NBA All-Star Weekend 2014: Skills Challenge Rosters

How are you liking NBA All-Star Weekend so far?

Great, right.

Well guess what… it’s going to get a whole lot better!

The festivities kicked off Friday night with a couple of appetizers as the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game started the show, followed by the very entertaining Rising Stars Challenge to conclude the night.

Now it’s time for the entrées. And luckily for you, there’s four separate options.

I already told you about the first in the Shooting Stars event, now let me introduce #2: Skills Challenge

Per NBA.com:

The Taco Bell® Skills Challenge is introducing a new format that features four teams of two players each competing in a two-round timed relay-style course consisting of dribbling, passing and shooting stations.


All teams must observe basic NBA ball-handling rules while completing the course. The fastest team from each Conference during the First Round will advance to the Championship Round. The fastest team in the Championship Round will win the 2014 Taco Bell® Skills Challenge


Here are the rosters for the Skills Challenge:


> Team One: Giannis Antetokounmpo (Bucks) and DeMar DeRozan (Raptors)

> Team Two: Michael Carter-Williams (76ers) and Victor Oladipo (Magic)



Team One: Trey Burke (Jazz) and Damian Lillard (Trail Blazers)

> Team Two: Goran Dragic (Suns) and Reggie Jackson (Thunder)

Sponsored by State Farm, coverage of All-Star Saturday Night tips-off at 8:00 p.m. (ET) on TNT.
