Damian Lillard won the 2013 Taco Bell Skills Challenge, which sadly included zero chalupas. But how did he do in the Taco Bell Skills Challenge Judged Like A Dunk Contest Challenge?
Damian Lillard officially won the 2013 Taco Bell Skills Challenge. But could he defeat the other contestants for our favorite variation, the Taco Bell Skills Challenge Judged Like A Dunk Contest Challenge? Let's find out.
Jeff Teague. This was the "Let The Birdman Fly!" of Skills Challenge. He blew a bunch of shots, a couple chest passes AND the closing lay-up. That said, he crossed over the first fake player he faced. Smiled throughout. 7.
Brandon Knight. A relatively efficient run that included pursed lips on every pass attempt. Several near carries on the slalom run, which is a plus. Vicious dunk to end it. 9.
Jrue Holiday. Through no fault of his own, his run prompted UCLA chest-beating from Reggie Miller. 5.
Jeremy Lin. This was the least confident run ever, though it worked alright. His first bounce pass rebounded back to him, so he used that ball and put it in. He totally slothed through the foul line jumpers. 6.
Damian Lillard. Supremely confident, defiant, resolute. Jason Richardson in the early '00s. 9.
Jrue Holiday. Smily but otherwise not notable. Lovely sneakers, though. 7.
Damian Lillard. Smooth, less assured than Round 1. But still dominant. 9.
Runner up: Tony Parker.
