A fan sitting behind Golden State's basket blows a loud whistle right as Mehmet Okur strips the ball from Ronny Turiaf. Thinking a ref has just called a foul, nearly everyone on the court stops playing - except Korver.

Korver set the NBA record for three point shooting percentage in a single season by making 54% of his threes.  Good to see him succeeding at the highest level.

Korver hit a HUGE shot for the Bulls today.  The NBA crew on ESPN has been talking about him all day.

Yes it was a big shot, and what a big comeback the Bulls had, they finished the game on a 16-1 run.

Sounds like the only team they are worried about is Team Spain with the Gasol brothers, so they kept all three Centers but cut the outside shooters that everyone thought they were going to ride.

And now team Spain loses to France, so the US will not have to face the Gasol's.

Korver is making 53.3 percent of his shots from the field, which is good enough for 17th in the NBA and an incredible tally for a guy who spends all of his time shooting jump shots.

From behind the arc, Korver still reigns supreme also, leading the NBA with an astonishing three-point success rate of 56.7 percent. It doesn’t stop there either, as Korver is also making 95 percent of his free throws, making that yet another category in which he leads the NBA.

He must have a blast playing and never getting any contact and getting to shoot 3's all game long.

Need to check this out, a friend just texted me... Duane Wade isn't going to play in the All-Star Game, so his replacement is... Kyle Korver.

Atlanta's Korver named to All-Star team after Wade drops out


Commissioner Adam Silver selected Korver to the Eastern Conference team Tuesday .

Korver is on pace to be the first player in NBA history to make more than 50 percent of his field goals and 3-point attempts, and better than 90 percent of his free throws.

Korver, who turns 34 next month, is the fourth-oldest player to make his first All-Star appearance, behind Nat ''Sweetwater'' Clifton, Sam Cassell and Anthony Mason.

Halftime and Korver is 4/7 3s, for 12 pts.

{edit}

After the third Korver is now 6/9 3s for 18
and East's second leading scorer behind LeBron's 24.

He finished 7-12 from 3 for 21 pts. Not too bad for a guy who didn't even make the roster originally.

Korver is out for at least three games after Laker's Davis set a hard screen (offensive foul) which broke Korver's nose.

Hawks' Korver has 'loose bodies' removed from elbow

It is the third surgery since March for the 34-year-old Korver, the team's starting shooting guard and 3-point specialist. He had surgery for a broken nose three months ago, and earlier this month surgeons repaired ligament damage in his right ankle.

Wow, that is an amazing run. I had to watch it a few times to see why their score didn't go up 12 pts but they changed his 2nd 3 to a 2.

Maybe if Korver does end up there and with Lue as the coach Omaha or Lincoln could get a preseason game with the Cavs.
For the record  NEBUGEATER does not equal BUGEATER    !!!!!!!
