With Kobe Bryant's left knee injury keeping him out of the upcoming NBA All-Star Game, there is still hope that the Los Angeles Lakers won't be totally shut out of the festivities down in New Orleans.
Jodie Meeks, a five-year veteran averaging career highs across the board, wants a chance to showcase his skills in the 3-point shootout on All-Star Saturday night.
“It would be nice,” Meeks said. “It would be fun.”
As of Thursday, Meeks ranked 12th in the league with 103 made 3s. His 41.0 percent from downtown ranked 25th, however he had attempted more 3-point shots than 20 of the players ranked ahead of him with a better percentage, so his mark becomes more impressive considering the increased sample size.
