They didn't challenge 3s because teams didn't take many makes no sense at all.
Teams shoot 3s all day now because analytics. If you aren't going to contest a team shooting 40 or 50 3s a game then they will probably convert at 50%. It's not such a big deal when teams are only shooting a handful of 3s a game.

Jordan's shot chart from 1997/98. Shaq from 2000/01. You don't set up to defend the 3peat Bulls or Lakers the way you do the Curry Warriors.

I'm not saying they wouldn't contest them now.

This conversation started about "watch out for the landing space" comment. There's no reason to think this would be a huge problem.

If a Curry, Thompson etc. were putting up 10 3s a game at 40% then a 90s team would contest their shots. And they wouldn't be concerned with landing space fouls etc.

Also, lol shaq's half court shot.
I'd love to see if he made contact with the rim or backboard.
