With Khris Middleton set to return to the 3-Point Contest in 2019, what does the Milwaukee Bucks’ history look like for All-Star Saturday events?
(Editor’s note: This is an update of a post that was originally published on February 17, 2018.)
Almost universally regarded as one of the most entertaining and highly anticipated nights on the NBA calendar, Saturday night at All-Star Weekend provides fans with a chance to see some of the game’s greats go head-to-head in skills-based challenges.
The Skills Challenge, 3-Point Contest, and the Slam Dunk Contest have provided a long list of memorable moments over the years, and the Milwaukee Bucks have had their own part to play in many of them.
As All-Star Weekend comes to Charlotte in 2019, not only do the Bucks boast two All-Stars and the Eastern Conference’s chosen coaching staff, but they’ll also have a representative in Saturday’s festivities.
Khris Middleton will appear in the 3-Point Contest for the second time, and he’ll be hoping to do much better than the first round elimination he suffered in his 2016 debut in the event.
The Dunk Contest has previously had Bucks participants on three occasions, 3-Point Contest contestants will have represented Milwaukee nine times following Middleton’s latest appearance, and three Bucks have also suited up for the Skills Challenge over the years.
Who are the Bucks players who’ve represented the city and the franchise on previous stagings of All-Star Saturday, though?
Let’s take a look at the complete list of Bucks representatives.
