Charlotte Hornets shooting guard Marco Belinelli knows a thing or two about winning the NBA's Three-Point Contest during All-Star Weekend, having defeated Washington Wizards sharpshooter Bradley Beal in 2014.
It's why Belinelli decided to offer some tips to teammate and first-time All-Star Kemba Walker, who will show off his shooting skills from downtown at this year's event in New Orleans on Saturday.

Belinelli admitted he was nervous when he took center stage in 2014. "Just let it fly" -- the motto for every shooter who has ever picked up a basketball -- was the best advice he could give to Walker.
Charlotte point guard Walker is averaging team highs in 3-pointers made (2.6) and 3-point percentage (39.0). Meanwhile, Belinelli averages 1.5 made 3-pointers on 38 percent shooting for the Hornets this season.
