The NBA Skills Challenge (officially named The Taco Bell Skills Challenge), is a NBA contest held before the annual All-Star Game as part of the All-Star Weekend. The skills challenge started back in 2003, it’s a competition testing ball-handling, passing and shooting ability. Two players race against each other on identical courses by dribbling between five obstacles while running down the court. Then, the player tests his passing accuracy, followed by dribbling back the full length of the court for a lay up. It’s a definite test of skills with the match ending when the first player hits the three pointer.
