The NBA All-Star festivities are almost upon us, with a lot of great events for the fans to enjoy. One of the events that has always proven to be exciting is the Three-Point Contest.
As always, the contest will be highlighted by the finest shooters in the NBA. Here is this year’s lineup:
Stephen Curry – 44.8% 3P% – Golden State Warriors
Kyrie Irving - 42.7% 3P% - Cleveland Cavaliers
Steve Novak - 44.1% 3P% – New York Knicks
Ryan Anderson – 40.2% 3P% – New Orleans Hornets
Paul George - 38.8% 3P% - Indiana Pacers
Matt Bonner - 45.1% 3P% - San Antonio Spurs
Matt Bonner is shooting the highest percentage from beyond the arc this season out of all the contestants. However, shooting percentage isn’t always the best indicator as to who will win the contest.
Steve Novak and Steph Curry are two of the favorites going into the contest. Novak is known for being an excellent spot up shooter, while Curry has not shot below 43.7% from three-point land in his career. And we all know that Kyrie Irving is more than capable of heating up and knocking down long range shots in masses.
So who do you think will be crowned as the best three-point shooter in the NBA this year? Vote in the poll below:
