The NBA has announced the six players to compete in the Three-Point
Shootout contest. Miami Heat Daequan Cook (who is having an off
season) will defend last year championship against all kind of
Veterans with some experience in the contest like Paul Pierce (2002) and Chauncey Billups (2002 & 2004).
Rookie sensation Stephen Curry (second generation of 'Currys' in the contest) will try to improve his father's performance in 1992 & 1994 when he did not pass the first round.
International basketball will be represented by New York Knicks Danilo Gallinari. The Italian is having a great sophomore season and leads the league in 3 point field goals made and attempted.
A big player like Phoenix Suns Channing Frye, second tallest in contest history behind Dirk Nowitzki. And talking about Nowitzki, maybe the home fans will miss a Mavericks player like Jason Terry or Jason Kidd in the contest.
