Congratulations to Kevin Durant, who has been selected as a competitor in this year's All-Star 3-Point shootout competition. He's quite the resume stuffer - he is now an All-Star starter, a slam dunk competition coach, and 3-point shootout favorite.
I kind of get the feeling that the NBA likes having Durant around. Here are the participants. I'd like also to offer that we need good nicknames for everyone:
Kevin Durant - anything BUT Darantula
Paul Pierce - The Truth
Ray Allen - Jesus Shuttlesworth
James Jones - Joops
Daniel Gibson - Boobie
Dorell Wright - D. Wright Way
If not for the presence of Ray Allen, I'd probably give Durant the edge because of his hight and effortless release, which lend well to hoisting 75-100 shots in rapid succession.
