1. Name given to a classification of shots made in the game of basketball. A three pointer is accomplished when the player with the ball successfully makes his shot behind the three-point line. Worth three points due to great distance that shot was made from.
2. Last hope for white guys in the NBA.

Failure to make the three pointer commonly results in an airball and much mockery.

Note: Three pointers are often shot from “downtown.”
Larry: Hey bitches, watch as I make this three pointer with my eyes closed.

After giving me head, my girl was laid up with me when she jerked me off, so I busted a three pointer. "Oh shit! You hit me in the face!", she exclaimed. From downtown -- nothing but net.
