In the past, the Skills Challenge event that takes place on All-Star Saturday night had players going through the course one at a time, with those who completed it the fastest advancing to the later rounds.

This year, the format has changed slightly -- not only will we have two players running the course at the same time, but there’s a bracket system in place, as well as a three-point shot at the end of the course that should make things extremely interesting.

The list of participants is as follows:
Participant, Team Pos. Ht. Wt.

Trey Burke, Utah Jazz G 6-1 185

Jimmy Butler, Chicago Bulls G/F 6-7 220

Michael Carter-Williams, Philadelphia 76ers G 6-6 190

Brandon Knight, Milwaukee Bucks G 6-3 189

Kyle Lowry, Toronto Raptors G 6-0 205

Jeff Teague, Atlanta Hawks G 6-2 181

Isaiah Thomas, Phoenix Suns G 5-9 185

John Wall, Washington Wizards G 6-4 195

And here’s the bracket of the how the matchups will shake out:
