With the 70th annual NBA All-Star Game still taking place this season despite the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, the typical All-Star weekend festivities will be on as well.
Things will look a little different on March 7 in Atlanta, Georgia, with the 3-Point Contest taking place on the same night as the All-Star Game itself
This year's crop of shooters is as loaded as it's ever been, partially because it is the first time in the event's 35-year history that all six participants are current All-Stars. There are two former champions in this year's group (Devin Booker and Stephen Curry) as well as four other All-Stars.
This is Booker's fifth appearance and Curry's seventh, which marks the second-most in NBA history. Zach LaVine and Donovan Mitchell are also competing this year after each has won a Slam Dunk Contest in previous seasons. If either wins, he will become the first player in NBA history with both a Slam Dunk Contest and 3-Point Contest victory in his career.
Here’s everything you need to know about the 2021 3-Point Contest.
