No Eddie In Shootout

No Ray either, according to Marc J. Spears

The NBA announced the field for the Foot Locker 3-point Shootout Feb. 14 in Phoenix during All-Star Weekend, and no Celtics are included.

Participants will include defending champion Jason Kapono of Toronto, Atlanta's Mike Bibby, Miami's Daequan Cook, Indiana's Danny Granger, Orlando's Rashard Lewis and San Antonio's Roger Mason.

Bibby?  Really?  He's below Eddie and Ray… and 32 other guys in 3-point FG%. But hey… why would the NBA want someone who shoots 3's well to participate in the 3-point shootout.

    Bibby???? You have got to be kidding me. Then again I haven’t checked his numbers but still, BIBBY?

    ASG doesn’t mean anything… I’m pissed that they got snubbed, but we’re trying to win banner 18 here, and a week of rest will only have benefits for Ray and Eddie.

    Deffinitly not a Bibby fan and I would like to see Eddy in there but his numbers are better than Eddy’s and only slightly worse than Rays.
    Bibby .409% 114 makes
    House .410% 86 makes
    Allen .410% 120 makes

    I think Bibby is from Phoenix, so maybe they wanted a “hometown” guy in there.
    They definitely should have had House or Ray Allen in there though. I know Rashard Lewis is leading the league but I feel like he’s going to disappoint in the contest.
