Description

The 3-pointer is THE shot in today's NBA, but that wasn't always the case. In fact, the NBA didn't introduce the 3-pointer until 1979. They adopted the downtown shot after merging with the flashier American Basketball Association, who in turn got the idea from a 1945 NCAA matchup between Columbia and Fordham in NYC. It's really not that complicated, but just in case, we got NBA legend and all-time 3-point leader RAY ALLEN to explain. Unfortunately, he couldn't help us with our long-range jumper. We'll stick to storytelling.
