Here are the teams that exceeded expectations the most so far:

NY Knicks
GS Warriors
Atlanta Hawks

These 3 teams have something in common, they take a lot of threes. Even though it doesnt seem like it, 3s are highly effective. Shooting 40% from 3 is equivalent to shooting 60% from 2.

Do you feel every teams should attempt a lot of threes like NY, GS, ATL and the 2011-12 Miami Heat or even the Spurs, it seems to be working just fine?

I don't believe they should jack up threes.I believe they should take good threes and try to make them.

3pt shot is one of the most efficient shoots in the game.

The first second your team hits a shooting slump during the game, that whole "Shoot a lot of 3s" mentality will literally kill you.

Believe it or not none of these teams are in the top 5 for 3pm per game. I wouldnt say any of these teams really rely on threes. Warriors but 4th in the NBA in rebounds and play great D, and New York has the best turnover ratio in the league, they play smart with the ball. There are a lot of factors for why each team is succeeding.

Each team has players with good inside precense: Lee, Horford, and Chandler, so they can get a lot of post scoring and mainly pick n roll with chandler.

I mean it's definitely an interesting strategy. If you can shoot 40%+, it's a great strategy. But it won't work out like that in the playoffs. You can't just rely on 3 pointers to win you games. No matter who you are, you're going to have off nights.

Nah. It's been proven for the shooting 3's theory can get you very far. Look at the Magic from like '09 to '12. They relied a lot on their three point shooting and got the Finals once and made the Conference Finals once. Also the Spurs have used it for a number of years.

Well yeah, as long as there is another form of scoring you can rely on. If jacking up contested threes is what your gameplan is, then you will lose when you're cold. Good/open three shooting has always been a viable option though.

All teams have solid three point shooters though. Novak, Kidd, even Melo on the Knicks. There's Lou Williams and Kyle Korver on the Hawks. Don't even get me started on the Warriors. For most teams, shooting threes wouldn't work, but for these teams it's one of their main strategies.

This is what the Knicks are doing better than anyone in my opinion. We have screens that screen the screens on our screens and our ball movement this year is excellent. Our team as a whole is so good from 3 that we can decoy Steve Novak just because of the amount of attention he draws and when they overplay him or Melo they just kick it out. I can't wait to see what happens when Amar'e comes back.

Knicks has used the threes a lot. They have 8 players that can knock down threes. Even Rasheed Wallace...They take high percentage shots. That is their advantage.

The 2009 Magic were a better proof!

Basing your game too much on 3s might hurt you many times but if you hit them, you got great chances of winning.
If I had a team, I wouldn't base too much there.

The best strategy is feeding your bigs (if they're capable) being the first option IMO. You have to go for the higher percentage shots.
