Iíll take the current 3 point trend over the mid 2000s style of slash, gash, and gasp if you donít get to shoot free throws.
Basketball is pretty great right now, the only issue is the feeling that the Warriors winning is inevitable.

The reason I find it boring is because NBA offenses feel so predictable. Lead guard (or wing) drives to the lane thanks to being freed by an illegal screen set by his big man, lead guard draws help defense, kicks out to shooters spotting up in predictable spots on the floor for either a jumper. If defense actually closes in hard on shooter, then he swings it to the next guy open on the perimeter for an open 3. You see this exact play run what feels like 30 times a game from each team.Also, 3's are a high variance shot, that's where the saying "live by the 3, die by the 3" comes from. If you're playing the high volume 3 point game, you're placing the outcome of the game in luck's hands a little bit unless you're a truly excellent shooting team like GSW. I don't like that.
Cmon DJ was only automatic if the game had 5 minutes to go.Love him but for some reason he was only a good shooter at end of game.
Here's another weird thing about this era.......multiple multiple players in this league shooting threes better than free throws.
