NBA All-Star Weekend 2012: Stephen Curry To Defend Skills Challenge Title Against Five Others

Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry will defend his Skills Challenge title at NBA All-Star Weekend 2012, the league announced. Curry will square off against five other players in the event, which will take place on Saturday night.

Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder, John Wall of the Washington Wizards, Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Tony Parker of the San Antonio Spurs and Deron Williams of the New Jersey Nets will battle with Curry for the crown. Westbrook was the runner-up in last year's event while Wall finished fourth out of five contestants. Irving, Parker and Williams did not compete in last year's competition.

The Skills Challenge features an obstacle course that players must navigate. Players must dribble between cones, throw bounce and chest passes into a net, shoot a layup and hit a long jump shot. The two fastest times advance to the finals, and the fastest time between those two is crowned champion.
