3P Contest

NBA ALL STAR 3 POINT SHOOTOUT CONTEST

  • In 1986 NBA added another contest to the party. The last addition was the Slam Dunk Contest in 1984, and then Dallas had the honor of being the place where the Three-point Shootout Contest was inaugurated.
  • The rules are very easy: Players have one minute to shot 25 balls, 5 in each spots. The last ball of each spot “money-ball” has three colors (red, blue and white ABA ball), and it’s worth 2 points. The rest of the balls count for one point only.
  • Furthermore, in the 2014 edition, the NBA added a rack consisting only of “money-balls”, which can be placed on any of the 5 spots according to the player’s choice, bringing up the maximum possible score to 34 points.
  • The three best scores advance to the final round.
  • Until 1998 there were 3 rounds: Firsts round, semifinals and final with 8, 4 and 2 players competing in each round.
  • Since 2000 there are only 2 rounds.
  • During 11 years, 2003 – 2013 only 6 contestants took part in the competition.
