6 Bold Predictions for Tonight’s Skills Competition

February 25th, 2012 by Kelly Scaletta Leave a reply »
Tonight, six of the best point guards in the game will be facing off in the 2012 Taco Bell Skills Challenge.

Of all the contests that are featured on Saturday night, this one might not get the most attention, but it does get the most stars.

In fact, you can make a solid argument that if you were to put all the players in all the contests together, six of the seven biggest stars who will be competing in the various challenges on Saturday night will be in this one contest.

The Skills Challenge is a timed contest. Contestants dribble through three obstacles, then they are required to pass a chest pass into a net, a bounce pass into a net, make a 20-foot jump shot, complete another long pass into a net, move between two more obstacles and complete a layup. 

Whoever does it in the fastest time is the winner of the contest.

Following are this year's contestants and the order I'm projecting them to finish, along with their finishing times.
