The eve of the NBA All-Star Game has arrived, which means the dunk contest, the three-point contest and an array of other competitions. If you are looking for who is in each of the competitions and when they will be airing, here is the info you need.
Coverage begins on TNT at 6:30 p.m. Arizona. Here is the order of events:
Haier Shooting Stars: The annual shooting competition features a three-member team of one current NBA player, one former NBA star, and a WNBA player. Los Angeles doesn't have a team, but host Team Orlando includes Jameer Nelson, Dennis Scott, and Marie Ferdinand-Harris.
Taco Bell Skills Challenge: Stephen Curry last year won the event, which is geared toward point guards, but a right foot injury will keep him out of this year's proceedings. Kyrie Irving,Tony Parker, John Wall, Russell Westbrook, and Deron Williams are all scheduled to complete.
Foot Locker Three-Point Contest: Former UCLA Bruin Kevin Love will compete in this event, competing against defending champion James Jones as well as Ryan Anderson,Anthony Morrow, Mario Chalmers, and Kevin Durant.
Sprite Slam Dunk Contest: Griffin will not defend his title in a rather uninspiring field of four dunkers, former Arizona Wildcats Chase Budinger and Derrick Williams., Paul George, and Jeremy Evans.
