NBA Announces Three Point Shootout, Skills Challenge Contests
With NBA All-Star Weekend just two weeks away, the League has officially completed announcing their All-Star Saturday Night rosters.
Leading off with the Taco Bell Skills Challenge, the bigs versus guards format returns and so does defending champion and All-Star Kristaps Porzingis, leading a loaded bunch, which includes first-time All-Star Joel Embiid, rookie sensation Donovan Mitchell, and All-Star snub, Lou Williams.
On Thursday night, the NBA also announced the Thee Point Shootout field, which will feature the reigning champion and defending NBA Sixth Man of the Year Eric Gordon, one half of the sharpshooting Splash Brothers Klay Thompson, and Toronto Raptors own, Kyle Lowry.
Both events, along with the Slam Dunk Contest will take place on February 17 at Staples Centre in Los Angeles, California!
