via: VAVEL.

This year marks the 35th three-point contest in NBA history. Despite the challenging circumstance surrounding All-Star weekend, it is shaping up great and something to look forward to. 

The three-point contest this year has some of the most star power it has had in recent history. Every single competitor this year will also feature in the All-Star game that same day.

Here's a look at all the stars taking part:

Jaylen Brown from the Boston Celtics will enter his first three-point competition along with his first appearance in an NBA All-Star game. 

Brown is averaging a career-high 24.8 points per game. He is attempting 5.9 threes a game whilst shooting 38.9% from beyond the arc.

Brown's teammate, Jayson Tatum, will also compete in his first three-point contest.

Tatum makes his second All-Star game appearance after the competition and his first appearance as a starter after Kevin Durant's injury.

He is averaging 24.9 points per game and shooting 36.4% from three whilst attempting 7.1 a game. He averages an impressive 39.5% from three across his whole career.

Devin Booker, from the Phoenix Suns, also joins the star-studded contestants in the three-point competition. Booker won the contest back in 2018 and looks to win it for a second time. 

He is averaging 25.2 points a game while shooting 36.7% from three. Like Tatum, he will also make his second appearance in an NBA All-Star game.

Zach LaVine also enters the competition for the second straight year in a row. The two-time Slam Dunk Contest champion also makes his first All-Star appearance. 

The star of the Chicago Bulls is averaging 28.5 points per game while shooting a career-high 43.3% from three. He is also averaging 8.1 attempted threes a game.

Donavon Mitchell also enters the competition. The star of the Utah Jazz, who currently holds the best record in the NBA, makes his second All-Star game appearance this year. 

Mitchell is averaging 24.4 points per game and shooting a career-high 38% from three. He is also attempting a career-high of 8.6 threes a game. 

The favorite of the competition has to be none other than Stephen Curry. Curry is considered the greatest shooter of all time and will enter his seventh three-point contest. 

He won this competition back in 2015 and joins Booker as the only one competing who has won before. 

Curry is averaging 29.5 points a game for the Golden State Warriors. He is shooting 41.3% from beyond the arc whilst attempting 11.7 threes a game.

Can the greatest shooter the game has ever seen win it for the second time?
