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).
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".
The year will probably never be known but likely somewhere in the late 1920's. There are two "fathers" of the jump shot. Both John M Cooper (Univ Of Missouri 1931-1934) and Gl…en Roberts (Emory&Henry 1932-1935) were born in 1912 and both originated the shot (independently) in high school. Which one was first will probably never be known. Kenny Sailors born, 1921, was the first to use it in the NBA in 1946. Others that were early users and popularized the shot were Bud Palmer, Belus Smawley, and Joe Fulks. John Cooper recently passed in 2010 at age 98.
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.
If a basketball player hits three point shots 45 percent of the time what is the chances if she takes four shots during a game that she misses the first shot and hits the last three?
No matter where you shoot from, after the three point arc it just counts as a three pointer.
