Wait, what? DeMar DeRozan has been selected to participate in the All-Star weekend skills challenge. I’m actually shocked at the selection – the guy’s handles and passing ability has improved, but no way it warrants a skills challenge appearance. Kyle Lowry would have made more sense, but the NBA doesn’t seem to like him too much.
He will go up against Damian Lillard, Trey Burke, Reggie Jackson, Goran Dragic, Michael Carter-Williams, Victor Oladipo, and Giannis Antetokounmpo.
“Just trying to expand my game,” DeMar said with a laugh. “I thought it would be fun. You never know, I might mess around and win it”
