Wob: Davis Bertans (+450)
inhales so audibly it is picked up over the PA system
FINALLY, Davis Bertans HAS COME BACK to the 3-point competition. This is the league’s best catch-and-shoot player in the NBA, and it’s BEEN THAT WAY FOR TWO YEARS.
God bless Joe Harris; he is fourth in the NBA in active career 3-point percentage, and he earned his trophy last year … BUT DAVIS BERTANS WAS NOT THERE. This is “The Rockets were back-to-back NBA Champions in 1994 and 1995 because Jordan went to play baseball” of the 3-point competition. Him being excluded from last year’s field was unfathomably blasphemous, but he has finally made it and will exact his revenge on this field of mere mortals.
Y’all have to understand that Bertans is not only at the top of the league in catch-and-shoot plays, per Synergy Sports, but he LAUNCHES BOMBS that make Damian Lillard and Trae Young look like an appetizer. With the addition of the long distance rack to this year’s event, you would figure that benefits Trae and other shooters (it does) … but they are not Bertans.
