The corner three-point shot is 22 feet away from the basket – 1.75 feet closer than a normal three-pointer – but counts for the same number of points, making it the most statistically efficient shot in the game of basketball. A lot of sports news and media today is based off of unproven opinion and fallacy, but sports is truly more than meets the eye. Welcome to The Corner Three Show! Hosted by Derek Reifer and RJ Garcia of CornerThree.net, we’ll discuss basketball and more from a statistical point of view, and always find time for a fantasy draft.

A Life Changing Experience
Less of a podcast and more a spiritual awakening akin to discovering the first coauthored gospel, the discussions contained within are so provocative they made my father come back. This kind of content evokes one of those immeasurable, animalistic reactions from deep within like the birth of one’s first child. You might even say it’s better than busting a nut!
First official Pro-Gamer podcast
We live in a society that thinks Lebron is a top 50 basketball player... he doesn’t even shoot corner threes..... analysts rise up....
