NBA All-Star Sunday is nearly here, and the schedule is jam-packed. Due to COVID-19, an entire weekend of festivities has been condensed into one star-studded night.

It all starts with the skills and 3-point contests at 6:30 p.m. ET, followed by tipoff of the 70th NBA All-Star Game at 8 p.m. ET. At halftime, the dunk contest takes center stage before the coronation of the winner of Team LeBron vs. Team Durant.

Will LeBron James continue his undefeated run as All-Star captain? Will Stephen Curry capture his second 3-point contest title? Which young high flyer will soar to the dunk contest crown?

Our panel of NBA experts is picking the entire slate of action.
