This year VR will bring a new experience to fans. You'll feel like you've become part of the action. Players in the Skills Challenge will be showcasing their overall abilities including ball-handling, passing, and three-point shooting. Anthony Davis, DeMarcus Cousins, Gordon Hayward, Isaiah Thomas, John Wall, Devin Booker, Kristaps Porzingis, and Joel Embiid will compete in this year's event. Experience it in VR for the first time ever in NextVR.
For the first time ever, the three-point contest is available in Virtual Reality. Defending champion Klay Thompson of the Golden State Warriors and 2013 winner Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers lead the list of four NBA All-Stars who will showcase their shooting range. The eight-player field also features 2017 All-Stars Kyle Lowry of the Toronto Raptors and Kemba Walker of the Charlotte Hornets, as well as Eric Gordon of the Houston Rockets, Wesley Matthews of the Dallas Mavericks, CJ McCollum of the Portland Trail Blazers, and Nick Young of the Los Angeles Lakers. In VR, you'll experience it as if you were courtside.
Experience the force of the contestants' rim-rocking dunks in VR for the first time ever. The Orlando Magic's Aaron Gordon, last year's runner-up, and NBA All-Star DeAndre Jordan of the LA Clippers will take flight in New Orleans. Gordon and Jordan are joined in the four-player field by Derrick Jones, Jr. of the Phoenix Suns and Glenn Robinson III of the Indiana Pacers. The Slam Dunk Contest in VR will change the game forever.
The 2017 All-Star Game is the first ever available in virtual reality. Now you can experience all of the three-pointers, rebounds, and dunks in mind-blowing NextVR. It's like sitting courtside, watching the greatest players on earth right in front of you.
