ACB Contests

The ACB contests are the 3-point shootout and slam dunk contests held by the Liga ACB, the top-tier professional basketball league in the country of Spain.

History

During the 1990s, and through the 2002-03 season, these contests were celebrated during the ACB league's weekend festival, called Showtime ACB. From the 1991-92 season to the 1994-95 season, this weekend was organized by ULEB, and played with the Italian League all-stars. In 2003, the ACB decided not to organize the All-Star game anymore.

Since 2004, the contests are played during the Spanish Supercup, with the exception of the 2011-12 season, when they weren't organized, and the 2012-13 season, when it was celebrated during the presentation of the league in the headquarters of Endesa, the league's main sponsor.

Three-Point Shootout

Louis Bullock, three time winner of the three-point shootout contest.

The three-point shootout has the same format as the NBA one. For the 2009-10 and 2010-11 editions, there was the possibility of a magic three-pointer from 8-meters distance (26 feet 3 inches), which was worth four points.[1][2]

In some editions, a female player of the Spanish Women's League was invited. For the 2013 and 2014 contests, three-point shooting record-man Josh Ruggles, was invited.[3]
