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.
