Through most of last season I worried quite a bit about this. Then the Raptors started shooting crazy numbers of threes and the worry developed a whole other layer to it. But I think if defenses can rise to the challenge then it won't mean that the game necessarily devolves. After watching the game vs Houston, I stopped worrying about the entertainment value and the soul of the game.

Still, some interesting points in here.

One thing I noticed with the uptick on the amount of 3's teams jack up, if both teams are clanging them, the game ends up looking like sloppy lazy basketball. Once the teams figure out that the 3 ball ain't falling, then the game goes back to regular mode and we start seeing more guys attack the rack. I suppose it's like taking a dip in the pool, but if it's cold then go jump in the hot tub for a spell.
