This year's 3 point shootout
the 3 point shooutout looks interesting this year, although i feel Anthony Morrow should really have been selected to join the contest (him vs ray ray would be something to watch). Anyone's opinions?
Ray Allen, Boston
Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City
Daniel Gibson, Cleveland
James Jones, Miami
Paul Pierce, Boston
Dorell Wright, Golden State
If my boy OhCanada isnt in it im not even gonna watch
I'm surprised Boobie is getting some love.
exactly, isn't he injured still?
McDunkin, who's your boy OhCanada?
Paul Pierce??????WTF???? How did he deserve to be in it. He's a good 3 point shooter but his numbers aren't amazing and there are a few other players waaaay more deserving to make it. Plus I don't like having two people from the same team unless they are both putting up insane numbers which Pierce is not. Also just like the dunk contest there should be more contestants. Like 6 thats it? There should be atleast 8, and 6 in the dunk.
Here are plays more deserving then Pierce: and his 73-182 40%
Kevin Martin or Billups should of made it over Pierce
And I think Steph Curry should of made it over Wright
I am just mad because how is Steph Curry and Eric Gordon not in this contest. I bet Curry and Gordon could beat anybody in this contest.
But Curry got the numbers and he would of been my favorite to win.
Pierce is the defending champion. Wright leads the league in 3's made
Paul Pierce is the defending champ, thats why he is in it. Also, Eric Gordon is hurt so he couldnt be in it. James Jones is absolutely horrible, waste of a spot!!!!
i like daniel gibson to win it
I don't think its necesarilly a matter of Pierce being more deserving than those guys. You have to realize that they don't just get their pick any player in the league, a lot of these guys simply don't want to be apart of this stuff. Example: Raef Lafrents (spelling?) being in the 3 point shoot-out years ago....IMO Pierce has done enough to deserve a spot any year, he always seems to have a good showing in it anyway. However if you are suggesting that the David Stern and the NBA are both in love with he Celtics, than I would have to agree with you.
pierce, as was already pointed out, is there to defend his title whcih the nba does every year. Heck craig hodges was invited to defend his title and he wasnt even in the nba.
OhCanada = Matt Bonner = Red Rocket = Future 3 Point Champion
I don't think Kevin Durant should be in it.
OhCanada is Matt Bonner he posts here from time to time
thank you! he's shooting terribly from this year...chucking up 3's like the he's an 80% shooter from long range...i think he gets flashbacks from that okc-utah game from last season smh
Durant probably shouldnt be in it, but i think hes gonna win.
Brian Cardinal!!! The dude is shooting 45% and only one of his buckets from the feild has not been a 3 pointer!
Durant trying to get another trophy in the all star weekend next to his HORSE.
I'm really glad that Ray Allen made it in, this is shaping up to be one of the best contests I've seen in years. I think Morrow should be in over Gibson, but they had to throw the Cavs a bone I guess.
I'm surprised no one said Shawne Williams, he is the league leader in 3pt% with 50.6 percent on the season. I was pulling for him to be in it...
Predictions All-Star 2011
Win MVP All-Star
= Hall of Fame
"exactly, isn't he injured still?"
It should not matter, because if I recall right Voshon Lenard won the 3-point shootout with an Achillies Tendon injury.
