I especially like this quote, even though it is specifically discussing the 2-3
"Now, maybe there are initially two or three shots like this in a game and that’s enough to influence Syracuse’s statistics in their favor. But I think the reason has more to do with the offense realizing that getting the ball to the rim against the lengthy 2-3 zone is not nearly as profitable as it is against most teams. Thus, they lower their standard for what a good three-point shot is. A player may take that open 25-footer that his coach would normally strangle him for because that’s a better shot than driving into the paint and getting swallowed up by trees."
