This year's NBA All-Star Weekend was highlighted by Stephen Curry and Sabrina Ionescu competing in an NBA vs. WNBA 3-point shootout before the Saturday night schedule of events. Curry barely defeated Ionescu with 29 points to her 26, but almost immediately after the game, both women expressed a desire to compete again at next year's celebrations. 

"I don't know if anybody can fill these shoes, but it might have to be something that we do more often," Curry said after winning the inaugural event in February. (Source: CBS Sports).

According to Shams Charania Stephen Curry vs Sabrina Ionescu, Part 2 may happen during the NBA All-Star weekend which is going to take place in 2025 February. But this year Lowa Hawkeyes rising stars Caitlin Clark and Klay Thompson may join. She also added that Damian Lillard is also on the verge of joining. As the All-Star weekend is going to take place in the Bay Area next year Sabrina Ionescu and Damian Lillard may join the event.

If you can shoot, shoot - Stephen Curry

On Monday Caitlin Clark rose and guided the team into the second Final Four by defeating the regaining champions LSU Tigers. In that match, she scored 41 points which included nine three-pointers. Between her and Ionescu, who set the WNBA single-season 3-point record last season, the sharpshooting pair would be extremely difficult opposition for Stephen Curry and whoever decides to team up with him. 

While this season's All-Star Weekend received some criticism, one highlight was the NBA vs. WNBA 3-point shootout. There was enthusiasm and interest in this form of competition, and the future seems promising. And, as Ionescu stated after nearly defeating Curry, it demonstrated that, despite of gender, "If you can shoot, shoot."
