Skills Challenge Kicks off official All-Star Weekend contests
Last season Deron Williams of the Utah Jazz set a new record by completing the course in 25.5 seconds. The skills challenge has been in place since 2003 when New Jersey Nets guard Jason Kidd was the first time winner. For all past winners click here.
Williams will not compete, in this sort of "point guard only" competition, so a new winner will be crowned ...
If you are not familiar with the Skills Challenge - players race against the clock to complete an obstacle course combining dribbling, passing, and shooting abilities.
(The Magic's Jameer Nelson is being replaced by Cleveland guard Mo Williams).
