Three Point Line Moved Back One Foot for 2008-2009

What are your thoughts on this?  Do you feel, like I do, that the present length, 19'9" is, especially when taken at the top of the key, nothing more than a glorified foul shot?  Will it "open things up" down underneath as the defense will be forced to extend outward a bit more?  Will the teams with "journeyman" like three point shooters begin to take fewer and fewer three point shots as their percentage wanes?  Will there be more of a premium on guards who can hit the shot from the new, farther out, distance?  Francisco or Tyquan would not have a problem with the new distance and I don't think that Jerry will, either.  Womens three point line stays where it is now, so, in games played in NBA arenas there may be times where there are three three point lines on the court!  Where am I?  Hand me my GPS!!

The change of one foot is subtle, but substantive, and you know me, I don't like change.
