I wanted to see t-mac too, but I think Korver is almost as good an addition. The one thing he excels in is shooting threes, it´s nice to see a specialist going up against Peja.

Awesome. :greatjob:

He deserved to be there over most the guys anyways. Now we need Mobley to come down with hemerrhoids so Mike Redd can take his spot.

Hmmm, great 3-point shooter, but by the looks of their original selections it looked like they were sticking with guys who are starters, there are a lot of bench guys who can shoot.

Nothing against Korver but I don't like his nickname k-squared.
Well if you don't like it, I can't believe they are going to let him
in the All-Star contest.

I dont think Tmac would be very good in the 3pt shooting contest. He is definitely not a set shooter, more of a jumpshooter. He might jump higher on his threes than anyone in the league. In the competition, he'd probably barely get half-way around.

I don't see a problem w/ t-mac not being able to get to the other end.. In pregame/halftime shootaround, I see him just drilling 3's back to back only missing a few..

I think Keith Bogans can make it in the future. I saw him take several set 3's just standing there waiting for the easy 3. I never saw him miss a 3 actually..

With his back problems, it would be pretty stupid for him to enter the dunk contest.

Kyle Korver will replace Brent Barry at the 3-point contest. I think he will give Peja a run for the title!

That selection just insured the title for Peja, as no rookie has ever handled the pressure. Barry has the perfect set shot, has a nice release - quick but not overly so, and is competitive enough(he did win the dunk contest) to have given Peja some competition.

Now, with Barry out and a rookie in? I suggest it is all over, but the cheers for Peja. :)

Probably because he is suffering some nagging injuries. I remember him in this before - did he win it?

:yes: He was the last player not named Peja to win. He won it while on Milwaukee in 2001.

That's what I thought - I couldn't remember how many times he was in it and when he had finally won it .

I still think he has some nagging injuries that kept them from inviting him back.
