But I know that's too short for this.

I like the best 2 of 3 idea.

I prefer less points to win because it makes it more intense. But that's me.

You sure you're not talking 1's and 2's instead of 2's and 3's?

A game of 2's and 3's (with a 4 point shot too) to 11 would be a commercial break.

Definitely 1s and 2s. This is 3 on 3!

Yeah see, that's the problem lol. 3 on 3 doesn't matter. You should either be playing all 1's or 2's and 3's. Playing to 11 by 1's may seem harder but the math doesn't add up... a 3 point shot being worth double any other shot just doesn't make sense. And that's talking about us hackers on the play ground. Even these retired guys can hit open 3's like they're 10 footers and you want to give them twice as many points for it?

I don't want 3s and 4s though. Should be 1s and 2s. And play till 21 is what I proposed.

That's still at least 11 buckets. Best 2 out of 3.

But I've only seen some of it so it likely doesn't make sense in this format.

But it's not 3's and 4's lol. It's 2's and 3's like organized basketball always have been (since the 3 point line... still 2's before that).

Playing to 21 by 1's is no different than playing to 42 by 2's. The difference in your proposal is you're literally giving twice as many points for a shot that isn't that difficult (3 pointer).

I don't care about the gimmicky 4 pointer. If that starts getting used a lot that'd be a turn off. But just logically, I don't see any reason anyone should ever play 1's and 2's. I can see just 1's to 11 with ignoring of the 3 point line, but could never wrap my head around giving a 3 point shot more weight.

But game is to 60, no? So it's definitely longer.

If it was to 42 with the 2s and 3s, I agree it would be a weird complaint from my end.
