Best Answer

A 3 or a three pointer is a type of shot that is taken from various places from around the three-point line.

If you get the shot, then 3 points is awarded to your team.

However, you must not step inside the three point line whilst shooting or else it will only be counted as a two pointer.

If you are shooting a three-pointer and you are fouled in the process, instead of receiving a two shot penalty, you receive a three shot penalty.
