Can Stephen Curry retain his crown?

Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports

This may very be the most exciting competition in all of NBA All-Star Weekend! Stephen Curry, indisputably the greatest shooter in the league, finally broke through last year and claimed the title, beating out Klay Thompson and Kyrie Irving.

Now, will he be able to go back to back? This year's field is varied and deep. In addition to Klay, Steph is joined by the Rockets' James Harden and the Raptors' Kyle Lowry. Specialists J.J. Redick, Khris Middleton and Devin Booker will also be there, looking to pull off the upset.

C.J. McCollum will also join, after being tabbed as a late replacement for the Miami Heat's Chris Bosh. (Side note, how awesome would it have been to watch Bosh compete?!)

But let's be real, this is Steph's contest to lose. Sure, he's not leading the league in 3pt percentage (that award goes to Kawhi Leonard), but he is on pace to SHATTER his own record for made three pointers in a season. Really, in the midst of such a historic run, you'd expect him to rise to the challenge and throw down some fire.

Otherwise, why even enter your name in the competition in the first place?

Last year he scored 27 points (money balls count for two) en route to winning.

Here, bask in the glory of rememberance:

Do you think he's capable of knocking down even more shots this year?

Side Note:

Can we PLEAAAASE get rid of the TV announcers speaking over the PA so that the players hear them too?!

If you need a refresher of how awkward it was last year, just read this Reddit thread.

Okay, moving on.
