*Due to the lack of shooters in Europe, the Official Euroleague 3 point line must be closer to the basket than Both NBA and NCAA 3 point lines. It is thus, identical in dimension to the WNBA 3 point line.

*Due to the lack of athletes in Europe, the Official Euroleague rim-height has to be 9 feet, instead of the 10 foot rims of the NBA, NCAA, WNBA, and High-School gyms of America.
