Damian Lillard plans to participate in 3-point Contest during 2023 NBA All-Star weekend

Portland Trail Blazers superstar guard Damian Lillard plans to participate in the 3-Point Contest of the 2023 NBA All-Star Weekend.

Lillard has been on a tear this season, currently averaging a career-high 30.7 points per game on a career-high true shooting percentage of 64.3.

The 32-year-old has also knocked down the seventh-most 3-pointers of any player this season with 161.

With such a stellar performance, it doesn’t come as a surprise that Damian Lillard has been invited to the 3-Point Contest, or that he has been named as an All-Star for the seventh time.

Lillard has taken part in every competition that takes place at the All-Star Weekend that an active player can participate in: the Rising Stars Challenge, the Skills Challenge, the Dunk Contest, the 3-Point Contest and the All-Star Game.

The last time Damian Lillard competed in the 3-Point Contest was in 2019, but he didn’t make it past the first round.

He also competed in 2014, when he became the first player in NBA history to participate in all five events.
