Adding A 4-Point Play Would Be The Wrong Move For Basketball

The annual MIT Sloan Sports Analytics Conference in Boston is a forum to discuss the possibility of big changes in basketball. So it was no surprise when the concept of the four-point play came up for debate this year. The idea has generated a firestorm of controversy, and rightfully so. Rule changes happen often, and they can represent the growth of basketball. Don't forget that the NBA implemented the three-point shot in 1979, a change that's still drawing the ire of naysayers more than 30 years later. The three-point shot revolutionized basketball, re-shaping the way players play and coaches coach. But the four-point play -- even though it may sound like another step forward -- is not the right move for the league.
