“I’m looking forward to it (the 3-point contest),” Howard said. “I want to say thank you to all the fans in Taiwan who voted for me and my other teammates.”
“I want to enjoy it as much as I can. It’s the first time I’m playing with other players in the T1 league, so I’m going to go out and do slam dunks, shoot three-pointers and make the game very competitive,” he said.
“It means a lot to me and the other players who will be playing in the All-Star game. I will do my best.”
