I wish they'd get Ray Allen in it.

Anyone can get hot and take it, but Peja is definetly the favorite.

I think Brent is Peja's only "competition" truthfully.. The NBA set this up so Peja could have a 3-peat.. Obviously :laugh:

Cat is a great spot-up shooter and I think he could do pretty well in this.

Barry wasn't all that great last year. He just scraped-by until he was eventually overtaken.

I think it will come down to Peja and Mobley.

The problem with Mobley is that his release is very slow: He won't miss many shots but won't be able to finish.

Peja with an outside shot for a supersonic.

The event kind of favors the taller shooters who don't have to jump that much for their shot. Rashard Lewis could do suprisingly well. Assuming he's not in a slump going into the event.

I think it's kind of messed up that there are 2 Sonics coming to the event. And neither of them is Ray Allen.

The only guy that has a shot at beating Peja is Ray Allen, and he isn't in the competition.

Peja will beat Lenard in the Finals, that's my prediction.

Ummm no. Not at all. Have you ever watched even highlights of Billups, or Lenard? Why would the league set it up. I can see Lenard winning this easily and if Billups is hot then they should just give him the award early and give the dunk contest more time.

:rolleyes:

Yep, I'm busting out the eye-roller at this post.

The three best shooters are Peja, Chauncey, and Barry.

Billups has a quick release and doesn't jump much which makes him a real threat.

Brent Barry has a slower shot and extends his arms a lot which puts him at a disadvantage.

So basically I think it will come down to Peja and Chauncey.

Peja will win.

if barry wins though, will he be the first to win the dunk contest and 3 point contest?

Man what a crock, Billups, Rashard, Barry, Mobley?

Deck seems stacked in Peja's favor

What are they doing in this contest over Houston, Allen,Redd, Fisher, Nash, Spree... anyway, at least they omitted Walker.

How awesome would it be to have Peja, houston, allen, redd and ( your vote here) in a contest.
