When All-Star weekend arrives in Brooklyn next month, three of the league's premier shooters will be in the three-point contest. The Golden State Warriors' starting backcourt of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson will be participating in the event, as will Atlanta Hawks veteran Kyle Korver, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports.
The trio of Curry, Thompson and Korver will be the obvious draw. Curry is considered the front-runner for MVP halfway through the season. Thompson's name is hotter than ever after scoring 37 points (including 9-for-9 from three-point range) in the third quarter on Friday against the Sacramento Kings. Korver is leading the league in three-point percentage by making an impossible 53.1 percent of his attempts from deep.
