All-Star 2008 3-point Shootout Challenge

This year 3-point contest is filled with big names and reputable 3-point shooters. Two former MVPs, Steve Nash and Dirk, Rip Hamilton, Defending Champion Jason Kapono and two-time shootout champion, Peja Stojakovic.

This year champion : Jason Kapono
He made a record-tying of 25 points.

Kapono missed his first two shots in the last round before dropping 10 straight. By the time he approached the last rack of balls, Kapono had already clinched the win and didn't have to fire up another shot.

But he knocked down a few more anyway, matching three-time winner Craig Hodges' mark of 25 set in 1986. When his final shot swished through, Kapono, who made all five money balls — worth two points apiece — and went 20-for-25 in the last round, slapped high-fives with other All-Stars and hugged Raptors teammate Chris Bosh.

Check out the overall recap of All-Star 2008 3 point Shootout:
