Brothers Stephen and Seth Curry, Dirk Nowitzki headline 2019 NBA 3-Point Contest


The 2019 NBA All-Star Game is nearly upon us. We still have yet to determine the rosters for Team LeBron and Team Giannis, but the rest of the events at All-Star Weekend have been set according to the NBA.

On Tuesday, the league announced which players would take part in the 2019 NBA 3-Point Contest. Several marquee shooters will headline the event in Charlotte, including locals Stephen and Seth Curry.

Also appearing will be Dallas Mavericks legend Dirk Nowitzki.

Here is the full roster for the 3-Point Contest, per the NBA.

Devin Booker
•Seth Curry
Stephen Curry
Danny Green
Joe Harris
Buddy Hield
Damian Lillard
Khris Middleton
•Dirk Nowitzki
Kemba Walker

This is a pretty impressive lineup. Steph is arguably the greatest shooter of all time, and brother Seth is having an excellent year percentage-wise for the Portland Trail Blazers. Booker won this event last season, and Nowitzki won it in 2006.

The 3-Point Contest might be the most consistently entertaining event at All-Star Weekend, so I’m excited to watch this one.

Things kick off on Saturday, Feb. 16 at 8 p.m. EST.
