Four out of the eight players in the NBA Skills Challenge are former Kentucky Wildcats! Demarcus Cousins, John Wall, Anthony Davis, and Devin Booker will join Joel Embiid, Gordon Hayward, Isaiah Thomas, and Kristaps Porzingis. Former Wildcats have won the competition only once when Karl did it last year. Six have been in it at least once including Rajon Rondo, John Wall, Brandon Knight, Demarcus Cousins, Anthony Davis, and the aforementioned Karl-Anthony Towns. I have a good feeling about this year though! The Skills Challenge is the first of three events on Saturday night, February 18th on TNT.
The Skills Challenge is Littered With Cats!
