The NBA has released information on the All-Star skills competition, including 3-point shots, dunking, and some other competitions. There will be 15 athletes Tuesday who will be participating in an on-court event along with the All-Star. The dunking event will be held at halftime and the 3-point will be held at pregame.

Only 18 teams will be having on-court representatives, this number being much lower because of the pandemic. None of last year’s winning title winners will be there to defend their title spot. The teams that will not be participating this year are Atlanta, Charlotte, Cleveland, Detroit, Houston, Memphis, Miami, Minnesota, Oklahoma City, Sacramento, San Antonio, and Toronto.
