    I believe that they haven't considered this for the NBA.

    The league has always been very conservative toward rule changes - this is a fairly outrageous/ innovative concept and they're going to want to see how it works out first.

    They don't want another repeat of the "shortened three-point line" disaster as an attempt to improve offensive performances.
    Why do the things that we treasure most, slip away in time
    Till to the music we grow deaf, to God's beauty blind
    Why do the things that connect us slowly pull us apart?
    Till we fall away in our own darkness, a stranger to our own hearts
    And life itself, rushing over me
    Life itself, the wind in black elms,
    Life itself in your heart and in your eyes, I can't make it without you

    I like it for the reasons the league stated, to see how not having it affects game play. It will also help in that the players will be focusing more on their all around game instead of just 3's. I wouldn't care if they got rid of the 3 point shot all together.

    I think by admitting that they might try it in the NBDL, they have actually considered it for a possiblity down the road in the NBA.

    Otherwise, what is the point? Why bother?

    Personally, IF they are going to do away with it for a portion of the game then just do away with it for ALL of the game. That is how I see it at whatever level.

    I'd also be fine with seeing it banished from the college game entirely. But then again, I like defense.

    Nuntius was right. I was wrong. Frank Vogel has retained his job.
