The crossover three-point contest in the All-Star Weekend between Stephen Curry and Sabrina Ionescu was such a huge success the NBA is thinking about doing an encore. This time, it could be the first-ever two-on-two shootout that may include Klay Thompson and Caitlin Clark.

Shams Charania of FanDuel TV has the scoop about the league’s plans for the 2025 All-Star Weekend in San Francisco. 

At this point, Stephen Curry vs. Sabrina Ionescu is very likely for next year. Next year’s All-Star Weekend, guys, is gonna be in the Bay Area, in San Francisco at Chase Center in 2025. And I’m told Caitlin Calrk and potentially Klay Thompson to make it 2V2. 

I’m told Stephen Curry brought up potentially having Klay Thompson for next year. Could a guy like Damian Lillard, a big candidate to join Steph Curry, but those two guys potentially against Sabrina Ionescu and Caitlin Clark? Those are the conversations that will continue to go on in the coming months.

Clark, fresh off a masterful performance in the NCAA championship game, is making a buzz among basketball circles. The Iowa product could join the BIG3 for $5 million or join the WNBA. Either way, she will take the hoops world by storm as she did the NCAA.

The three-point contest between Ionescu and Curry last February went down to the wire. The New York Liberty guard set the bar high with 26 points, but the NBA’s all-time leader in three-pointers made scored 29 to secure the win. 

Ionescu made 45% of her deep attempts last season and Clark is practically a walking legend. Put these two ladies on the stage against the Splash Brothers and it will be a hell of a show. 

Before the Ionescu-Curry shootout, NBA players are split on who they think will win the contest. Bring Clark and Thompson into the picture and it gets even more exciting.
