This is the first time in NBA history that a trio of brothers will take the court at an All-Star weekend for a skills challenge. The Antetokounmpo brothers also became the first siblings to all win championships. Alex is also the first player to make an All-Star appearance without an official NBA contract. The Greeks are truly leaving a mark on the NBA.
The format will see the three teams compete in three challenges. Two teams with the most points from the three challenges advance to the finals. The first challenge is shooting. The second and third are team passing and team relay respectively. The half-court shot contest is the final challenge. All players will take attempts, the team that finishes it the quickest wins the skills challenge
