The New Great Weapon

 The NBA has been evolving ever since its birth in 1947. The style has changed dramatically, the rules have changed and the players have certainly changed. These changes have included fouls being added, the twenty-four second rule and, of course, the three point shot. The three point shot has been the biggest game-changer in the history of basketball. However, the shot has never been more significant than in today's game. The first major shooter was Larry Bird then was passed by Reggie Miller. Ray Allen then took the all-time record for most 3pointers. But in our age the three point shot is not only important but necessary. Every great team has a three point shooter. The MVP of 2015 was even the greatest three point shooter. I expect that the league will even rely more on three point shooting.
