    On further inspection of his stats, I can see that his selection into the contest can be warranted. I believe that J.J. Re was snubbed yet again. In fact, in my opinion, Re should've been selected over George. George should've been selected to compete in the dunk contest, tbh.

    Comparison of their three point shooting stats:
    J.J. Red ~40% from three, 113 threes made so far this season.
    Paul George ~39% from three, 108 threes made so far this season.
    I would have no problem if Red was in the contest. But there should be no question that George deserves it as well, tbh.

    I'll be shocked if Bonner doesn't win. Novak's pure, but Bonner's money.

    As for Bonner, it is very well deserved that he finally makes it. While some may think he has no shot, I think he might actually do well. Dirk won it a couple years back and I think has a pretty slow release too...
    Dirk had his last money ball allowed even though it was after the clock ran out. Doubt Bonner gets that kind of help.

    All the confidence talk in this thread is bull . The only lack of confidence that exists is on the side of Spurs fans in Bonner's shot. I'm pretty sure Bonner doesn't give a what his past playoff shooting % is, and he'll let it fly when he's open like he always does.

    If anyone can prove in any way that his confidence drops in the postseason, I swear on my life that I will PayPal you $50. Acceptable proof would be something like a quote. Unacceptable non-proof is saying his 3P% is less, or pointing out that he takes slightly fewer 3P shots per minute.

    At halftime of the Bulls-Nuggets game, Shaq offered Charles Kyrie Irving for Kenneth Faried and Barkley turned it down...

    If Bonner can win this thing I hope it does wonders for his confidence going into the playoffs.

    First Tim, Tony, and Pop. Now it's Sean, Bruce, and Matt. Jeez, I'm going to have to watch this year. The Spurs are well represented!

    As for how Bonner will do, I guess it'll depend how comfortable he is out there. If it's like he's shooting at an empty gym, he's going to win. In practice, the guy literally knocks down >90% of his three-pointers.

    The Spurs have had great shooters over the years but Bonner holds records in the different three-point shooting drills the Spurs have that no one could ever touch. For example, the Spurs have a timed drill where each player shoots 20 three-pointers at each of the five spots along the arc. Hedo Turkoglu had the record for a long time at 82, IIRC. Then Matt Bonner came along. The last I've heard, Bonner holds the record with a ridiculous 97 out of 100.

    In an empty gym, Bonner may be the best three-point shooter who has ever lived. No joke.
    Maybe I remember something wrong, but weren't Beno and Brent tied at the top of that table at some point and they also had a score over 90?

    I think he has a great shot at winning. As far as him not finishing all the racks, I don't think this will be an issue. I don't know if participants practice for the contest (racks, time and all), but I wouldn't be surprised if Matt has and will.
