The three-point shot has become an integral part of every franchise's arsenal since the turn of the century.

Golden State Warriors won a ring in 2015 with a gameplan that was heavily focused on shooting from deep. Stephen Curry, the league MVP and Warriors main man is locked in from behind the arc night after night. 

But they are not the only franchise who use the shot, teams up and down the league are consistently letting fly from three-point land and specialist distance shooters are all the rage. 

However, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban believes the league should look into the idea of extending the three point line as he believes it is currently too close.

The line currently measures  23 feet, 9 inches at the crest and 22 feet in the corners and Cuban said: "It's getting too close. Guys are shooting a foot behind it anyways. That's something we should look at. It's worth looking at."

But Cuban is not suggesting the change to discourage the shot, he believes an increase would improve the spacing on the floor. 

However, the Mavericks owner did not believe it would be a good idea to introduce a four-point line - something that has been suggested on occasions when discussing the distance shot.
