To me, the Playstation Skills Challenge at the NBA All-Star Weekend is a nice addition but honestly I wouldn’t complain too much if it wasn’t there.

This year’s contestants are: Devin Harris (New Jersey Nets), Derrick Rose (Chicago Bulls), Tony Parker (San Antonio Spurs) and Mo Williams (Cleveland Cavaliers).  Williams replaced the injured Jameer Nelson (Orlando Magic).

I’d love to see Derrick Rose take this one out (because he’s just sick), but I have a feeling that veteran Tony Parker will rise to the occasion this time.
