All Star Weekend 2015: Hang out for Slam Dunk and three point shooting contest

New, comments

Kyrie Irving! Cool dunk!

Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports

I have to admit, I've got tonight's festivities DVR'd. It's Valentine's Day, and bucking about 10 consecutive years of tradition, I actually have plans. It's not a bummer, really, because I'm a big fan of the person I'm hanging out with tonight. And DVR's are pretty cool.

But tonight should be really fun, and you can hang out here to discuss all the great stuff that goes down. Kyrie Irving will take on the best shooters in the world (of which he is one!) in the three point shooting contest. Then, Zach Lavine and a bunch of other really athletic dudes will attempt, and even complete, some crazy dunks. It all starts at 8:00 pm ET on TNT.

Irving is trying to replicate his 2013 three point contest championship. He's shooting 41% from three point range this season, made more impressive by the fact that many of his attempts come off the bounce. Your proto-typical spot-up shooter he is not. So have fun, and go Cavs.
