Should the NBA adopt 4-point shot? 'I think it would only really benefit us'

The Harlem Globetrotters paid a visit to the Warriors at practice on Tuesday and showed a play Klay Thompson wants a part of. 

When the Globetrotters play, they use a 4-point line about 30 feet away from the hoop. After nailing some 4-pointers of his own at the top of the key with Zeus McClurkin and Dizzy English, Thompson was asked if the NBA should implement the 4-point shot. 

"I think it would only really benefit us," Thompson joked. "Dame Lillard can shoot like that. Paul George a little bit. Steph, especially Steph. Me and KD."

Steve Kerr wasn't surprised one bit by Thompson's excitement of a 4-point shot. 

"That's right up Klay's alley," Kerr said. 

Through their first 11 games, the Warriors are currently second in the NBA with 150 made 3-pointers. The Rockets lead the NBA with 166, but Golden State is the best in the game with a 40.9 field goal percentage from 3-point range. 

Thompson is shooting a career best 45.8 percent from beyond the arc this season.

Globetrotters call out Curry, KD, Klay with Oracle trick shot

In advance of their two trips to Oracle Arena this month, the Harlem Globetrotters on Wednesday challenged the Warriors with a trick shot off the arena roof.

After climbing to the Oracle rooftop 106 feet off the ground, "Scooter" watched "Buckets" drain a swish on a hoop outside the north entrance.

"Hey Splash Brothers, now it's your shot," Scooter said.

"Here's an H, @Warriors @StephenCurry30 @KDTrey5 @KlayThompson," the Globetrotters tweeted. "Your turn."

The Globetrotters play at Oracle on Jan. 14 and 21 as part of their 2017 World Tour.
