A Milwaukee Bucks player hasn't won the Three-Point competition since Ray Allen in 2001. Khris Middleton is looking to change that tonight.
Middleton will participate in the Foot Locker Three-Point contest at All-Star weekend in Toronto hoping to steal the crown from reigning champ and NBA MVP Stephen Curry. Curry, along with teammate Klay Thompson, Los Angeles'J.J. Redick, Phoenix's Devin Booker, Portland's C.J. McCollum (replacing Chris Bosh), Houston's James Harden and Toronto's own Kyle Lowry will join Middleton in this year's competition.
The Bucks have already represented well in Toronto. Yesterday Bucks owner Marc Lasry participated and showed out in the Celebrity Game, while forward Jabari Parker appeared in the Rising Stars Challenge and threw down a good slate of high-flying dunks.
