the game because now everybody thinks they can shoot it.

  • Go back to being Joel MB.

  • You see what he's doing?

  • I know he shoots a couple, but he's making his bread and buddy in the paint.

  • Mhm.

  • Look, I'm trying to get like Robert, Okay?

  • I'm trying to get that three in my arsenal.

  • And when I think about this three point explosion, I think it's more so obviously a product of analytics the last few years.

  • But this season, especially, let's talk about it.

  • With that short turnaround, a lot of teams might be a little bit more guest right there, trying to make a point.

  • So if I'm a coach, you know, I'm probably telling them, Hey, we're gonna shoot threes And then, you know, look to get to the rim.

  • Not necessarily like doing too much in the mid range.

  • And so that's a strategy that I've heard from my personal coaches say, Hey, we're on a back to back.

  • Let's line it up.

  • Let's spread the floor.

  • Let's keep the ball moving Attack the room when you have a lane But let's let's try to find each other from three.

  • So I do think that this season it's interesting with the number, But overall, I'm not surprised.

  • And that's because the way the game is right now, raped and robbed like it's crazy.

  • You can't be a player without incorporating.

  • The three point shot is a part of your arsenal.

  • You know, that's just the standard for players growing up right now.

  • That's what you're forced to be able to do.

  • You know, maybe you're the small ball five right or the one center, but people expect you to not use that as a weakness as a part of your game and So the threes are here to stay.

  • I think for the future, every Hooper that's about to develop and grow, they're going to have to have that three point shot is a part of their arsenal.

  • I was a part of, like maybe the last.

  • You know, the kids that played outside, you know, we could be opposed and all that type of stuff and you can just bang at the rim.

  • The game has changed, and I don't think it's going back.

  • We'll look.

  • Yeah, we can tell Robert what I what I always say in these discussions.

  • Yes, three is more than two, but two is more than zero.

  • So if you have a good shot, that's a midnight shot or close to the hoop.

  • You should also just take that one.

  • I do, I will say is a fan.

  • It is fun when Damian Lillard, Steph pull up from where they pull up from because they make the baskets I'm running guys, Chuck do right in the All Star Game.

  • We should get a four pointer.

  • At least Thanks for watching ESPN on YouTube for live streaming sports and premium content.
