SALT LAKE CITY — Just before NBA Crossover opened its doors for fans at the Salt Palace Convention Center in Salt Lake City, FOX 13's Scott McKane got in on all the action.

Three-point contests with a grand prize of $33,000 and virtual races where you are your own avatar are just some of the activities attendees will be able to experience.

At the AT&T booth, attendees can turn themselves into NBA players using a 3D body scanner and race through a virtual course for tokens and show off some sweet moves.

The scanner captures the player's face as well as their outfit, so avatars will look exactly like the guest is really running through the clouds as an NBA player.

FOX 13's Scott Mckane got scanned and played the game, where he raced through the course and strutted a victory dance.

While waiting to be scanned, guests can participate in dunk contest games where they compete as current NBA players.
