"They asked me last week," Allen said before the Celtics-Dallas game. "I told them already that I would do it last week."

No announcement has been made about the competitors in the 3-point contest. Other Celtics were unaware of Allen's impending participation.

"You didn't tell me you were in it," Rajon Rondo said while Allen was being interviewed in the Celtics' lockerroom.

Asked about competing against teammate Paul Pierce, Allen replied: "I'm up for the challenge, I'm up for any challenge, I'm always up for a challenge. When would you ever think I would back down from shooting?"

Awesome. I really hope he wins it too

This should be Epic. Reggie Miller should suit up, it would be like the MJ Vs Wilkins dunk contest kind of a battle.

Exciting to watch the 3pt contest again.

You don't lose your jump shot bring back the past champions and let them duke it out. I'd love to see Ray, Reggie, kerr, peja and Dale Ellis. It would be more interesting than the pas 4 dunk contest.

I think that Ray and Pierce (Ray's teamate and the defending champion) should be a fun, friendly competition.

cant believe reggie miller never won a 3pt shootout trophy. he should come back for 1 night and join this year

Ray Allen
Paul Pierce
Stephen Curry
Anthony Morrow
Kevin Love
Steve Nash
Matt Bonner
Daniel Gibson (just to make cleveland fans something to cheer about plus his shooting 44% from 3)
+ Reggie Miller :D

No brainer there. Although he doesn't really deserve it this year, Pierce should also get in to defend his throne. Should be fun seeing two Celtics battling to win it. Some players that need to get consideration too: Bonner, Paul, House, Love, Morrow, Afflalo

About time! How can the NBA even think about excluding one of best shooters in the history of basketball

100% agree. he leads the NBA in 3PT % right?



Walter Ray Allen is my fav player all time BUT for whatever reason i have my money on Pierce.

Ray Ray, PP, Morrow, and Curry. Now that's a shootout. If Korver could somehow make his way in it, even better.

No he shouldn't. Doesn't shoot from all around the arc, and takes too long to square up. Besides, he's hurt. If any of the Spurs should be there, it should be Gary Neal. Manu Ginobili might be there, because he loves the 3 this year.

you would know more than me, ive watched like 1.8 Spurs games this year. he does lead in % tho right? too lazy to look it up.

Ray, paul pierce. . . . . . . And then otther guys who should be in it like anthony morrow, kyle korver, and shawne williams!

I have a feeling ray wont win it tho

The contestants should be: Ray Allen, Paul Pierce, Anthony Morrow, JJ Redick, Steve Nash;

other than that some possibilites of good shooters could be Austin Daye, Shawne Williams, S Curry, Gallinari, Dirk, Dorrell Wright, Ryan Anderson

can't believe Jason Kapono gets no love. Granted he doesn't play anymore the guy is a pure shooter, not to mention hes already taken one down 3 years ago.

Bruno
02-05-2011, 07:25 PM
Nice. Does he get booed throughout? I personally hope Ray doesn't "get another win in LA", but am glad to see him participating.

He was a couple days ago. He was over 50%!!!:speechless: Idk if much has changed.

Yeah, and I think Reggie is somewhat not happy about this (just my opinion) coz if Allen wins this, he gets another chip against Miller in their head to head comparison in the all time best shooter category.

But they are tied in my book.

He's 2nd (only behind by .002 though). He's missed 16 games though, and hasn't played since January 15. He doesn't shoot from all around the arc though. Only straight on, and about a quarter left or right. I don't know if he can't shoot from the corners, or if he just doesn't because of the system (usually have our SG or SF in the corner). I don't think the shootout would be the time to test that. If he does get healthy before the all star game, he probably won't have his shot back anyways. That's what happened earlier in the year. Got hurt, came back and couldn't hit a shot for 4 or 5 games.

I agree! It would be really fun to watch some of the other legends come back and compete during all star weekend.

its funny that sooo many people are already crowning Allen the 3pt championship. do people realize the best 3pt shooter doesn't always win this event? happens pretty frequently. actually it happned just last year.

tredigs
02-06-2011, 04:17 AM
Exactly one decade after the year he took it down. Glad to see this, love me some Ray Ray.

That said, Morrow's in it too right? That's my pick. Is Steph as well? This is going to be a pretty great ASG.

Curry and/or Dorrel Wright deserve to be in it. That's not even homerism, that's truth.

Anthony Morrow too.

Glad to see Anthony Morrow getting some attention on this page. Deserved to be in the contest when he was on the Dubs, should be on it this year, no excuses. D. Wright should be in there as well, made the most 3's out of anybody this year so far.
