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.
Chronologically, Herman Sayger was the inventor. Depending on your perspective, the three-point line was developed/introduced several times in the course of basketball's histo…ry. The list of possible "inventors" are included below: # Herman Sayger (1933) # Howard Hobson (1945) # Al Grenert (1950s) # American Basketball League (1961) # Eddie Rios Mellado (1962) # ABA (1968) For a more in-depth answer, you can read Interbasket's article on Who Invented the 3-Point Line (check out the reference/link below)
The two point shot has always existed in basketball.
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".
A shot you make behind the three point line
You cannot; the highest you can score is a 3-pointer.
You can get 3 points
1 point if you make 1/2 or 2 points if you make 2/2
There are, technically, when a penalty is called on a three-pointattempt that goes in anyway. However, expanding the points scored by a single basket(e.g. from the far end o…f the court) would probably be unworkable,as it could lead to ridiculously low-percentage shots.
There is a rule called the 4 point play thats when you get fouled during a 3 point shot and make it and also make the free throw
its called the urban dictionary jackass
From the free-throw line, after a player has drawn a foul while attempting a shot on the basket. Depending on where they attempted their shot from, they will take 2 or 3 shots…. IF they made the basket they were attempting while drawing a foul, the number of foul shots is decreased by 1.
