NBA executives have discussed adding a four-point line

Once upon a time in NBA lore, Antoine Walker was asked why he shot so many three-pointers and replied, “There are no fours.” Now, the idea of a four-point shot is not only not outrageous but an actual possibility.

In an ESPN interview, NBA president of basketball operations Rod Thorn and VP of basketball operations Kiki Vandeweghe seemed open to the idea, even hinting that the league has discussed it at some level.

Thorn even pointed out that many of today’s shooters, such as Vince Carter, could effectively shoot from any distance. ”Some of the players we have can shoot the ball from I assume it would be 30 feet? 28-30 feet,” he said. “Somewhere in there. Some of the guys we have can shoot that as easily as a 23-, 24-foot shot.”
