It’s going to be a Curry-filled 3-point contest in Charlotte for All-Star weekend, as Portland Trail Blazers point guard Seth Curry will compete in the 3-point shooting, joining his brother, Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry.
Both Curry brothers were born and raised in Charlotte, North Carolina.
Portland guard Seth Curry will compete in the three-point shooting contest on All-Star Weekend in his hometown of Charlotte, league sources tell ESPN.

Seth Curry is second in the NBA in 3-point percentage. The sharpshooter is shooting 48.0 percent from beyond the arc this season. Stephen Curry is shooting 44.4 percent for the Warriors, who rank sixth in the league.
Seth Curry is averaging 6.0 points, 1.5 rebounds and 1.0 assists per game for the Trail Blazers. The 28-year-old has appeared in 44 games this season and is shooting 43.4 percent overall. He signed a one-year, $2.795 million free-agent deal with Portland last summer.
Seth and Stephen’s dad, Dell Curry, is the TV broadcaster for the Hornets. Dell is one of the best shooters in NBA history. He made 1,245 3-pointers during his NBA playing career while shooting 40.2 percent.
Phoenix Suns star shooting guard Devin Booker won the 2018 3-point contest. Booker scored an event record 28 points in the final round to defeat Klay Thompson. It would be pretty cool to see Seth Curry or Stephen Curry win the contest this season in their hometown.
