Stojakovic Done with Three-Point Shootout

Sharpshooter Peja Stojakovic is saving his long range game for the regular season. The two-time Three-Point Shootout champion will no longer compete in the All-Star Weekend contest.

“I did that so many times so I don’t think I need to do it again,” he said on Friday night prior to the New Orleans Hornets-Boston Celtics game [1].

Stojakovic participated in five Three-Point Shootouts, dating back to 2001 as a member of the Sacramento Kings [2]. He dethroned Celtics [3] guard Ray Allen [4] to win back-to-back titles in 2002 and 2003. Stojakovic took a three-year hiatus before returning this past February to show his appreciation for the host city of New Orleans. He looks forward to spending time with his family during the All-Star Break.
