NBA 3-Point Challenge Hall of Famers

We continue this mini-series we’re doing over the weekend with the 3-point competition, won yesterday by Devin Booker. Let’s get into it!

 

My Picks: Larry Bird, Craig Hodges, and Peja Stojakovic

Larry Bird:

In the 1st every year of the 3-point competition, Larry Legend hit 22/30 which is amazing considering it was the 1st year and was new to the athletes. And not just for that year, but for the 2 years after that he won the competition as well. So that means the 1st, 2nd, and 3rd years of the 3-point competition was won by Bird. He has to be a 1st ballot hall of fame for the 3-point competition Hall of Fame.

Craig Hodges:

Craig Hodges won 3 out of the 8 competitions he played in. That is dedication. He may not have won every year, but he stayed in the competition for 8 years. That is more than any other player. And in his prime shooting years, he won. He won during years 4-7 of participating in the competition. So like Bird, he 3-peated. That is why he is in the Hall of Fame for the 3-point competition!

Peja Stojakovic:

2 wins and 2 runner-up finishes are why he is in this Hall of Fame! His best finish was also 22/30, the same as Larry Bird.

Peja Stojakovic’s Excellent Shooting Form Was Able to Seal the Deal in the 2002 3-Point Shootout

 

 

As you can see with the picture above, he can shoot. He has the form where he can knock a shot down from anywhere around the arc. Stojakovic had the ability to knock 10 3-point shots in a single game, while also in another game scoring 42 because of 3-pointers dropping for him. He is worthy of the final spot chosen by me.
