Joe Johnson looks solid in Three-Point Shootout practice

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

After practice Tuesday afternoon, Joe Johnson went through a dress rehearsal for his Three-Point Shootout appearance on Saturday in New Orleans.

It is an interesting development that players will get to choose where they want to put the "money balls," or balls that are worth two, any place they want on the floor. Jason Kidd said that Johnson is best from the corners, so one can expect to see the money balls coming at the beginning or the end. A matter of fact, Johnson is best from the left wing, but is also quite efficient from the corners this season.

This will be Johnson's second appearance in the event. In 2005, Johnson was selected to the event and was underwhelming, scoring just eight points, and being knocked out in the first round. Johnson plans on taking the contest much more seriously this year.

Here is video of Johnson going through a round of the contest.

Also at practice, Jason Kidd ran through some trials of a Three-Point Shootout himself, posting scores of 13, 13, 16, and 27. Coach Kidd seems to still got it. And if after watching, you're wondering if Kidd could be a player coach, forget it. The new CBA doesn't allow it.
