How many NBA 3 Point Contests will Nik Stauskas win?

Submitted by Blue boy johnson on December 31st, 2012 at 2:55 PM

I think he wins about 5.

Really they should put Nik in the contest this year and let him win his first.

Larry Bird and Craig Hodges lead the list with 3 wins each; Nik gonna beat that with ease.

Put Nik on his home court in Missassauga and he's unbeatable

Fuck the NBA. Keep away from my team. The NBA is like a gang of termites to college basketball. We can revisit this in 4 years when he is drafted after graduating from Michigan.

There are bigger things to worry about than what guys on this team are going to do in their post-Michigan careers. B1G plays is in 3 days.

Limited time + multiple shot locations + having to grab the ball off a rack + longer shot + facing guys who get paid millions to be better at shooting 3s than anyone else = ...


I think it's far fetched to say he's that good just yet and there's something about the 3 pt contest that makes even the best shooters in the world stumble.  For now, I'm just happy we have a 3pt shooter like him on our team and that he's got a few years before this is even a relevant topic.

The real question is how many gold medals will he win?  In hockey.  Probably a ton, since (a) he's Canadian, and (b) hockey is a low scoring sport where a 3-pointer would be super valuable.

You've now placed a huge fucking jinx on Stauskas. He'll probably sprain his testicles or get arrested for running guns and women to Turkmenistan.
