    Reigning champion Paul Pierce of the Boston Celtics will defend his title in this year’s NBA Three-Point Shootout Contest, which will be held on Saturday, Feb. 19, at Staples Center in Los Angeles as part of NBA All-Star Saturday Night.

    Rounding out the field are All-Stars Ray Allen of the Celtics and Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder, Daniel Gibson of the Cleveland Cavaliers, James Jones of the Miami Heat, and Dorell Wright of the Golden State Warriors. Allen won the contest in 2001.

    Not a bad group. Having Durant Allen and Pierce will be good. Adding Miami's sharpshooter also isn't bad. Would've been nice seeing Kobe or another 3 point shooting star in there.

    Sounds about right, no complaints. I think it'd be cool if they had some old timers in it though, shot's last to leave you and all that.

    I thought Pierce's challenge to Allen couldn't be done because the NBA allowed only one member from each team?

    Sounds good to me. And I'm sure there will be plenty of fodder to be gained about Durant's inclusion. No matter what he does, we'll hear a lot more about it.

    Keep in mind that he is a two time HORSE winner with a goto shot being the 3 pointer. He can stroke it like nothing when nobody is guarding him.

    Jesus is the favorite.

    Definitely not Billips. Dirk and Nash are a good idea. Doesn't mean Durant is a bad one though.
