As reported on Bullets Forever, the NBA and the Washington Wizards announced that point guard John Wall will compete at all-star weekend in the skills challenge event. Wall, who participated in the event last year placing fourth, hopes to improve upon his performance from a year ago. He knows what the most difficult part of this competition is.
"I got the same routine. All it is, is you gotta get the basketballs through the little [nets] when you make the passes. That's the toughest part, making the passes. Everything else is pretty easy,"
Also participating in the event will be defending champion Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors, Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder, Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers, Tony Parker of the San Antonio Spurs and Deron Williams of the New Jersey Nets.
Wall will also be participating on Team Barkley in the Rising Stars Challenge.
