Three-Pointers Made per Game: 2.1
Three-Point Percentage: 44.8 percent
Put me on record saying Steve Novak's three-ball is the most effortless stroke I've seen. You get the feeling he could knock down 25-footers shooting anything from a watermelon to a bowling ball.
Since joining the New York Knicks in 2011, Novak is shooting a jaw-dropping 46.3 percent from downtown.
You want to talk about a specialist? Last year, Novak made 161 field foals, and 133 of them came behind the arc. This year, he's made 74 three-point field goals and 12 two-point shots.
This is what he does. He catches from far away. He shoots from far away. Sometimes he doesn't even look at the rim. He's literally programmed with rim radar.
It's even more impressive because Novak isn't an athlete. Getting open isn't as easy as it is for Ray Allen or the other greats. Novak relies on his size, release point and confidence to let it fly without hesitation.
With nobody defending, I'll take Steve Novak as my pick to win the 2013 NBA Three-Point Shootout.
