How to watch the 2023 NBA 3-Point Contest


For the 72nd time in basketball history, the game's brightest stars will converge on one city to showcase their skills to the world. The 2023 NBA All-Star Weekend is set to take place from Feb. 17-19 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

The celebrity game, rising stars challenge, dunk contest and All-Star Game are sure to dazzle at the annual event. The annual Celebrity Game is also sure to draw some extra eyes as the world's most famous, if not necessarily basketball-oriented, stars will take the hardcourt for a friendly matchup.

But one of the most electric events of All-Star Weekend is the 3-point contest. Remember when Larry Bird asked the competition "Which one of you is gonna come in second?" and then ran away with a win? Or just last year, when Minnesota's Karl-Anthony Towns became the first big man to win the event since Kevin Love in 2012?

This year's Starry 3-point Contest is stacked with stars. From young, budding stars like Indiana's Tyrese Haliburton to elder statesmen like Portland's Damian Lillard, this year's sharpshooting extravaganza is sure to be one to remember.

We're sure to see the sparks at this year's 3-point contest. Here’s everything you need to know about the 2022 event.
