When is the Foot Locker Three Point Contest? Well, you know, it's hard to say. The events on All Star Saturday begin at 8:30 PM Eastern on TNT.

The three point contest is the third event of the night, so if I had to guess, I'd say that it would start around 9:30 or so. I may be wrong, but that's my best guess. The slam dunk contest is the final event of the night and that usually starts pretty late.

Kyrie Irving will be representing the Cleveland Cavaliers on this lovely Saturday night.

His competition in the three point shootout will be the Warriors' Stephen Curry, the Hornets' Ryan Anderson, the Pacers' Paul George, the Knicks' Steve Novak, and the Spurs' Matt Bonner.

According to Bovada, Kyrie Irving's odds to the win contest are 4 to 1. I think those are pretty good odds and if I were really lame and bet on things like the three point contest, I'd probably put my money on Kyrie Irving.
