Rose, Wall voted into Skills Challenge
Former overall No. 1 picks Derrick Rose of Chicago and John Wall of Washington will face off against Stephen Curry of Golden State and Russell Westbrook of Oklahoma City after all four were selected in fan voting to compete against New Orleans point guard Chris Paul in the NBA Skills Challenge on Saturday.
Fans had four weeks to vote online for players eligible through the ”choose your squad” program. The other players on the ballot were Tyreke Evans of Sacramento, Derek Fisher of the Lakers, Tony Parker of San Antonio and Baron Davis of the Clippers.
Paul has twice competed in the All-Star weekend event, sponsored by Taco Bell, and serves as spokesman for the program. Steve Nash of Phoenix won the Skills Challenge last season.
The NBA All-Star Game is this Sunday in Los Angeles.
