Three-Pointer! Synopsis

The three-point shot has been an NBA institution for more than 40 years, with the first long-distance bombs fired on October 12, 1979. The game has since changed dramatically, as action has moved gradually farther from the basket. Critics today contend that three-pointers have gotten out of hand. Attempts rose from 2.8 per game in the 1979-1980 season to 18.4 in 2011-2012 to 32 in 2018-2019. Charting this development, this volume focuses on examples of 12 performances by 12 exceptional shooters--with mention of many more. Starting with Chris Ford and ending with Steph Curry, the author shows how these athletes have changed the NBA one shot at a time.

Three-Pointer! Press Reviews

Like the athletes whose talents he's examining, Lukasz Muniowski goes deep: His research is meticulous and satisfying, and his writing is thorough and precise. This book is an essential tool to understanding not just the global popularity of basketball, but also the cultural and historical pivot points that help us understand the era-defining significance of the three-point shot. -Kent Babb, Washington Post
