    Good. 3's were too easy in college. Was turning basketball into a 3-pt shooting contest

    This would not have happened if Josh Okogie had stayed another year.

    I'd like to see an entire range of points. 1 pt under the basket, 1.5 from ten feet, 2.0 from 15 feet, 2.5 from the current three, 3.0 from the new three, etc. Maybe 5 for the half court shot.

    And I want the basketball to be colored red white and blue, ABA style.

    After every basket they'd have to stop play to check the tape to figure out where the shooter's feet were.

    I'd like to see them implement the point system as a function of distance using real time distance tracking by laser camera systems. Points would be tallied to the nearest 1/10th of a point. And you don't need to look at the feet, just look at where the ball leaves the hand. The hawkeye tennis technology should be more than sufficient.

    Ooh, I like it. Also, more points if you're facing away from the basket when you shoot.

    I mean, if we're adding lasers, might as well add a pool of these guys at center court to make fast breaks more interesting...

    And then we could add a degree of difficulty multiplier (kinda like in diving and skating) where a contested shots are worth more..... After all, we are engineers coming up with an engineering solution.

    And we could also include a factor to adjust for the players shooting percentage from that distance. Players with lower percentages would get credit for more points.

    That could be my way in to the NBA. Down by 26 with 2 min to go? Put in 18in32 and let him heave it from halfcourt.

    They should be scored based on the difficult of the dunk. A 360 backwards tomahawk gets you more than a mere rebound putback dunk.
