The 2013 NBA Sprite Slam-Dunk Contest and NBA Foot Locker Three-Point Contest are two of the more highly-anticipated events of All-Star weekend. The dunk contest, which has certainly lost some luster with the bigger names of the league passing up entry, is still very exciting for the fans.
The 2012 dunk contest champion Jeremy Evans of the Utah Jazz will defend his crown Saturday, Feb. 16, in Houston, but he is not the favorite. The early indications have New York’s James White as the favorite, with Indiana Pacers guard Gerald Green also a heavy favorite to hoist this year’s trophy.
In the 3-pointer contest, we have a few more big names. Golden State Warriors sharpshooter Stephen Curry accepted an invitation, and he goes off as a 2/1 favorite. He’ll have his work cut out if he wants to hold off New York Knicks triple-threat Steve Novak and Cleveland Cavaliers second-year man Kyrie Irving also expected to do big things.
Here are the opening odds at Bovada.lv for the two events.
