  • http://redoftoothandclaw.ca/ niQ

    That’s a nice list right there! I’m calling Ryan Anderson!

  • http://www.nba.com Red

    No korver?

  • robb

    I’m going with BlackboiPachino.

  • nice

    Jimmer would have been fun to watch.

  • http://dodgers.com Joey E.

    I would take Ryan Anderson(best swishes in the game), but can’t pick against Morrow in a 3P shootout. Can’t do it

  • Jayy

    No curry, Brandon rush, or klay thompson?!

  • Jose

    James Jones for the repeat!

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    Mario Chalmers? Ehhh… I don’t care if he’s shooting 60%, he shouldn’t be in this competition. Should be Goudelocke. Kinda joking, kinda serious.

  • http://dodgers.com Joey E.

    ^i hear ya with Glock. maybe next year

  • JR

    Haha, Rob said it before I could. I can’t not laugh when I see Anthony Morrows twitter handle.

  • Heals

    WEAK and the 80′s is shaking it’s head at 2 PF’s competing…

  • http://staticseth.blogspot.com/ Seth

    Mario Chalmers over guys like… RAY ALLEN?!

  • LA Huey

    James Jones. Only one without a twitter account and not playing significant minutes this year. This is the only thing he’s got to look forward to.

  • Mike Mihalow

    What morons decide these things?

  • http://slamonline.com Allenp

    Joe Johnson? Chalmers? interesting.

  • http://Slamonline.com Caboose

    Ryan Anderson wins in a landslide in the first round but Jonesy makes it interesting in the second. (But Mario Chalmers? Really?)

  • http://twitter.com/novocaine13 DJHurriKane

    Where is my boy Ray Allen at?

  • http://www.slamonline.com the_unknown

    mario chalmers isn’t even the best 3 point shooter on his team.

  • deadbored

    Ray Allen, Brandon Rush, Kyle Korver, Steph Curry…….who picks this ish?

  • May me my moe moo

    Where is J.J. Redick?

  • http://slamonline.com LakeShow

    the_unknown, Nor is he the 2nd or 3rd best. But he is shooting 46% on the season so I don’t mean to hate on the pick.

  • http://www.slamonline.com the_unknown

    @LakeShow yea, that’s a good point.

  • robb

    True, Brandon Rush is missing. Dude shoots better from 3 than Dwight from the FT line.

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Only one of them in the top 20 in 3PT%…….

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Mario Chalmers hurt his hand last night though. I don’t know if anyone realizes that.

  • http://www.nba.com VanCityBBall

    i dunno about u guys but i thought jj redick would be in it

  • D12FSU

    why does miami get 2 players?! its in orlando! we want JJ!!!

  • jpm34

    Got Mario winnin!! Rock chalk.

  • Dungeon Family

    I Can Bet anybody a 100 Mil That Joe Johnson Underachieve In this One

  • AD

    anthony morrow droped 42 this year……

  • http://thetroyblog.com Teddy-the-Bear

    Would have liked to see the Jimmer in this. lol @ blackboipachino.

  • http://www.slamonline.com megatron

    morrow or jones

  • http://Slamonline.com nbk

    Ryan Anderson should prolly be the favorite. Shooting is effortless for him. He’s also not reliant on a rhythm like everyone in this not named James Jones.

  • Mariano

    Lol robb killed me

  • http://nbasobrietystrike.blogspot.com/ CoolWhip

    Maybe the most unexciting 3 Point Group ever.
    Klay Thompson will win this thing at least three times before his career is over.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=542782613 The White Steve Smith

    Wheres Metta World Peace? This is a travesty. I wont be tuning in.

  • Dre Baller

    Steve Novak needs to be in this

  • http://slamonline.com The Philosopher

    Usually, the guy who’s bigger, stronger does well.

  • DruNyce

    Whoever choose this group should be relieved of their duties.

  • http://redoftoothandclaw.ca niQ

    Yea, just noticed they left out Novak and JJ Redick…

  • golakeshow

    no steve blake?

  • http://Slamonline.com Caboose

    Ideal group: Anderson, Redick, Allen, Rush, Love, and Jimmer.


    Steve Novakaine Novak would have been a great addition to the 3-Point contest.

  • Dingo Rob

    Go Kevin Love – not the best shooter out of this group but he is in with a chance so that’s enough to have hope.

  • http://www.huwlhopkins.com #6marjon

    kevin love is clutch but a reliable 3shooter? no

  • http://www.huwlhopkins.com #6marjon

    I wanna see the Red Rocket

  • hugo

    dirk probably asked not to be selected……

  • l2ising Phoenix

    Novak, snub… Just like Shumpert…..

  • cinquet


  • Tim

    No World Peace? C`mon man!

  • actionslackson

    Where’s Ray Allen…cmon? Did he decline?

  • Niyagirlfresh

    No Ray Allen? I agree with Mario Chalmers though.

  • Gman

    Where the hell is the best 3pt shooter of all time?

  • Jajajake


  • Bravo

    I say Anthony morrow gonna win. Al of you sleeping on him!!

  • David M.

    Great list. They should’ve added James Harden and Matt Bonner too.

  • DeeDre

    Its gonna be between K Love and Morrow. Mark my words. And its not about who they decide to come, its about who wants to participate and in an event like this you have no room to be picky

  • tonsoffunk

    Dudes… I know why they decided not to put in the jimmer, but heck, who doesn’t want to see what the kid’s made of?!!!

  • DJ


  • http://idunkonthem.blogspot.com albie1kenobi

  • Big Balls Smalls

    Jodie Meeks shoulda been in this

  • http://www.reverbnation.com/tray24 T-Ray

    No love for Walter Ray in a 3 point contest?! Life has no meaning smh
