After a wild Skills Challenge that ended with Jayson Tatum topping Trae Young on a stunning half-court shot in the final, the scene was set for an intriguing three-point contest headlined by Stephen Curry.
There was a bit of an interlude before the actual contest began, however, when Dell Curry joined his sons on the floor to cue up what became something pretty cool.
In short, the Curry family came together to contribute $35,000 to Classroom Central, a local charity in Charlotte, and that money came with the added benefit of a “legends” shootout featuring Mark Price, Ray Allen, Glen Rice and Dell Curry himself.
The end result wasn’t as great as it could have been, with the four legends not exactly cooking from three-point distance under the bright lights. In the same breath, it was a fun setting to donate money to charity (which is always a positive thing) and, quite honestly, it was a cool use of the host city of Charlotte, especially when seeing Price and Rice firing away.
Oh, and Dell managed to poke fun at himself and his friends in saying things were a “little different” this time around. Everybody had a good time and money went to a great cause. That’s the definition of a win-win.
