Yeah, it looks like the old three point line. That will make a difference once the season starts for some that depend on the three consistently. It will also make moves in the paint more important, as it will not only make teams more dependent on the inside game, but open up the floor if teams can hit from outside, forcing defenders farther out on the floor. Players will also have to watch closer not to step out of bounds on the corner.

I watched some more of the videos and there are actually two 3 point lines on the court. The new line is yellowish and doesn't show up very well. I think that's what they were using, though.

I stand corrected. I was looking at pictures where the old line was showing up well. Glad for info from an eyewitness. :thumbup:

To your point RR about the side 3 point line. We were called for being out of bounds 3 or 4 times during the 3 games so that may take a little getting use to. I think it was Holliday a few times. I think he will be a very good addition. He is a tough nose player. His offense wasn’t clicking but I’ve heard he can really stroke it. He gets a lot of 50/50 balls with his aggressiveness and rebounded well. He started game 3 which I thought was evidence of how coach feels about him. Way to early to say this but I will anyway. I think we’re going to be good
