3-Point Shootout/Contest

It is one of the main NBA All Star Week 2022 Events. The Three-Point Contest is a competition organized by the National Basketball Association (NBA) on the Saturday before the annual All-Star Game as part of All-Star Weekend.

The tournament had ten contestants in the 2019 edition. From its inception in 1986 through 2018, eight people were chosen to compete in the shootout each season. The Golden State Warriors’ Stephen Curry was the most recent winner of the event, which took place at Atlanta’s State Farm Arena.


In this competition, contestants attempt to make as many three-point field goals as they can in one minute from five different places behind the three-point line. Players start shooting from one corner of the floor and proceed along the three-point arc from station to station until they reach the opposite corner. Each shooting station has a five-basketball rack. The usual orange Spalding game balls are worth one point, while the fifth ball (a red/white/blue ABA-style ball; often nicknamed the “money ball”) is worth two points.

The objective of this competition is to get as many points as possible in one minute. 30 points used to be considered a perfect score. Since the 2014 competition, a rack of solely “money balls” has been added, which can be placed on any of the five positions chosen by the player, raising the highest possible score to 34 points. Two additional Mountain Dew shots were inserted on each side of the top of the key in the 2020 competition, each worth three points. The maximum potential score was increased to 40 points, while the time limit was increased from 60 to 70 seconds.

Each player gets the opportunity to score as many points as possible in the qualifying round. The top three scorers progress to the championship round. The final round follows the same format as the qualifying round, except that players shoot in ascending order according on their first-round scores. The referee and the television instant replay technology certify the shots and the score in each round. The final round will be played in reverse (left to right corner for a left-handed shooter and vice versa). In the event of a tie, additional 30-second rounds (1 minute in the final) are played to determine the winner.

In the first round, each participant attempts two dunks, and the top two scorers progress to the final round. To select a champion, the remaining players each perform one dunk.

How Slam Dunk Contest Begins

The American Basketball Association (ABA) introduced the competition during its All-Star Game in Denver in 1976, the same year the slam dunk became authorized in the National Collegiate Athletic Association. There would not be another professional slam dunk contest until 1984, as a result of the ABA–NBA merger later that year.

NBA All-Star Weekend Skill Challenge | Taco Bell Challenge

The third and most awaited NBA All Star Week 2022 Events is Skill Challenge. The NBA Skills Challenge (formally known as the Taco Bell Skills Challenge) is a National Basketball Association (NBA) competition that takes place on the Saturday before the annual All-Star Game. It is a part of All-Star Weekend.

It is a competition that was inaugurated in 2003 to assess ball-handling, passing, and shooting ability. Two competitors compete on similar courses by dribbling through five obstacles while running down the court in the current edition of the competition. After that, the player must pass to an upright basket. The players must then dribble the entire length of the court for a layup.

How Champion is decided in Skill Challenge Game?

The champion is currently determined through a single-elimination tournament format, with a guard and a frontcourt player guaranteed to face battle in the final round.

Frontcourt players were originally allowed and invited to compete in the event in 2016, and since then, the event has crowned centers and forwards as champions, starting with Karl-Anthony Towns in 2016, followed by Kristaps Porziis in 2017, Bam Adebayo in 2020, and current champion Domantas Sabonis.
