Of course, like most people, I have my favorite Taco Bell NBA All-Star Skills Challenge memories. With this year’s event back in Los Angeles, for example, it will be hard not to think of Baron Davis triumphantly out-dribbling Earl Boykins at the 2004 competition at Staples Center. I think we all remember where we were on February 16, 2008, too, when Deron Williams shocked the New Orleans crowd by narrowly breaking Steve Nash’s course record of 25.8 seconds. Deron’s mad dash through those final suffocating cones—punctuated by a thunderous lay-up—got him in the winner’s circle at 25.5 seconds. But more importantly, it solidified his legend as one of the greatest pro athletes of all-time.
Christ dude.... killing me.
