Gotta believe second place is well within his sights.

Someone has to show me some proof that difficulty doesn't increase as range increases. It's ludicrous to even consider that a 22+ foot three pointer is the same difficulty as one from 19'. Like flat earth-level stupid.

Any errors in trajectory, velocity, and any other variable increase proportionally to distance.
Yep, definitely gets harder the further somebody is. Looks like the relationship is pretty linear. At some distance (just over maximum throw distance) accuracy would approach zero.

"So the league adopted a novel solution. In an effort to neutralize the physicality teams like those Knicks played with, the NBA incentivized 3-point shooting by moving the line ahead of the '94-95 season. The arc typically stretches to 23 feet, nine inches, but is not uniform. In the corners, the distance between it and the basket is only 22 feet. The NBA decided to redraw the arcs so that they sat 22 feet away from the basket across the board.

In some ways, the results exceeded the NBA's wildest expectations. The average NBA team attempted 9.9 3-pointers per game during the 1993-94 season and made 33.3 percent of them. A year later, those numbers jumped to 15.3 and 35.9, respectively, but as incredible as that leap seems, the improvements were even more pronounced in players.

Consider Michael Jordan. Never known for his long-range marksmanship, His Airness made only 30.1 percent of the 955 3-point attempts he took before his first retirement. From his second return until the line was eventually moved back, he shot 40.4 percent on 589 attempts."

As Jordan got much older he had to develop the outside shot. He simply couldn't take it to the rim like he could when he was in his prime.

Blake Griffin - took 0.3 three points shots per game when he started in the NBA in 2010-2011. Ten years later, he now takes 6.8 three point shots per game (more than the 4.5 two point attempts per game). Same reason as MJ (getting older, can't get to the rim), but even in the past ten years, the game has changed. Thanks Golden State! :)

JBo's path in this 3 pointers made category is pretty clear now. Even if he crawls he should make it to #2. But that gulf to #1 seems almost insurmountable, 35 more 3s to catch #1 seems like a lot.

Seemed like Peter Lisicky was at Penn State for 8 years. He hit the game winning 3 to beat the Hawks in the NIT way back if I recall

We'd have to get to the Championship game in both the conference tourney and the NCAA...and he's have a shot.
He needs 39 with 7 regular season games left. Wining one in each tournament would give him 11 more games. That's barely over 3.5 per game. That would be tough, bit is doable. When 2 in each tournament and he needs exactly 3 per game. Im guessing that's close to what he's averaging so far this year.
