Why? What's wrong with Hodges?

there are plenty of guys out there who shoot like craig hodges. he was a mediocre player who just happened to be able to shoot the lights out. he stuck out like a sore thumb in your list. even steve kerr was a much better player than hodges.

what the 3 point contest is missing is starpower that can actually shoot. there are plenty of second tier and lower guys who can light it up (albeit nash can certainly light it up, he just had a very bad night... such is life).

Yes, but Hodges set the record for the highest ever score in the three point shootout - which was tied last night by Kapono, but not broken.

He has to be included just for that. And the man three shootout titles in a row. Yeah, he was a crappy player otherwise, but you have to respect what he accomplished at the shootout.

i'm not saying i don't i'm just saying there are plenty of guys out there who would never get an invite by the nba who are equally good shooters, j.j. redick for one.

the problem is that larry bird ain't walkin' through that door.

But you forget that J.J. Redick is superglued to the Magic bench.

I also think it's just a much weaker decade for shooting overall than that 80s and 90s were.

The 1984 all star game just finished on ESPN Classic.

The 1993 all star game just started.

Shooting is in the toilet. A lot of the good shooters are just one-dimensional now. Headache mentioned Larry and that one's obvious, but I'd settle for Reggie Miller-level stardom and we don't even have that. It's Ray Allen and that's about it.

Re: the dunking, I liked Howard's dunk when he bounced it off the back of the backboard better. Also the Green cupcake dunk was pretty wild.

perhaps because athleticism has come to own the thoughts and minds of american basketball, and we kiss the asses of 11 year olds and tell them how great they are, thus killing work ethic and drive to be better?

naaaaaah

Hey! Jason Kidd might be traded to Dallas!

I love that Keith Van Horn's name is being brought back up. What a stud.

Wait...I don't understand, is KVH actually going to play for the Nets? It says he has to pass their physical...but I thought the idea was they'd waive him immediatly so he could stay in retirement and collect a free check, and the Nets could have the expiring contract. But the article makes it seem like he might actually play.
