Watch NBA players miss a ton of halfcourt shots…except for Stephen Curry (VIDEO)

All-Star Saturday night had its ups and downs.

The three-point contest started slow but ended with some nice drama when Bradley Beal pushed eventual winner Marco Belinelli to a shoot-off. This is the only consistently enjoyable event, and it didn’t fail once again.

As for the dunk contest? It was…interesting? The team format was a little clunky, the dunks themselves weren’t overly impressive and John Wall showed that making a dunk on your first try is the way to go. Why don’t players change the dunk if they miss on the first try, I’ll never know. It’s about the element of surprise as much as the execution.

All things told it was an enjoyable experience as per usual, even if some of the best moments so far have happened outside of the more ballyhooed events.

Like this, for example. Check out Stephen Curry drain not one, not two, but three halfcourt shots in a row as every other NBA player assaults the basket with misses. Maybe Curry should have taken a few steps back in the three-point competition.

    He is an amazing shooter and these shots were fantastic. Shout out to Chris Bosh for hitting both of the half-court shots for his Shooting Stars team and winning the challenge for consecutive years.

    Im really surprised and not surprised at the same time.

    Steph Curry’s a good shooter but 3/4 from half court. Dayum.
