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.
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
The ABA adopted it in 1967. The NBA adopted it in 1979. The NCAA Southern Conference adopted it in 1980. It was adopted nation wide by the NCAA in 1986.
The three point line was added for the 1987-88 season in Texas high schools.

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
A foul shot equals one point.
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.
