Subject: Slam Dunks, Besides all the backboard and rims being destroyed, one just recently. And games held up or cancelled. Players being injured ETC. Something has to change in this sport. It is only a matter of time when something serious happens. For one thing there is no skill at all for a slam dunk shot in a game . Not like shooting from the outside or the 3 point line, which takes skill. All it takes is the players to be tall. Many many people where disgusted when they allowed this to happen  years ago. The teams that had the tall players benefited big. Now is the time to make a change in both NBA and College. One: make the slam duck a one point shot. It would drastically reduce the amount of dunk shot attemps and make the player shot a skilled shot. TWO: the normal two point shot will stay the same, as is along with the three point shot behind the line. This is what is needed in the sport at this time. Not raising the rim ETC. What do you think? It would make for a much more interesting game and reduce the teams advantage that had the tall players. This dunk shot is totally unskilled  and should be treated that manner. Thanks Dave
