always post the story with the link..

New York, NY (Sports Network) - Reigning Rookie of the Year winner Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls will defend his Skills Challenge crown during All- Star weekend against two past winners of the event and an up-and-coming rookie.

Rose, who was also named to his first All-Star Game this year, will take on Phoenix's Steve Nash, Utah's Deron Williams and Bucks rookie Brandon Jennings on Saturday, February 13 at American Airlines Center in Dallas.

Nash won the Skills Challenge in 2005, while Williams, a Dallas native, took home the 2008 crown.

The Skills Challenge consists of four players competing in a two-round timed obstacle course with dribbling, passing and shooting stations.

Due to his busy weekend, Rose has been replaced in the Rookie Challenge game by Golden State's Anthony Morrow. The game is scheduled to take place Friday, February 12.

And that makes sense, cuz he's gonna be in the sophomore team in the rookie challenge game, he's also gonna be a reserve all-star for the East. ANd he also has to go through that all-star game media stuff and the East all-stars practice thing.

WOW, I am a bulls fan, and Im a bit upset, but Morrow, this guy is a killer shooter, but not Skill challege worthy, put a real player in there, Rondo even would be better, but not Morrow, please,

He has already decided not to play in the Rok Sof game, and was replaced by morrow there as well, its odd the morrow replaced him in both games ???

agree, Rondo should've been in this competition over Morrow. Morrow shouldve been picked for the 3-pt contest.

I wonder who makes these boneheaded decisions :confused:

Rose is sitting out of the Rokie Sophmore game because he got excepted to the Allstar game

He is still defending his title at the skills challenge,

at the end of the article when it says Rose will sit out due to a busy schedule, in other words, he could not do the Rok sof game because of the allstar game

HE IS IN THE ALLSTAR GAME

HE IS IN THE SKILLS CHALLEGE

Derrick Rose excused from Rookie-Sophmore Challenge Due To Playing In NBA All Star Game (http://sports.espn.go.com/chicago/news/story?id=4881130)


and morrow is out for the season?



Anthony Morrow said his sprained knee felt fine in shootaround and he expects to play on Saturday.

Morrow has been out for over three weeks and fantasy owners should take a wait-and-see approach to his role in the Warriors' ever-changing rotation. He's worth stashing away in deep leagues, however, and average leagues if you're looking for a source of 3s.

Hes not out for the season.

A little disappointed. I also could have sworn that Sam Smith posted something about a rule change where Rookies and sophomores couldn't decline the invitation if they made the allstar team...

Wish Hill would have been selected over Morrow. Woulda been cool to see him throwin some dunks down.
