The two point shot has always existed in basketball.
Thay are three points, or three-pointers
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.

I'm from Chicago, and have heard this term for over 25 years. We called it a crip' when I was young because 'anybody' should be able to make one; even a crippled person. Hence… the term crip', and in no way a shot at those persons who are handicapped.
so people don't think you made it by luck

According to a source at the South Dakota High School Activities Association, the 3 point shot was added to high school basketball for the 1985-1986 season.
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".
No matter where you shoot from, after the three point arc it just counts as a three pointer.
