The NBA announced the names of the participants in the 2013 Three-Point Contest on Feb. 7, and it's a group chock-full of the league's deadliest long-range bombers.

We know the entire field can fill it up from distance, but figuring out who's the most likely to walk away from the competition as the winner is a more complicated matter.
None of the contestants have ever won a shootout in the past, and only Stephen Curry (2010) and Ryan Anderson (2012) have even competed before. So history is of no help here.
Clearly, the winning shooter will have to feature a quick release, a love of pressure and the ability to maintain good mechanics when tired. After considering all of those factors, as well as a few variables, we've compiled the odds and made some predictions about this year's contest.
So if the bulbs in your house start to flicker on All-Star Saturday, don't worry; it'll only be because these guys are shooting the lights out.
