3-point shot should stay.
2 points for other shots.
1 point for slam dunks.

I don't want to watch basketball with no dunk shots. Don't be jealous because you can't dunk.

Oh, there'd still be dunking. It's mostly for show anyway. I just think - less skill required, fewer points. Basically, tall people have it pretty easy there.

Lay ups often take less skill than dunks, you want to make those 1 point too?

How about if instead you get 3 points for dunking on someone and lose a point for missing a dunk?

How about if points are awarded by the feet?

1-ft = 1 point
20-ft = 20 points


The Pacers beat the Heat tonight 3,786 to 3,235

Or maybe we could add some Rock and Jock 10 point circles to the court.
