Dirk for Kobe! One Night Only, Though.

Last night, the NBA announced that Dirk Nowitzki will replace Kobe Bryant in the Three-Point Shootout, which takes place at 7 p.m. on TNT tomorrow in New Orleans. On Sunday, of course, Nowitzki will be playing in the All-Star Game with Bryant, who's yet to get an exemption from the game due to his pinkie owie. This'll be Dirk's fifth time in the three-point contest -- won the sucker in '06. Here's video proof -- though you'll be distracted by Charles Barkley's Mavs commentary. --Robert Wilonsky
