During NBA All-Star weekend, Sabrina Ionescu will participate in a groundbreaking event. Following her flawless performance in the WNBA three-point contest last year, she is set to challenge Steph Curry in a unique three-point shootout.
Set apart from the NBA three-point contest, Curry and Ionescu will go head-to-head exclusively against each other. Initially planned to shoot from their respective three-point lines, Ionescu has expressed her readiness to shoot from the NBA line.
As anticipation builds for this historic event, numerous NBA players have been asked to weigh in on the outcome.
Kyrie Irving is among the latest to share his thoughts, favoring Sabrina Ionescu over the Golden State Warriors star.
“I’m pulling for Sabrina,” Irving said. “No disrespect to you Steph, I love you, big bro. But the same time, she got the record man.” Irving, currently in his first full season with the Dallas Mavericks, has faced setbacks due to injuries but has demonstrated All-Star caliber play when healthy. He is averaging 25.2 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 5.5 assists this season.
