I wish they would be more like the NBA. The participates in the skills, 3-pt contest don't have to be actual all-stars. You could showcase more players that way. Harding, Whalen would be good for the skills activity. Don't they have some good three-point shooter that did not make the team? I guess it would take too much to invite more players Question

How is it that Nicole Powell is not a part of the 3 Point Shootout! She along with Taurasi are the best 3 point shooters in the league.

I know they did that the year Laurie Koehn won the 3-point shootout. But then again, the game was in Washington that year while Laurie was on Washington's team. Beats me why they wouldn't do that with Whalen, Phillips, or whoever.

I know that Whalen is said to be enjoying a nice weekend with her family, so I'm sure the League FO just thought it would be easier to keep it to those playing in the ASG.

And I would say switch Bird with Powell.

Sid would kill in this contest. She'd be our Kapono.

Sure let's bring a NEW YORK and TENNESSEE outsider into Connecticut for the contest. She'd be a smash! Evil or Very Mad


Forget Whalen, let's enter AJZ in the 3 point contest!

Um, wouldn't a three-point shootout and skills challenge only with All-Stars be the actual All-Star Game? Seems pointless just to have All-Stars. Pointless or cheap, one of those.

Nicole should be part of the 3 point shooting contest..it will be good anyway. Diana and Katie will light it up.

After Wednesday's game, maybe Sue should demand that all participants have to run for 45 minutes and then start the comp!
