Bump.... for RJ Hampton.

The revolution starts.

(Linking SI, because ESPN had two articles about this -- on ESPN+.)

They are moving the 3-point line back to the international line of 22' 1.75". And reducing the shot clock to 20 sec on an offensive rebound.

I am on a UK message board and many of the fans thought moving the 3 point line back would limit scoring too much. I was really struggling to explain why moving the 3 point line back increases scoring because it makes more space and space is the lubricant of offense. Do you people even basketball?

Only if the 3-point percentage doesn't drop.

That was a UK message board. Type slower, so they can keep up.

I have to challenge this theory. Teams in past years could have played ball as if the 3-pt line were moved back and thus created more space.

Bump, for Snoop riling up the stodgy state of Kansas:

They probably changed their tune when they read this, though:

Quote:
Kansas hosted multiple top-tier recruits that night. At least one of them, Javonte Brown-Ferguson (a 6-foot-11 center prospect in the 2021 class), said he had fun during the show.

"I loved my visit," he told the Kansas City Star. "The Snoop [Dogg] performance had the crowd going crazy. It was amazing."

The part that would tick me off is the fact the 100 dollar bills were fake. C'mon, Dogg!
