The Skills Challenge brings a new wrinkle this year, as frontcourt players will join the competition. Draymond Green is basically a point guard in a forward’s body, so it will probably feel pretty natural to him, but it’s going to fun to watch guys like DeMarcus Cousins, Anthony Davis and Karl-Anthony Towns make their way through the skills course that was originally designed for point guards.

Curry is clearly the main attraction, but a stacked field that includes guys like Klay Thompson, J.J. Redick, James Harden and Kyle Lowry means this is going to be fun to watch.
