NBA All-Star Weekend: John Wall Eliminated After First Round Of Skills Challenge

John Wall's weekend in Orlando came to a sour end as he was eliminated from the All-Star Skills Challenge after the first round after losing a head-to-head tiebreaker with Boston Celtics guard Rajon Rondo.

Wall and Rondo each completed their first turn through the course in 32.8 seconds, which necessitated a second run for each of them to determine who would advance to the final round. Rondo completed his second run in under 30 seconds, while Wall struggled with the jump shooting portion of the course and finished well off Rondo's pace.

San Antonio Spurs guard Tony Parker won the competition, beating out Deron Williams of the New Jersey Nets, Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers, and Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder in addition to Wall and Rondo.

This was Wall's second appearance in the All-Star event.
