The Taco Bell Skills Challenge is a National Basketball Association (NBA) contest held on the Saturday before the annual All-Star Game as part of the All-Star Weekend. First held in 2003, it is a competition to test passing, ball-handling and shooting ability. In the current version of the contest, a participant first shoots a layup. After dribbling between three obstacles, the player must throw a pass into a first net that does not touch the ground. Then, the player shoots a jump shot from 20 feet from the basket. Next, the player must dribble between two more obstacles before passing off to his teammate who repeats the process. When all of these tasks are completed successfully, the timer is stopped. The team with the fastest time from the East faces the team with the fastest time from the West in the final round.
