and how does JJ make it when he's not even the best 3 pt shooter on his team? House anyone? All Jones can do is camp on the baseline and shoot wide open threes. looks good beside durant and jones

Allen didnt look great in the last contest he didnt seem good at just pick up and shoot, I think James Jones takes this easy.

Matt Bonner is injured, Gary Neal actually has a lower percentage than all but Durant. Richard Jefferson has the second highest 3-pt percentage on the Spurs, which would have been an interesting addition considering how hot he's been lately.

I think Anthony Morrow should have been in this but not really upset.

It would be cool to see Ray Allen win it, and I'll be putting my money on him.

I'll go with Boobie Gibson as the dark horse.

I got Pierce going back to back.

redsox0717
02-08-2011, 03:24 PM
I'm putting my money on Pierce to repeat. Allen has a good shot too. Not being a homer, they do 3pt shootouts all the time for fun in practice, or at least they did when House was on the team, not sure if they still do.

i wish a Knick made it.... Shawn Williams leads the NBA at 51% 3pt... i understand him not making it though since he hasnt played the whole season and has only made 44 3's.. but what about Gallinari? he's a better 3pt shooter and shooting at a higher % this year... actually there's lots of guys shooting a higher % than Durant. he shouldn't be in it.. he's only at .347%... several guys are better 3pt shooters and are shooting it better this year.

02-08-2011, 03:32 PM
Dorell Wright is going to surprise a lot of people.....

I'm rooting for Boobie. Cleveland needs something...

KD most definitely won't make it passed round one. I actually don't mind him being in it though...some star power is nice.

D1JM
02-08-2011, 04:12 PM
i just dont get durant being there. he is shooting 34% from 3's and is a 33% career shooter

johnnychan
02-08-2011, 04:13 PM
I think Rays the easy pick. Im going with James Jones, the only thing the guy can do is shoot 3s.

dolfan720
02-08-2011, 04:14 PM
durant or wright

Arch Stanton
02-08-2011, 04:14 PM
Boobie was in it a few years back. Hopefully, he can step up this time.
I wouldn't be surprised if Ray Allen won though.

and how does JJ make it when he's not even the best 3 pt shooter on his team? House anyone? All Jones can do is camp on the baseline and shoot wide open threes. looks good beside durant and jones

so he should be able to hit at least 10 shots in the shootout then.

blahblahyoutoo
02-08-2011, 04:17 PM
Where is my man Shawne Williams?

yeah, i don't get how the leader in 3P% is not in it.
leader should be in by default.

02-08-2011, 04:20 PM

Lets just hope he doesn't miss 25 straight shots, I think James Jones win this.

Good one. Nice that you went after an easy target. I'm sure when the Cav's were good you hopped on that bandwagon.

I'm interested in Durant in this one. I think I want him to win. His shooting is effortless and would great if he could beat Allen and the defending champion Paul Pierce.

tangent12
02-08-2011, 04:52 PM

But the NBA knows better than to send Korver out there to embarrass their beloved child KD and NBA Cares spokeslady Ray Ray.

I'm confused. Is this some sort of joke? I didn't even know Monta was in the 3 Point Contest.

Oh and Pierce is the defending champ, and a better 3 point shooter

Where is shawne williams? Highest% from 3point range.

TheDiggler
02-08-2011, 05:21 PM
Gibson wins it.

Pretty weird selection of people though ... What's with Bonner, Morrow, Austin Daye, Eddie House and Aflalo. Durant is crazy ... even DeShawn Stevenson has better 3pt%.

Steph Curry anyone ? Brandon Rush ? Shawne Williams ? Kevin Love ? Kevin Martin ? Mike Bibby ?

Don't get it ... I'm sorry. But, Ray Allen is the only one of that list who deserves being participant. (except if you want the champ to defend his title, which is boring)

Do people realize 3P% means close to jackshit? It's pretty easy to have a 3-point percentage when you take less than 3 threes a game. Shawne Williams is a career 36% 3-point shooter, he has no buisness being in this.

the nba is crap compared to what it used to be, but this is actually something i really look forward to watching. but this line-up is blah. allen one of the best ever & should always be there, pierce earned the right to defend it even though i would love for him to miss every shot after his blowing off about being one of the best 3pt. shooters ever after winning last yr.(puke!). Give me Allen, Dirk, Nash,Peja, Battier, Korver, Curry. guys like that, then i'll get excited!

roju23
02-08-2011, 09:15 PM
JJ Redick should be in it. Guy is nasty with no defense. Ask the ACC. He won the McDonalds All-American 3 contest with 26 points and claims he has never lost a 3 contest. I know he is not a flashy name in the league, but I think he would light up this competition if given a chance. Just my opinion.

carter15
02-08-2011, 09:21 PM
I don't understand why people are complaining about Durant being in it. I'd rather watch him then Matt Bonner (no offense Spurs fans), star power is a great thing.

NightMayer1558
02-08-2011, 09:21 PM
These would be my participants if I had the choice:

Ray Allen
Dorell Wright
Kevin Martin
Jason Richardson
Wesley Matthews
Al Harrington

All have launched a huge number of 3s (over 240) and made a damn good clip of em (39% minimum)

But nice picks nonetheless.

NBA PLAYERS ARE PEOPLE TOO!
don't you think if the NBA could they would get a lineup of Ray Allen, Kobe, CP3, Dirk, nash and, idk curry, w/e my point is that they get a call and they say no i have plans or no im using the all star break to "take a break" or they are seeing their family that they don't ever see. This goes for everything including the dunk contest. sorry i spazzed but its really friggin annoying

Are you serious? Isn't it the three point contest? Isn't is his job on this team? He has better 3 point percentage than Pierce. Stop the hate man.

It's hilarious that everyone thinks a guy from their team will win a worthless contest like this.

And if their team does not have a representative, they pick on of their guys anyways and claim he was "snubbed" from a contest which has no criteria in the selection process.

Homerism on PSD has no bounds lol.

I don't understand why people post only about their own team and players in the main forum.

Would've been awesome to see my man Matt Bonner "The Red Rocket" win the shootout, but I guess the injury took him out of the running. KD over JJ Redick, though? That's questionable at best.
