Many have questioned how the rest of the NBA will catch up with the Golden State Warriors. San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich isn't so sure the answer is tweaking the rules regarding three-pointers.
"If we're gonna have a three-point line, let's have a five-point line," Popovich said Tuesday when asked about possibly moving the three-point line back, per ESPN.com's Michael C. Wright. "The only problem is Steph [Curry] would probably kill it. So it's like cutting your nose off to spite your face, you know?"
Indeed, moving Curry farther away from the basket may not have any impact on his shooting whatsoever. ESPN.com's Ethan Sherwood Strauss brought attention to this incredible stat about the reigning MVP:
Last weekend, Curry pulled up from roughly 40 feet out to nail a game-winner against the Oklahoma City Thunder:

The NBA is cyclical. Sooner or later, some team will devise a strategy to stop the Warriors, much in the same way everybody else eventually figured out the Phoenix Suns during the Steve Nash and Mike D'Antoni era.
Whether it's slowing the game down with a heavy reliance on big men, using the full-court press as soon as the Warriors inbound the ball or another tactic altogether, Golden State's supremacy won't last forever.
Until that happens, NBA fans should enjoy the ride and embrace what will likely go down as one of the best teams in league history.
