comment How to make 100 free throws in a row
I'm glad your God is helping you with your free throws. But maybe he could spare some time to prevent those genocides and famines that occur every one in a while.

comment Why don't basketballers take more long shots?
The 4-point shot is interesting and I had not heard of it. But reading the article you link, I wouldn't say that the NBA 'considered' adding it. Rod Thorn simply "revealed that the 4-pointer has 'come up' in league discussions." Probably a thousand other things "come up" in league discussions everyday. It doesn't mean the NBA gives every one of them even slight consideration.

comment What is this (basketball) statistic called?
@PhilipKendall: If that is what you absolutely insist on, then you can simply multiply each player's plus/minus for each game by (48 minutes ÷ Player's playing time for that game). Alternatively, look at either of the two adjusted versions given by ESPN and basketball-reference.com. Both of them are adjusted to a per 100 possession basis.

comment Why win the jump ball?
I recall coming across a piece by some sportswriter, who claimed that it is better to start the 4th quarter with the ball (which is what happens if you win the jump ball, at least in the NBA).

comment Is this a held ball (which should have led to a jump ball)?
Yes but he was continuing to say the same thing even as he (and the viewers) were looking at the replay, where we could clearly see that.
