One of the NBA's snubbed players for this year's All-Star Game, Stephen Curry, has received an invite to participate in the ASG Three-Point Contest. Although Curry did not receive an invite to play in the game, he may still participate in the contest. Curry, who has battled through injuries this year understands it would be a big commitment to go just for the three-point shooting contest.
Curry spoke with Real GM about the proposition of going to Houston for the contest.
“It would be a big commitment heading down there for one event so I’m figuring out if I’m going to make that commitment,” Curry told RealGM on Saturday night.
Curry probably should have received an invite to play in the actual All-Star Game as well as the three-point contest. He is averaging 21.0 points and 6.5 assists per game. Beyond that, he is leading the Golden State Warriors to a surprisingly successful season.
Golden State is currently fifth in the Western Conference standings. They will look to maintain and improve upon that position with Curry's help throughout the second-half of the season. There is little risk if Curry goes to participate in the three-point contest, but he has the chance to rest during the All-Star break since was wasn't invited to play. He should have a decision soon.
