The NBA announced today the six contestants for the three-point contest in Orlando a week and a half from today, and Nick Young was not one of them.
The six participants will be:
James Jones (Miami Heat) – 40.47% from 3-point range
Mario Chalmers (Miami Heat) – 46.34%
Ryan Anderson (Orlando Magic) – 42.11%
Anthony Morrow (New Jersey Nets) – 41.96%
Kevin Love (Minnesota Timberwolves) – 36.07%
Joe Johnson (Atlanta Hawks) – 35.57%
I was really looking forward to potentially seeing Nick Young — who is shooting 39.3% from beyond the arc, and averages 1.8 three-pointers per game — in the three-point contest.
Now America has been robbed of seeing Nick’s signature fadeaway on All-Star Saturday Night.
