With nothing more to do than cut players’ wages, the NBA randomly decided to implement a 4-point line once the 2019-20 season resumes. NBA Commissioner Adam Silver will publish the full details shortly at a press conference from his luxurious survival bunker. The relationship came from Adrian Wojnarowski’s newly revealed twin brother Damien Wojnarowski.
The idea has been discussed for some years, with many in the league taking a tough stance for or against changing the rule. While those in favor believe it will lead to even greater spacing and a more enjoyable product in general, traditionalists have prevented the game from turning into something almost unrecognizable from basketball as we know it. Of course, similar feelings were expressed when the 3-point line was introduced, with games from the 70s very different from what we watch now.
The players who will benefit most from the 4-pointer are definitely Stephen Curry and Trae Young, who for years have made the three look behind the line as child’s play. It will also add intrigue to Ben Simmons’ quest to develop an outside shot; he has already crossed the first plateau hitting a three, but now there is another mountain to climb with the four.
This follows another insane development on April 1 with the league planning to use a little-known outlaw to award this season’s NBA championship to the Los Angeles Lakers if the rest of the games and playoffs are canceled. Of course, that date is relevant because …
April Fool! During these difficult times we hope this made you have a good laugh (until this really happens … then we had totally sources inside).
