As one of the best shooters in the NBA, J.J. Redick wanted an invitation to the three-point shootout during NBA All-Star weekend, but the Orlando Magic guard didn't receive one and is unsure about the criteria used to select participants.
"I guess it's just completely random," Redick said. "I know they want to have a mix of All-Stars and non-All-Stars. That's what I've heard. Maybe one day I'll be in it."
Another knock-down shooter, Kyle Korver, also is not clear about the NBA's premise on picking players for the competition.
"I have no idea [what the criteria are]," said Korver, who would not have accepted even if he was invited. "I'm not sure if there is any."
