Today, I’d like to have a little Eddie House party. The idea comes from Josh Q. Public… who also posted a video of Eddie going nuts.
And Jim Fenton has a piece on Eddie today all over the Gatehouse Media papers… and it includes the Celtics stars lobbying to get Eddie into the 3 point shootout.
“He’s got one of the quickest triggers in the league and is one of the most accurate shooters over his career,” said Paul Pierce. “It’d be nice to have a representative in the 3-point contest if Ray (Allen) doesn’t do it.”
“We need to get Eddie House in the 3-point contest, that’s what we need to do,” Allen said after Sunday’s easy win over the Mavericks. “That’s something that needs to happen. He’s never been in it, and I think he’s been one of the best shooters in the league over the last couple of years.
I’d love to see Eddie in the contest… but his shot is actually not built for that competition. He jumps pretty high when he takes a 3. It’s great in the flow of a game, but by the end of that competition, he’ll lose his legs. The guys who win those things all barely get off the floor when they shoot.
Eddie talked to NECN about the shooter’s mentality… including how he challenges Ray to shooting contests all the time.
