Stephen Curry predicts he will win the Three-Point Contest

Stephen Curry Chats with AOL Sports Before NBA All-Star Game

Golden State Warriors guard Stephen Curry spent some time with AOL Sports to talk about his season thus far, how far his team could go and, of course, the Foot Locker Three-Point Contest on Saturday, Feb. 14.

When asked who will win the much-anticipated showcase, the All-Star and MVP candidate smiled and simply said, "me."

There's plenty of opinions and predictions out there.

According to our friend Ben Golliver at Sports Illustrated, here's another solid pick: Curry's teammate Klay Thompson:

"Slow clap to the league office employees who booked this contest. I like Thompson because he's a good spot-up shooter, he's got a quick release, he's not going to fold under pressure, and he's got a competitive edge that could be the difference-maker in what should be an entertaining event. Plus, he hung 37 points in a quarter on Nik Stauskas, who defends about as well as one of the ball racks they use in the competition."

Meanwhile, Rob Mahoney of SI counted with this argument: "Wesley Matthews, Trail Blazers. Admittedly, there are no logical grounds for choosing Matthews over Thompson, Stephen Curry, or Kyle Korver here. Call it a hunch. Matthews is a hyper-competitive sort who relishes having a chip on his shoulder. I think he'll take competing against a group of higher-profile shooters and higher-profile stars seriously, which for such a skilled shooter could give an edge. Whether that's enough to beat out the forementioned sharpshooters is another thing entirely, but I like Matthews' potential to play spoiler."
