Rose May Skip Skills Challenge

16

Since it debuted in 2003, the skills challenge during NBA All-Star weekend has been a showcase for the league's best guards. Past participants include Dwyane Wade, Jason Kidd, Chris Paul and LeBron James. The league has extended an invitation to this year's event to Bulls point guard Derrick Rose, but the rookie hasn't decided if he'll accept. ''I still have to think about it,'' Rose said Thursday. ''It'll depend on how busy I am [and] the way I feel. If I don't feel like being in it, I guess I don't have to play in it.'' Rose is a shoo-in for the rookie game on Friday, Feb. 13. Participating in the skills challenge would keep him in Phoenix for an extra day and give him one fewer day of rest. ''It is an honor [to be invited],'' Rose said, ''but I have to see how I feel.''
