I think this is compounded by the style of play that has been adopted


in the Golden State/Houston Rockets era of basketball. Everything is moving toward 3s or layups. Loss of talent and loss of the mid-range game has made for some uglier basketball in my opinion. While many of the pros are terrific at hitting 3s, the same cannot be said of college kids, especially when the best ones are leaving every year.

Also, there are very few players that can truly post up anymore, which is also the result of the change in style of play. Big men are practicing hitting 3s and not working on their inside game.
