    Are you posting this to commemorate the year anniversary of this rules change?

    It's funny because there's some truth to it.

    The only thing funnier would have been if dixiehack had started that thread too. :D

    However, a can of worms is opened up, because ...

    *-The women's committee kept the line at 19'9". Given most schools have both teams share the same floor, there will be two lines 1' apart on most floors, which looks hideous.

    (high school is also staying at 19'9").

    Ya know, I never thought of it that way.

    And apparently that thread was D_B'd.

    On any court which hosts high school (19-9), college women (19-9), college men (20-9), FIBA (22-1.7) and NBA (23-9), there will be FOUR lines.

    Bullshit. Put it at 6.5 meters (21-4) for everyone. Men, women, boys, girls, high school, biddy basketball, NBA, everybody.
