The rest of the field includes Cleveland's Kyrie Irving, San Antonio's Tony Parker, Washington's John Wall, Oklahoma City's Russell Westbrook, and New Jersey's Deron Williams.

Curry won the event last year, and the other previous winners include: Steve Nash (twice), Derrick, Rose, Derron Williams and Dwyane Wade (twice), Baron Davis and Jason Kidd.
