It's time for the most popular part of All-Star weekend and our state is represented in every event. The action is set to being at 5:30 pm Pacific Time, so let's get started.

Degree Shooting Stars

As if we weren't all going to pull for Team Curry anyways, they went and added Sue Bird from the Seattle Storm.

Chris Bosh, Miami Heat
Dominique Wilkins, retired
Swin Cash, New York Liberty
Team Westbrook
Russell Westbrook, Oklahoma City Thunder
Anfernee Hardaway, retired
Tamika Catchings, Indiana Fever

Taco Bell Skills Challenge

Seattle native and Washington Husky Isaiah Thomas is taking part in this one. The event has a new, tournament-style format this year which should be pretty fun to watch.

Participants
Patrick Beverley, Houston Rockets
Trey Burke, Utah Jazz (reigning champion)
Brandon KnightMilwaukee Bucks
Kyle LowryToronto Raptors
Elfrid Payton, Orlando Magic
Dennis Schroder, Atlanta Hawks
Jeff Teague, Atlanta Hawks
Isaiah Thomas, Phoenix Suns

Foot Locker Three-Point Contest

We go from rooting for Curry to rooting against him, as Washington State Cougar Klay Thompson takes on his Splash Brother, as well as two former champs. Is this the most stacked shootout in history? I vote yes.

Participants
Marco Belinelli, San Antonio Spurs (reigning champion)
Stephen Curry, Golden State Warriors
James Harden, Houston Rockets
Kyrie Irving, Cleveland Cavaliers
Kyle Korver, Atlanta Hawks
Wesley Matthews, Portland Trail Blazers
J.J. Redick, Los Angeles Clippers
Klay Thompson, Golden State Warriors

Sprite Slam Dunk

Renton native and Bothell High School graudate Zach LaVine is the most popular bet here. Will he live up the hype or will he fizzle out like past favorites such as Shannon Brown and James White?

Participants
Giannis Antetokounmpo, Milwaukee Bucks
Zach LaVine, Minnesota Timberwolves
Victor Oladipo, Orlando Magic
Mason Plumlee, Brooklyn Nets
