I figure we might as well have an open thread if anyone is going to be watching The Skills Challenge, Three-Point Contest, and the Slam Dunk Competition tonight.
With KP injured, the Knicks won’t have anyone involved in any of the competitions tonight, but honestly, it’s been a long time since we ever expected to see Knicks in these things, right? Even back in the day, John Starks never participated in the three-point shooting contest and Allan Houston only did it once. In fact, very few Knicks have ever participated in any of the major events. KP, Kenny Walker and Nate are the only Knicks to ever win any of the major All-Star Game competitions.
But hey, it’s still fun!
The dunk contest should be a good one this year. Larry Nance Jr. trying to become the first father/son dunk contest champions!
