The Chicago Bulls' Derrick Rose will defend his title in the 2010 Taco Bell Skills Challenge against Brandon Jennings of the Milwaukee Bucks, Steve Nash of the Phoenix Suns and Deron Williams of the Utah Jazz, as part of NBA All-Star Saturday Night on Feb. 13, at American Airlines Center in Dallas. The 2010 field features three of the event's six previous winners.

With stations testing dribbling, passing and shooting, the Taco Bell Skills Challenge is an excellent measure of a players' overall game. The competitors must navigate through a series of obstacles, shooting stations and passing areas in the fastest time possible. The Skills Challenge is tailor-made for point guards and is a showcase for the NBA's best backcourt players.

In 2009, Rose electrified the All-Star Saturday Night crowd by finishing his final round with a reverse dunk to claim the title.

Only thing IMO that would have made it better would be if Paul replaced Jennings ( nothing against Jennings, but Paul is sick )

Also, to anyone who wants to cry about, Rondo should not have made it, it would have taken him too many attempts to hit a lid range jumper, just look at his FT %.

Well I got half of it right :shrug:
I'm a little surprised that Nash is doing it again. I thought they'd put more new blood in like Rondo or Westbrook.

Just want to make sure this thread is ok in the NBA forum, since it has Derrick Roses name in it. Dont want to upset everyone. And the less I see of Rondo the better IMO.

Deron will protect his title this year. He would have been in it last year but chose to heal his injuries instead.

well he is not over nash, cause nash is a better player and more popular.

and like that other poster said, he would take too long on hittin that jumper, he could embarass himself, i wouldnt be suprised if he declined an offer for that very reason

Because Nash is clearly better, and this is actually an event where Jennings can excel in. Rondo, on the other hand, has to learn to make a shot ft line and on, first. With that said, I still thought he'd be in and I'm a little surprised Nash is in considering his age.

Kind of bummed Rondo didn't make it. Good cast nonetheless.

Can't believe Aaron Brooks didn't get chosen. Quickest player in the NBA.

Deron will give Dee Rose a run for his money but in the end Rose repeats.

The NBA saved Rondo the embarrassment. He would probably miss all shooting parts of the contest. Also this competition is for PGs with Skills, Rondo is only good at D and attacking the basket.

Dammit. I thought for sure Duhon would get in it. :mad:

i predicted pretty close. Jennings was going to make it cuz they always send in a rookie. Nash deserved it, but I think Rondo or Brooks should have gotten in instead of Deron.

gonna be a good skills challenge, but would of prefer to see paul over jennings but paul is injured though.

I think Jennings is going to win. His passing ability maybe last among the 4, but he's really quick and has a very good shot (it's usually the mid-range jumper a lot of players mess up on)

This should be exciting! Can dROSE tops his performance as he said he took his time last year? Well, he's going up againts Nash&D.Will, two players who has the 2 fastest lap in this event. Nash nearly perfected the lap as Williams did a perfect lap. With 9.8 seconds difference between Rose's lap and Williams fastest lap, will this event be more exciting than last year?

I just hope nobody throws the ball on the mid range station just like Wade did.
