The next event will be the 3-point contest, as that event tests how fast a player can move to five different racks around the world with five balls in each of them in a 60-second span. Every rack includes at least one money ball, as each player gets to choose one rack where it’s all money balls.

Here are the participants:

Jaylen Brown

Jayson Tatum

Donovan Mitchell

Zach LaVine

Stephen Curry

The last, but not least event is the Slam Dunk Contest, which will take place during half-time of the All-Star Game this year. This contest seeks to test the creativity each and every dunker brings to the table, as they are graded on a scale from 6-10.

Here are the participants:
