If a team makes 46% of 2-point shots (what I figure to be about average), that's worth 0.92 points per shot. If a team makes 33% of 3-point shots (which is a bit below average), that's 0.99 points per shot. If the opposing teams want to send all their defenders to the perimeter, then that should make for some very easy 2-point shots in the paint.
I know it's not that simple, but I really wonder why no one has tried it.
Don Nelson had some Maverick teams that came pretty close.
