Deep Spacing - The BOGO 3
Interesting article by Tom Haberstroh discussing something I have often wondered about. Do deep 3's (30') give you better second chance opportunities because of the long rebounds?

The BOGO 3
quote:

But here’s the fascinating trend that will change the way you watch the upcoming playoffs: Because of the hidden value of more second-chance opportunities, Logo 3s are far more effective than they appear to be by looking at raw field-goal percentage. Due to the laws of physics, teams get second-chance opportunities on Logo 3s at a much higher rate. So much so that Logo 3s are turning into BOGO 3s: Buy one, get one free.

Steph Curry has nothing on Trae Young's range.

ETA: people do not understand ridiculous hyperbole apparently.

re: Deep Spacing - The BOGO 3
Haberstroh came out and said the effect wasn't as great as originally thought. From his Twitter

quote:

This story has been updated with an important data refresh from the researchers. BOGO 3 effect not as strong as originally observed! (Play-by-play data is notoriously tricky y’all) https://t.co/2FrnmT0CWA


Still an interesting idea and the spacing is tantalizing.

This piece from the Ringer on the primacy of the 3 is a good companion read
