Paul George Shoots an Airball in 3-Point Contest, Finishes Dead Last

paul george three-point contest
I don’t think anyone expected him to win, but his total of 10 points was pretty disappointing. The five other competitors (Kyrie Irving, Matt Bonner, Steph Curry, Ryan Anderson and Steve Novak) all finished with at least 17, and Kyrie beat Bonner 23-20 in the final.

Then again, with Paul George’s poor three-point shooting outside of Indiana this season (29.5% on the road versus 46.5% at home), it isn’t all that surprising that he struggled in Houston. Still … an airball? Come on, homie.

Silver lining: The baseline three long airball is probably the hardest airball to shoot. (image via SB Nation)
