Freddie Brown graduated from downtown Milwaukee's Lincoln High School in 1967, where other high schools gave him his nickname "Downtown Freddie" Brown, and he was often am…ongst the top free-point shooters in the league. Downtown Freddie Brown was captain of the SuperSonics' 78-79 NBA championship team. When the three point shot was adopted into the NBA in the 79-80 season, he led the league in 3 point shots, and during this time, it became a saying, referring to "downtown" as a far shot (3 point shot).
Ronnie Carr of Western Carolina made college basketball's first 3-point shot in 1980. Chris Ford of the Boston Celtics made the NBA's first 3-point shot in 1979.
The NBA adopted the 3 point line at the start of the 1979-1980 season, which is of variable distance, ranging from 22 feet (6.7 m) in the corners to 23.75 feet.
Chest Pass The chest pass is the most common pass in the NBA, used for most passes. This involves you pushing the ball with two hands from your chest outwards, thrustin…g the ball towards a teammate. Used all of the time, the chest pass is the most efficient and reliable way to pass. Bounce Pass The bounce pass is the second most common pass in the NBA. This involves a pass, with one hand or two, bounced to a teammate off of the ground. Any way you want to pass, as long as the ball hits the ground first, is considered a bounce pass. Overhead Pass The overhead pass is the third most common pass in the NBA, used sparingly. These are passes that require two hands on the ball. The ball is brought behind your head and launched forward, back over your head to a teammate. Often used for fast breaks to throw to a teammate on the other side of the court, overhead passes are passes that are more for power rather and quickness rather than accuracy.
Free throws, three pointers, two pointers, alley-oops, reverse-layups, lay ups, Half court shots, full court shots, Fade-aways, Step-Backs, Bank-shots, Hook-shots , and if you… think you are good enough you can shoot a Scalabrinity
Lay up, Dunk, or Jump shot.
Bounce, overhead, and regular
Bounce pass Chest pass Over head pass I think there's a baseball pass too. It is used for half-court/full-court passes. They are very accurate. I use them quite often.

Ronnie Carr. He played for Western Carolina University in Cullowhee, NC He made the shot on Nov. 29, 1980
Answer Outside of the "key", but in the same half of the court, there is another line, roughly in the shape of a half circle. Shots made from outside of th…is line are awarded 3 points. They are sometimes referred to as "field goals".
The three types of basketball shots are: One-handed shot, hook shot, and the two-handed shot.
The official types of shots involved in basketball are the mid-range shot, the layup, the three-pointer, the dunk, the alley-oop, the free-throw, and the half-court shot. Thos…e are the official shots, but there are some other slang terms.
1.) there is offensive away from the ball foul at the same time as the shot, resulting in no basket, or 2.) the game clock or shot clock has expired before the made 3pt sh…ot was released from the shooters hand or 3.) the shooters foot was on the 3pt line,resulting in only a 2pt field goal.
No matter where you shoot from, after the three point arc it just counts as a three pointer.
