Want to eliminate threes entirely? Make the three-point line 40 feet! Giannis and Ben Simmons become the most valuable players in the league! What if you could make the restricted area or just dunks worth three, and everything else worth two? Now that’s how you bring back the era of dominant centers! You could allow hotspots or unevenly drawn lines. Allow teams to tailor their line game-to-game to match their opponent. What if the three-point line was only in play for the fourth quarter or moved closer in the fourth to increase comeback potential? I don’t see any reason why the NBA would adopt these rules, but they would definitely spice things up and open the door for more court-specific rules.
