INDIANAPOLIS – In the heart of Indianapolis, amidst the glitz and glamor of the NBA All-Star festivities, history was made. A crossover event of epic proportions unfolded as two of basketball’s brightest stars, Sabrina Ionescu and Stephen Curry, took center stage for a 3-point shootout like never before.

For the first time in the event’s storied history, a WNBA player stepped up to the challenge alongside her NBA counterparts. Our own Ionescu, showcased her unparalleled shooting prowess in a display that left fans in awe.

However, standing in her path was none other than the Golden State Warriors sharpshooting guard, Steph Curry. With his trademark flair and precision, Curry ultimately claimed the coveted 3-point challenge belt and etched his name in All-Star lore once again.

Yet, amidst Curry’s performance, let us not forget the groundbreaking feat achieved by Ionescu, tying NBA back-to-back 3-point contest champion Damian Lillard, with 26 points. She not only held her own against the best shooters in the NBA but continues to hold her place in history as the record holder for the most 3-pointers made in the challenge, 37, a title that transcends gender boundaries.

This crossover event was more than just a showcase of elite shooting. It was a celebration of inclusivity and equality in basketball. It shattered stereotypes and opened doors for future collaborations between the NBA and WNBA stars.

As we reflect on this historic moment, one can’t help but wonder what the future holds. The possibilities are endless, and the excitement is palpable.
