Nice lineup, will be fun to watch. Madgen is probably the only guy who you can say won't win.

Anyone else can win it.

I know he hasn't been on form this year but would have been nice to see CJ up there, doesn't deserve to be there going off form, but still nice.

Why is the 'money ball' worth 3 points instead of the historical two.. Seems odd?

From Marc Howard:

Just to clarify for those asking, All-Star 3PT contestants chosen from players nominated by their clubs. Daryl Corletto was not nominated.

Have you any stats etc to backup or explain why Madgen can't win it?

If Stephen Weigh is 'on' he'll definitely be a danger, and he is leading the league in 3 point percentage. His on and off again shooting doesn't give me a lot of confidence to back him though, even though I'd like to.

Forman to win it all... unless there's a rule that states the player can't have their feet set, in which case he'll be last :)

I would't be surprised if Weigh did well, the mechanics of his shot are tailor made for a three point shoot out (as opposed to someone like Brett Maher who put too much effort into each shot in terms of elevation and release point).

Weigh is just ahead of Madgen(2nd) on 3 point % made, but Madgen has the most 3 pointers this year at 22 to Weighe's 10.

Weigh generally makes his 3 pt shots when he is clear and feet well planted.

Forman as much as I don't like him as a player will win

Hopefully they change the nets for the weekend. It's going to be an eyesore when the ball goes in.
