  3. Gregg Popovich: There's No Basketball Anymore, No Beauty In It

Popovich seemed to suggest the rise of the three-pointer as a culprit.

"Now you look at a stat sheet after a game and the first thing you look at is the 3s. If you made 3s and the other team didn't, you win. You don't even look at the rebounds or the turnovers or how much transition D was involved. You don't even care.

Yup, Pop is done after this season

I think he said this a few days ago, but last night was kinda case in point.

I mean I don't like relying on 3's. LeBron made more than he should and they were in isolated instances. We should've stunned him with more Ball movement.
Competing every night, both ends, shoot inside/outside, fast break, transition, Monta Ellis have it all

I also hate the 3 point shot. They're not fun to watch. There is no creativity or originality in a jump shot, other than where you take them from, they're all the same. There can be much originality with lay ups, dunks, dribble drives.

I said in another topic he was too busy whining about s*** like the three pointer to focus on coaching, and then he comes out with this gem. Lmao dude is done. He said he hated it 20 years ago. Convenient that now that his team isnt looking so good hes picking now to come out and b**** about it so much. Where was all that when you were winning titles and making deep playoff runs, Pop?

Now that I'm done roasting Pop, I actually kinda agree with him. At least as far as the aesthetics of the game go. Watching teams trade possessions by jacking up threes right after crossing midcourt gets old and it's not a pretty game.

Well it really boils down to the fact NBA defenses are lackluster. Part of it is the rules, part of it is no one is properly investing into the skill.

Only Lonzo Ball has been able to make a difference. His ability to manage rotations, and incredible skill show it is very possible to null the 3-point game.

It's a shame he couldn't multiply and guard Gay and DeRozan to further amplify that point
