Morrow snubbed from three-point shootout

NEWARK, N.J. -- The most accurate three-point shooter in NBA history was snubbed from the 2011 All-Star Weekend Three-Point Shootout.

New Jersey Nets shooting guard Anthony Morrow, whose .454 three-point field goal percentage ranks No. 1 all-time alongside former Chicago Bulls shooting guard Steve Kerr, was left out of the event's six-man field.

"I appreciate all yalls love, its aight, they know what it is," Morrow, who ranks 12th in the NBA in three-point percentage (.433) this season, tweeted.

New York Knicks small forward Shawne Williams, who leads the league in three-point percentage (.506), also failed to earn an invite.

This year's field will become comprised of the Celtics' Ray Allen and Paul Pierce, the Thunder's Kevin Durant, the Cavaliers' Daniel Gibson, the Heat's James Jones and the Warriors' Dorell Wright.
