NBA fans across the nation were anticipating the announcement of Zach LaVine's involvement in the 2020 All-Star Weekend. Well, the report of him agreeing to participate came Monday, but not without a pretty significant twist.

According to Shams Charania, LaVine has surprisingly agreed to partake in the 3-point contest.

Sorry, folks. Those of you hoping to see a rematch of the ultra-exciting 2016 Slam Dunk Contest featuring LaVine and Aaron Gordon will unfortunately be disappointed.

While Gordon announced his intention to participate in the Dunk Contest, LaVine has shockingly declared for a different one of the weekend's most popular events, leaving everyone robbed of his high-flying and tenacious dunks.

LaVine being invited to the 3-point contest isn't exactly shocking considering the Bulls guard is firing from downtown at a 37.6% clip. Still, his skill beyond the arc isn't exactly what has made the former UCLA standout a household name, and fans were eager to see what creative dunks he would concoct this time around.

Instead, we'll get the pleasure of watching him hoist up 25 3-point attempts in one minute. Yay?
