Buddy Hield raises the trophy courtesy of his instagram page

Buddy Hield, the son of Bahamas becomes the 1st Bahamian born and Caribbean born basketball player to win the 3pt shoot out. Bahamas did claim the 2015 3 pt title won by Golden State Warriors star, Klay Thompson, whose father is Bahamian and had spent a large part of his youth in Bahamas.

Hield though, one of the top scorers on the Sacramento Kings, edged out Phoenix Suns star Devin Booker in a thrilling finish where he drained 7 of his last 8 shots to lift the trophy.

Although he has hit 800 3s the fastest in NBA history, of the 8 sharp shooters that entered the competition, he was ranked 6th most likely to win. Well Buddy Hield proved them wrong. Congrats to Buddy Hield, Bahamas and the Sacramento Kings.
