It will be a busy day on NBA TV and two Nets players and four members of the Springfield Armor will get a chance to show their stuff in skills competitions and the D-League All-Star Game.
Media will have another opportunity to get Deron Williams and Dwight Howard to say something, anything, after All-Star Practice which starts at 11 a.m. At 2 p.m., the D-League All-Star Game featuring JamesOn Curry, Jeff Foote and Jerry Smith of the Armor takes place. Another Armor player, L.D. Williams, will attempt to defend his D-League dunking crown this afternoon.
Starting at 8:30, Deron Williams will race through the "obstacle course" in the Skills Challenge. Williams holds the Skills Challenge record at 25.5 seconds.
Then in an emotional tribute for Nets fans, Anthony Morrow will don Drazen Petrovic's jersey and try to achieve a long-time goal: winning the Three-Point Shootout. "I’m making the shot. That’s it," said Morrow when asked what he'll be thinking. "I’m making every shot."
