Now that Brent is gone who's gonna replace him?

McGrady says he really wants to participate.

McGrady lobbied hard for a spot in next weekend's 3-point contest, "That competition is something that I've always wanted to do," he said. "My shooting is something I've worked a lot on and I think it would be a lot of fun. I mean, I couldn't do any worse than some of those guys who are always in it."

If McGrady wants to do it, they should let him do it... putting some real superstars in these competitions would really make them more fun in my opinion. And this is a guy who has hit 8 threes in 3 separate games this season.

Dirk Vs Peja Sounds Very Good...Peja Won Last time they faced off.... I still wanna see Jiri but Dirk isnt a Bad 2nd option....T-Mac isnt a 3 point shooter...I mean he can hit the 3 an has had some big games wit alot of 3 but u wouldnt call him a3 pt shooter.

McGrady made 8 threes in a row in the first half of a game not too long ago... I think it's reasonable to call him a 3-point shooter.

This season:

Dirk Nowitzki - 66/193 on 3's, 34%
Tracy McGrady - 121/345 on 3's, 35%

Taking 9 or 10 3s a game is a norm for T-mac. He can take and make 3s in bunches. The NBA would be pretty stupid if they say NO to a superstar like him when he wants to do it so badly.

And its good for T-mac too. Orlando's season is a wash. T-mac's goal should be set on winning as many individual awards as possible - 3pt contest, AS MVP, scoring champion, dunk contest etc :D

Thats great...
Tmac in the competition would be cool n all and all but the comparison of Peja and Dirk is made more often then Peja and Tmac. They really could build on the hype of the best two forgin players in the game right now going head to head. I'd much rather see Tmac show up for the dunk competition.

If you bring up TMac, you have to bring up Kobe because mr. cut on my finger can knock down some threes too.

Thanks for the link. I read on down... "They don't pay you to blend in" Barkley is yet again 100% correct. Step it up VC.
Barkley doesn't back down, sees through the BS, and says his honest opinion. I may not agree all the time with him but he has a fresh perspective and it's not forced, unlike a Stephen A. Smith.

I think McGrady could be pretty good in the contest, he would give Peja a run for his money.

you dont call him a 3 pt shooter cuz he does so many things as an all AROUND PLAYER!!!! IF Peja and Allan Houston could drive, fly, and score like TMAC they wouldn't be considered 3 pt shooters either. SInce they're 1 dimensional for the most part, they're called shooters.

Exactly. More people will then want to watch the contest, just to watch T-Mac, which is obviously good for the league and the All-Star game.

Dirk vs Peja could be pretty interesting.

That would be awesome, two Euro superstars, two friendly rivals, two 3pnt shooters. Wow, It should be either Steve Nash, Dirk, or Tmac that should be in it though.

I wanted Steve nash to be in that skills challenge too but I dont know why he didnt make that.

I agree that I don't think "shooter" when I think of TMac or Kobe. I always think "scorer" with those 2 and I think shooter when it comes to Dirk & Peja.

I think "shooter & scorer" when it comes to <b>Vince, </b> seeing as he shares a playoff record for 3's - which is MUCH harder than hitting a bunch of 3s against some non-playoff team in the regular season!!!
