Brandon Rush should have been in this over Joe Johnson .. Joe Johnson in a 3pt contest is an absolute joke ..

RickyRubio
02-15-2012, 06:35 PM
Steve Novak or like Klay Thompson should have went in over Chalmers too

umm... Jodie Meeks anyone??

Why in the hell is Love in it..... He is getting severely overrated... Don't get me wrong he is a fantastic player and will be a top 10-15 player for the next decade but man.

Nash, Allen, Dirk, Terry, Morrow, Curry should have been the ones. Even though Dirk is shooting like 20%, he is still a top notch 3 pt shooter.

I'm gonna say Morrow wins.

Would have liked to see Gary Neal get a shot.

I'm going with Morrow though

Love will win.

love joe johnson shouldnt be in it, I think they should make a rule only one player per team,

Boring selections. Not saying Chalmers shouldn't be in with his numbers, but two Heat, four from the Southeast Division, and only one from the Western Conference is a bit meh.

the woman in my sig wants to be apart of the 3 point contest.. can she play?

No Cook, Harden, or Ray Ray. I'm not watching.

Where is Jodie Meeks!!!!!

02-15-2012, 07:10 PM
This is dirt..the hell came up with this selection

02-15-2012, 07:10 PM
I guess Paul George got to the height where he just has to drop the ball in the net from there.

Surprised Ray Allen isn't there. I'll say it'll be between Anderson and Jones

CHANGO
02-15-2012, 07:10 PM
Korver, Reddick, Bonner, Neal :sigh:

Love and Johnson? :sigh:

This is why the nba sucks at these things

And two heat players? Get over yourselves

the Warriors are the best 3 point shooting team in the league and no Curry, Thompson, or B.Rush? no love even for the few things they do good.

Very excellent contestants I bet the dunk contest will feature sasha pavlovic derek fisher kwame brown earl bonykins and matt caroll

Supposedly, selections are made based on a combination of guys who took the most 3pt shots taking into account 3pt% and the highest 3pt% taking into account number of shots.

Based on the first criteria, Ryan Anderson, Richard Jefferson, Jodie Meeks, Al Harrington and Kevin Durant would be in pool A. In pool B, Ray Allen, Mario Chalmers, Kyle Korver, Jodie Meeks, Richard Jefferson and Matt Bonner, JJ Redick. So any combination of these 8 players would be valid. Clearly, the selection process is a joke.

Kevin Love is going to win. I don't see him play often, but when the Knicks played the Wolves a couple if nights ago, Love's jumper looked filthy.

My dollar is on Chalmers.

Rush's 3pt % is way too low :rolleyes:

Joe ****ing Johnson? Not a fan of Love there either.

02-15-2012, 07:54 PM
god when is kobe gunna get himself in this contest. It will add some star power and more viewers to the contest.

I dont he would win but it would still be cool and didnt michael jordan enter one??

I say Ryan Anderson or Anthony Morrow wins... Redick should've been in it as well, he's never lost a 3pt shootout in his life (self-proclaimed).

I'm gonna say Morrow wins.

Love is easily top 10 in the NBA right now, and getting better.

But yeah, not sure how he made it honestly. There are a handful of guys I would put in over him right now. He has been ice cold recently as well, so his % has dropped to well under 40%, which shouldn't allow him to be in this contest.

My money is on Anderson, he shoots a set shot, won't get tired, and is just a shooter.

I'm sure there might have been a few people who turned it down. Some would rather have those few days to vacation/spend with family.

Teague should of been in over Johnson IMO.

Sportfan
02-15-2012, 08:22 PM
Jennings and Curry should be in over Jones and JJ

*Silver&Black*
02-15-2012, 08:24 PM
Curry, Jennings, Teague, Anderson, Chalmers, and Meeks would of been my list.

It looks like they just wanted to sprinkle some all-stars (Joe Johnson and Kevin Love) into it for people "to watch".

I Think Morrow is gonna win.

This alone should've gotten Matt Bonner in. He should've been in last year...

Dirk Terry and Curry shouldn't, at least if you're basing on this season. They really haven't been that good from behind the line or did it enough to be considered.

Joe Johnson is a joke though, dude shouldn't of been in the All Star game either.

02-15-2012, 09:26 PM
Jennings and Curry should be in over Jones and JJ

Well no one can get in over Jones no matter what. If you win the year before you get an automatic bid the next year.

This looks like one of the worst 3 pt contestant lists ever. This and the dunk contest are jokes now. People don't wanna see these guys. Man, the days of great shooters and star dunkers are long gone. Kinda sucks....

Matt Bonner
Steve Novak
James Harden


Should be over Love but whatever

When will the NBA understand that some of the contestants they choose based on percentage don't necessarily do well in the "get the ball from the rack and shoot with a time constraint" tactic. It's a completely different task. Those 3 point shooters that just stay at the 3 point line and wait to receive the ball tend to do worse in the actual contest.

Artest better be in the dunk contest since he was snub on this bs

Wish Steve Novak would have made it. He is a deadly shooter

02-16-2012, 03:11 AM
screw whos winning.. this should be a "who got snubbed" thread.... no Thompson, no Rush, no Allen, no Curry, no Novak.... come on!!! is there really that much hatred from the NBA to the Ws..... its retoracle so dont answer..

shizzle09
02-16-2012, 03:17 AM
Steve Novak or like Klay Thompson should have went in over Chalmers too

Chalmers has been lights out this year from 3. Novak?? He's made 25 less 3's this year at the same %.

John Walls Era
02-16-2012, 03:39 AM
Seems like Joe Johnson has been in a lot of these. I'll go with Morrow. Seems like a guy who can hit volume 3s.

anderson/love on the last round

Wagner14
02-18-2012, 12:20 AM
I don't know. I'm a heat fan so I'm gonna say chalmers only because i know what he can do. he's shooting in the mid .400's for the season behind the line and he's taken a lot of threes as well. We'll see. I think the finals will be Chalmers/Anderson or Chlamers/Morrow

I think James Jones will protect his title.

02-18-2012, 06:07 AM
This is a disappointing list of names... Isn't Ray Allen shooting the best from 3 point range in his career right now... Like wtf why have him in it before???
