MIAMI Once a year, the NBA holds a 3-point contest featuring some of the best shooters in the world.
As for the Miami Heat, they have one of those nearly every day.
Miami players regularly have contests after practice. If you didnt know better, youd think it was the NBA event during All-Star Weekend.
The Heat feature two players who have won the All-Star contest in Ray Allen, the 2001 winner with Milwaukee and a six-time participant, and James Jones, the 2011 champion with Miami and a two-time participant. They have three other guys who have competed in six combined contests in Rashard Lewis (three), Mike Miller (two) and Mario Chalmers (one).

Maybe even the entire six-man field. The Heat also have Shane Battier, a career 38.2 percent marksman who led the NBA with 42 3-pointers in the 2012 playoffs while helping Miami to the title.
We have some of the best 3-point shooters in the world, said Chris B...

Inevitably at some point this season and in seasons past, an NBA player will miss a wide open three. A good shooter will miss a wide open three. The broadcaster, fumbling for an excuse as to why such a great shooter and player would miss what amounts ot a relatively easy shot, will inevitably say the player was too wide open.
Perhaps there is some psychology to this. NBA players...
The hoops starved fans of Seattle may finally see the NBA return.
LEAVING BOSTON BEHIND
Tweet After five seasons with the Seattle SuperSonics Ray Allen was traded to the Boston Celtics in 2007. With them he won his only NBA championship to date and became the league’s all-time leader in three-point field goals made. But all wasn’t good in Beantown, atleast not towards the end.
