    Default 3-pt dunk: Proposed rule change

    Ok, here's a crazy idea. Everybody loves dunks, and executing them in a game is at least as difficult and rare as making a 3-pt shot, in my opinion. It takes skill and toughness to be able to finish at the rim. This should be rewarded, I propose, with making dunks worth 3 points instead of 2-pts like any old layup or mid-range shot.

    Can you imagine the collisions at the rim? Guys like Demar would now have a strong incentive to go hard instead of settling. Of course, the fact that the Raptors might have the one of the best dunking lineups in the NBA also factors into this for me. But still, if I'm paying to see JJ Redick or Terrence Ross, I'd take TRoss 10 times out of 10. Not sure why the league should favor smaller guys who can shoot it from deep.

    Isn't a dunk with an 'and 1' incentive enough to take it strong? That's your 3 points right there.

    Do we really need a reason for guys like Lebron to blow teams out even more lol not to mention pad Griffins stats to further cover up how trash he is when he cant dunk?

    Dunks are only difficult if there are defenders in the way. Is a breakaway dunk (which is not much harder than a layup for these guys), worth 3 points?

    Must be a few days between games.

    Same can be said of the open corner 3-pointer. It's a shorter distance and if the shooter is not defended, should that really be 3 pts?

    Athletic guys (even Dwight Howard) have a chance to hit from behind the 3-pt line, but guys like Steve Nash or Jose Calderon can't dunk so it would not be equal
