Probably at least 10 turnovers in the 30 seconds they give you. But he'll still end up winning.

Default Is the Skills Challenge the Most Enticing Event this Weekend?

Curry
Irving
T. Parker
Wall
Westbrook
D. Williams

...all in skills contest. Unlike the All-Star game, I think you have some competitors on this list who will take the event seriously. I can imagine Westbrook and Wall just bringing an attitude to this.

This might be the only must see of the weekend.

I hope you're right in your belief that some of those players may take the event seriously. In the past, the Skills Challenge has always been my least enticing event, simply because it seems to be run permanently at half speed. I see all these stars entered in this competition and I get excited. Then every year I see them mosey around cones and shoot set shots. I find it similar to if Vince Carter were to have come to the dunk contest and just finished off routine two-handers like he was in a lay-up line.

Example: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4_5XR...feature=fvwrel

Not as Good an Example (since Dwyane's mistakes doomed him) but in honor of Blue Chips, I loved this vid: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3GvBaka1PBM

It'll be enjoyable to watch but not the most enticing event.
