Jeremy Lin to Represent the Houston Rockets at 2013 NBA Skills Challenge


Jeremy Lin will be representing the Houston Rockets at the 2013 Taco Bell Skills Challenge, on Saturday February 16 during NBA All-Star Weekend.  The Taco Bell Skills Challenge is a timed course where contestants have to dribble, pass, and shoot to get past different obstacles.  There are six contestants:

  • Tony Parker, San Antonio Spurs (defending champion)
  • Damian Lillard, Portland Trailblazers
  • Jeremy Lin, Houston Rockets
  • Jrue Holiday, Philadelphia 76ers
  • Brandon Knight, Detroit Pistons
  • Jeff Teague, Atlanta Hawks

A local teen will be paired with each player, and the contest will generate $55,000 in education scholarships awarded through the Taco Bell Foundation for Teens.
