The Bell NBA All-Star Challenge, presented by AIRMILES, is on the hunt for the best basketball players in Calgary. Whether you’ve got a shot that can’t be beat, skills to measure up against the pros, or a dunk that has to be seen to be believed, the NBA All-Star Challenge is looking for you!
The Calgary stop is just one of many across the country. The finalists from each of the three events – Skills Challenge, 3-point Shootout, and Dunk Contest – will go on to compete in the Dinos game later that day, while top competitors nationwide will get the chance to win an all-expense paid trip to compete in the NBA All-Star Challenge 2016, February 12 to 14 in Toronto.
Former NBA superstar Mike Bibby will be on location, as well as official NBA mascots and cheerleaders.
