NBA All-Star Saturday Night

Jeremy Evens, winner of last year's dunk contest.

For the first time, State Farm All Star Saturday Night will feature a new format that pits the Eastern Conference against the Western Conference in a night of competition that will raise money for charity. There are 4 separate events on tap for Saturday Night.

The Sears Shooting Stars contest features one current NBA player, one current WNBA player and one NBA legend on each team.

The Taco Bell Skills Challenge was introduced at NBA All-Star 2003 in Atlanta and features players competing in a two-round timed "obstacle course" consisting of dribbling, passing and shooting stations.

The Foot Locker Three-Point Contest features five shooting stations set up around the three-point line, with four Official Spalding NBA game balls worth one point each and one Spalding NBA All-Star 2013 commemorative red, white and blue "money ball" worth two points at each location. Each player will have one minute to make as many points as he can.

The Sprite Slam Dunk Contest is the centerpiece of All-Star Saturday Night and the one of the most anticipated events of the season.
