    Thumbs up Curry in Three-Point Shootout

    Stephen Curry receives invite to All-Star weekend’s three-point contest

    Stephen Curry was the biggest name snubbed from the Western Conference All-Star team when the reserves, as voted on by the coaches, were announced last week. Curry’s improved play is a huge reason for the Warriors surge this season, and he’s emerged as one of the game’s purest shooters.

    That last part is the reason that Curry has been invited to participate in this year’s three-point contest in Houston on All-Star Saturday night. But the fact that as of now, that’s the only event he would be participating in is making him think twice about accepting the invitation.

    Stephen Curry has been extended an invitation from the NBA to participate in the three-point shootout during next month’s All-Star weekend, but he’s debating whether to head to Houston for just one event.

    “It would be a big commitment heading down there for one event so I’m figuring out if I’m going to make that commitment,” Curry told ****** on Saturday night.

    Curry was essentially a lock to be invited, considering his numbers from three-point distance this season. He ranks second in the league shooting 45.4 percent from beyond the arc, and ranks third in attempts with 291 — 64 more than the player who holds the top spot in the percentage rankings, Kyle Korver.

    Should one of the All-Stars selected be unable to play due to injury, Curry would more than likely be the first name called in as a replacement. If that happens, there’s no reason we wouldn’t then see him in the three-point contest, where he’d have to be considered one of the favorites.
    Very nice... looks like the Warriors will be well represented at the ASG this year! Curry should win this!
    49ers, Athletics, Warriors = Life!


    49ers = 12-4
    Warriors = 51-31 Making it rain!
    A's = 59-36 Back to Back AL West Champs!
    WINNING!

    I hope he does not go. If they don't want him on the AS team, I say enjoy the extra rest.

    Curry won't go. He feels despair over not being invited to the big game. It's basically the NBA saying, ''Steph you can shoot and we would love to steal you for a 3 point contest. However you're not allowed to play in the all star.'' Kind of reminds me of Tin Cup. Now that's a bad example because it's a golf movie, but Roy Macovoy aka Tin Cup had an old friend in the PGA Tour. He came all the way over to his trailer and asked him if he would like to caddy for him. Tin Cup's friend Romeo was like, ''Dam you, get outa here. He can kick your butt any day.'' And that's kind of how Curry feels. You want me to go to Houston, but not play in the all star game.. You just wanna make money off me and are basically telling me that threes are all I'm good for.

    Chris Paul was limping around pretty badly. If he misses the game then Curry seems like the logical replacement. But if Paul plays then I would skip the 3 point shoot out.

    I was hearing something about reserve players for the game. And don't really understand but I was hearing something about rondo missing and even though he's n the east they would give the spot to curry and the west would have an extra spot?? Heard it on the radio not to sure about the facts though? It's been a long time since I cared about a ASG
