I'm just not all that high on him as a set shooter. It was the same way with Gilbert before last year's event, because I always thought of him as a rhythm shooter, as in he'd have to get into that motion coming off a screen. Basically, I didn't think of him as a catch and shoot guy. I don't watch a ton of the Mavs, but from what I've seen, Jet is the worst of the bunch when it comes to shooting jumpers at a standstill.

And I have a mancrush on Damon Jones, so pay no attention to that.

how the hell was Luther Head not invited to the 3 Point Shootout? He's made more than half of the shooters in it. He's shooting a better % than most of them...thats sucks...

Luther could of won it..

Haha, I saw your name next to this thread, and was just about to come in and say Luther should've been in it. Probably over Jet since there's already a Mav there, and Damon's too entertaining.

Well Dirk won last year, so he's proved it a little more than Jet has.

Imagine if Dirk had himself getting him shots consistently like Terry does.. Dirk would probablty be shooting 60% from three. Look how much Terry's percentages increased coming to Dallas and playign with Dirk.

This is the case with most of the shooters in the 3 point contest.. except Dirk and Arenas... this is why they should be the favorites. But when you look at Arena's career 3 point shooting stats they aren't very good.. nowhere near Dirk's. Dirk should be the clear favorite. But anything can happen in such a small time frame. Someone can get lucky.

the one thing about dirk is that hes SO slow. He has a huge advantage if he gets to the finals because of the ease with which he shoots which prevents him from getting tired but its dangerous for him to get there because he could end up not making enough to get to the finals. personally i think the finals are gonna be dirk vs terry vs miller. any of those 3 could win it.

Yeah. Dirk has a disadvatage because he has a much longer distance to take the ball from the rack and shoot it because he is so tall.. his shooting style is such that he releases the ball at maximum height.. which is great in a game because it makes him unblockable.. but it maks his shot slower..

Dirk also has a high arcing ball.. whcih also takes longer but according to his trainer who is an engineer this is the optimal arc for shooting three pointers.. it increaes his error allowence.. so he can be less accurate and make more shots.. Players that have a low shooting trajectory are less accurate supposedly. Ray Allen and Kobe have very low shooting trajectories.
