Kyle Lowry in 3-Point Shootout highlights participants list for All-Star Saturday Night

NBA All-Star Weekend has taken shape, with the NBA announcing the participants for All-Star Saturday night on Thursday.

Kyle Lowry highlights the announcement, as he’ll represent the Toronto Raptors at home in the 3-Point Shootout. Familiarity and comfort could be an advantage in such a competition, and Lowry will know the Air Canada Centre rims well, but the competition is incredibly stiff.

Lowry will square off against Steph Curry, Klay Thompson, Devin Booker, J.J. Redick, James Harden, Khris Middleton, and Chris Bosh, a ridiculously stacked field. If you boo Bosh, I’ll fight you.

There’s a small amount of pressure on Lowry, as no other Raptor will participate that night. The Dunk Contest will feature Zach LaVine, Andre Drummond, Aaron Gordon, and Will Barton (more on that here), while the Skills Competition will pit DeMarcus Cousins against Anthony Davis, Karl-Anthony Towns, Draymond Green, Jordan Clarkson, C.J. McCollum, Isaiah Thomas, and Patrick Beverley.
