When there's no spacing, you usually HAVE to take a contested shot.. In previous eras, the 3-point attempts and spacing wasnt there to get good looks everytime like today's game..

The need to make contested shots and score without spacing explains why players had more individually-unique styles back then, as each player developed their own way to convert contested shots - think of bird, gervin, kareem - nobody plays like those guys, whereas today's players all look the same (its mostly 3 pointers and in-stride layups)

Also, keep in mind that the reason teams run offense is to get open shots - but since the lack of spacing in previous eras often prevented open looks, teams ran less offense and relied on player skill to make shots.. Thats why the pace was faster for most of the 2-point era - teams ran less offense.. They just ran up and down and took one contested shot after another - it was a more pure form of the game where the lack of spacing made great plays hard to come by.. It was a little like soccer or baseball where you had to wait for a great play.. Otoh, today's spacing has commodotized great plays - the plays aren't really great anymore because they're available every possession.

Btw, the whole reason for today's spaced-out, commodotized game is the increase in 3-point shooting, which allowed teams to drive-and-kick for 3-pointers instead of 2-pointers.. The extra point drove the efficiency of drive-and-kick higher than post-ups and isolations.. The spaced-out, drive-and-kick format looks prettier but the players are actually worse, simply living off the easy looks generated by spacing.. And make no mistake - if the 3-point line were removed, teams would go back to playing the "ugly", unspaced, inside-out style of previous eras, where great plays were actually great because they were hard to achieve without the spacing
A whole bunch of sentences just to say that they were just too dumb to realize how important the 3pt shot is to run a better and more efficient offense.

Doesnt help that the only big men worth a shit are injury prone... Whiteside, Gobert, and Anthony Davis

Wouldn't call Gobert injury prone. He went through the whole regular season last year without being hurt.

What if you make 3 pointer but it hits the rim or backboard(not a swiss) it's a 2 pointer? Reviews for stepping on the line already exist anyways...
