The intimidating field for this year's Footlocker three point contest.
The All Star break is approaching, and it appears the can't-miss event will be the Footlocker three point shooting contest. According to Adrian Wojnarowski, five of the six players in this year's contest have been named. The sharp-shooting participants include Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Wes Matthews, Kyle Korver and J.J. Redick. Yup. Some stiff competition there.
Note that four out of the top five players with the most three point field goals made this season are participating. Wesley Matthews leads the league with 138, followed by Kyle Korver (135), Klay Thompson (132), and Stephen Curry (124). The Clippers' J.J. Redick comes in at seventh with 113 three pointers made.
Perhaps another top ten marksman will round out the group? For reference:
(5) James Harden (122 total)
(6) Damian Lillard (120 total)
(8) Danny Green (108 total)
(9) Trevor Ariza (102 total)
(10) Gerald Green (101 total)
Or maybe Marco Belinelli will return to defend his title? In any event, good luck to the yet-to-be-named sixth participant. Against this field, you're gonna need it.
