You can do the skill challenge if you want as well.

The dunk contest has been random in terms of participants so I wont even try.

For 3pt:

Klay Thompson
Kyle Korver
Marco Belinelli
Ray Allen
Kevin Durant
Welsey Mathews

Curry wont be in it because he was in it last season and lost

I just imagined Tony Schiavone's voice saying that. Lol. I heard you mentioned wrestling the other day, so I hope you get the reference.

But that bugs me the big players always pass on the dunk contest. They put young guys with no flair out there and nobody cares.

That's a good list except Ray Ray

Add Jodi Meeks to that list as well

Why not?

He's not an allstar this season but he's on of one of the few best teams in the East, he's a house hold name, and not to mention he's STILL a good 3pt shooter...all the components that give David Stern a hard on when it comes to marketing.

There has to be 3 shooters from the east and 3 from the west. Aside from last years winner Kyrie Irving and MAYBE Paul George just because the NBA loves him right now, I dont see any other player from the East that the league would want in.

Why? Because the player either has to be an allstar caliber player, on an above .500 team come allstar weekend, or is leading the league in 3pt %. They almost NEVER let a good 3pt shooter on a bad team get in unless that player is from the city or team where the event is held.

Ill throw Irving in there as a lock over Ray Ray just b/c I forgot he won it last season. I took into consideration that the NBA doesnt care if you are statistically a good 3pt shooter over familiar names like Allen and Durant.

It wouldnt surprise me though if meeks made it over a guy like Belinelli since he's on the Lakers, but considering their record, it's unlikely imo.

Three point:Lillard,Thompson,Curry,Korver,Irving,Belinel li. It would be awesome.
Dunk:i dunno.Just put players people cares about,maybe a mix of old stars and new guys could be great.Carter(it won't happen),Green,George and Ross would be good.If Carter has still something left from his old days he should partecipate right now.

I was hoping Drummond would enter the dunk contest. He said he was gonna last year. He can do between the legs and 360s and ****.

Updated the thread title as it was coming off as if they were announced.

I know he won't do the dunk contest but I'd love to see Gerald Green do the 3pt contest.
