Default Kupchak: Some Coaches Tell Teams Only Score with 3's, FT, or Layups

Quote:
Kupchak echoed similar sentiments.

"The rules today promote that style of play,” he said. “There are actually coaches today that tell their team we’re going to score in one of three ways: free throws, layups and three-pointers. The idea of a two-point shot doesn’t even come up in a conversation with some coaches. That’s just the way it is today.”

Well, it is true because the most successful efficient shots are the 3's and inside the post. Unless, the mid-range is worth 2.5 points then maybe the shot efficiency will be distributed and people will take all shots equally.

Mitch is taking a shot at the idiocy Morey is promoting throughout the NBA ranks, in a subtle-but-not-so-subtle way.

That's great until a team takes away your 3's and layups... and the refs swallow their whistles.

Not when you face playoff defenses it is. You're not gonna get free layups (transition) and open 3PT shots.. This is where having a midrange game would help you leaps and bounds...
