Former NBA Champion Rodrigue Beaubois Makes 117 Three-Pointers In A Row

Despite being a former NBA champion, Rodrigue Beaubois is not a name that most NBA fans would be familiar with. Beaubois currently plies his trade in Turkey, playing for Anadolu Efes in the Euro League.

Beaubois entered the NBA in 2009, after being discovered in the French league playing for Cholet Basket. After passing on the NBA Draft in 2007 and 2008, Beaubois garnered a lot of attention in the 2009 Draft class because of his impressive draft combine measurements.

He was a 1st round pick, selected 25th overall by the Oklahoma City Thunder. He was subsequently traded to the Dallas Mavericks in exchange for Byron Mullens, the player selected right before him at 24. But he only had a short stint in the NBA, leaving the league in 2013 after injury issues.

It appears the shooting that made him such a valuable piece to Dallas in his rookie year is still there for him. In fact, in a recent video posted by Anadolu Efes, Beaubois makes an incredible 117 three-pointers in a row during a practice session. Even Steph Curry hasn't been able to hit this number, getting closest with 105 in December.

Beaubois had an impressive rookie year, where he managed to shine for the Mavericks. He mostly came off the bench, but his shooting was what became of great use for the Mavs. The Mavs got knocked out in the 1st round of the 2010 playoffs by the Spurs, but Beaubois came close to bringing them back in the close-out game.

The following season, Beaubois struggled with injuries and played very little for the Mavs. He got injured right before the playoffs, meaning he missed the Mavericks' incredible 2011 NBA championship playoff run.

Rodrigue would play in the NBA for only 2 more years after that, before returning to Europe after dealing with major injuries. After several years, he found a home in Turkey, playing in the Euro League.
