No, unfortunately Ant won’t be in the dunk contest, like Wolves fans have been longing for. He will participate in the skills competition, though, another All-Star competition KAT has already won. Karl, later that night, will go for another 3-point contest trophy.

Chris Finch also earned the honor of coaching the West on Sunday night, at the All-Star game. Even t hough the Timberwolves now sit 3rd place in the conference now, they stood on top a few nights ago when All-Star coaches were named.
