The skills competition included dribbling around cones, making a short jump shot or lay up, completing a bounce pass, and then finally shooting a t-shirt out of a gun, a skill that is critical to the success of any NBA player.

The media members would also compete in a dunk contest, which was judged by John Wall and JaVale McGee. The winner of the dunk contest by a wide margin was Big Tigger, the WPGC radio personality and resident DJ at Verizon Center.
