4-on-4 Full-Court Basketball is the Answer

Recently, the NBA made $3.8 billion. But the days of “run and gun” basketball seem to be over. Today we have low scoring, grind it out, boring basketball compared to the days of the wide open, high scoring, basketball of yore.

Today’s NBA players are huge. The average height in the NBA is 6’ 7”. Players have been as tall as 7’ 7”. These giant men spread their wingspans, blocking drives to the basket and the passing lanes, which slows down the game.

The answer is 4-on-4 full-court basketball. It’s a faster game. Today's players are all much better ball-handlers than the players of old. They start younger and have much better open court skills.

Our 4-man game will enable the four-corner offense, which means that the driving lanes to the basket and passing lanes will always be open. Individual offensive talent can shine again—as much as team play already does.

The four-man game will enable the “run and gun” fast break style that everyone loves, making basketball more exciting. It’s a feature that will make 4ball games uniquely marketable. Every game will be “Phi Slama Jama” and “Showtime” again.

Today, the average NBA game has less than 100 points per team. In 4BallUSA games the average score for each team should routinely be over 100 points.

With wide open basketball, there will be more dunks, alley oops, fast breaks, and more scoring. That’s why we have patent pending protection to increase the size of the court or to decrease the number of players on each side.

With more 24-hour cable and Internet sports channels than ever before, there is a need for more sports highlights than ever before. 4BallUSA, with its wide open style of basketball could fill that void, as well as the emptiness caused by the lack of NBA games. In fact, with ROKU and iTV, we could even create our own TV station. And there are 400 cable channels we can talk to.
