Eight players, regardless of position, will shoot 25 threes as quickly as they can in five locations. Four of the five locations have four regular NBA ball worth one point and one multi-colored ball worth three points and another rack that consists solely of mutli-colored balls.

There is a new addition to the contest this year where there are two shots that are six feet behind the three-point line that can increase players’ scores.

Davis Bertans is performing in this! Here’s his competition.

  • Devonte’ Graham, Charlotte
  • Joe Harris, Brooklyn
  • Buddy Hield, Sacramento
  • Zach LaVine, Chicago
  • Damian Lillard, Portland
  • Duncan Robinson, Miami
  • Trae Young, Atlanta

  • Pat Connaughton, Milwaukee
  • Aaron Gordon, Orlando
  • Dwight Howard, Los Angeles
  • Derrick Jones Jr., Miami

The Wizards have one dunk contest winner, John Wall back in 2014!

Enjoy All-Star Saturday everyone!
