Though some may feel that NBA All-Star Weekend is not important, it is by far my favorite All-Star game of any league.
Each NBA All-Star weekend, the NBA asks some of it's star players to represent their teams in events on NBA All-Star Saturday Night.
The events include the Taco Bell Skills Challenge, the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest, the Foot Locker Three-Point Shoot Out, the Haier Shooting Stars and the second-year Geico H.O.R.S.E competition.
Throughout this week, I will be having an in-depth look at all of the competitions. This will be a look at the Taco Bell Skills Challenge, where reigning campion Derrick Rose has returned to participate once again.
The Taco Bell Skills Challenge is a passing, dribbling and shooting competition timed. The two fastest times go into the finals while the other two are eliminated. The fastest of the two finalists is the winner of the Taco Bell Skills Challenge.
