NBA fans may be treated to a thrilling rematch at next year's All-Star Weekend, as reports suggest that basketball sensations Stephen Curry and Caitlin Clark could headline a 3-point shootout extravaganza.

The anticipation stems from the electrifying showdown between Curry and WNBA star Sabrina Ionescu during the recent All-Star festivities. 

Curry narrowly edged out Ionescu, but the competitive spirit lingered as both expressed interest in a rematch for next year.

According to a report by Shams Charania, not only is Curry vs. Ionescu Part 2 highly probable, but there's a potential twist: a 2 vs. 2 battle featuring Clark and Klay Thompson joining the fray. 

The addition of Damian Lillard adds another layer of excitement, especially considering the event will be hosted in the Bay Area, home to both Lillard and Ionescu. Clark's inclusion promises to be a spectacle in itself, given her status as a generational 3-point shooter. 

Fresh off leading the Iowa Hawkeyes to the Final Four with a dazzling 41-point performance, including a record-breaking nine 3-pointers in a single NCAA tournament game, Clark is poised to make waves on the professional stage.

With Ionescu, who shattered the WNBA single-season 3-point record last year, alongside Clark, Curry and his potential partner face formidable competition. The NBA vs. WNBA 3-point shootout format has injected new excitement into All-Star Weekend, showcasing the timeless truth expressed by Ionescu: shooting prowess transcends gender boundaries.

While the previous All-Star Weekend received its share of criticism, the NBA vs. WNBA 3-point shootout emerged as a shining beacon of excitement and potential. As anticipation builds for next year's event, fans eagerly await the clash of titans on the hardwood, where sharpshooters from different leagues will vie for supremacy in the ultimate test of marksmanship.
