Stephen Curry had a group of impressive big names to beat, and he rose to the occassion.
Derrick Rose of the Chicago Bulls, John Wall of the Washington Wizards and Russell Westbrook of the Oklahoma City Thunder, all fell short to the Golden State Warriors' guard.
The son of sharpshooter Dell Curry, it was a little surprising that the second-year pro didn't compete in the Three-Point Shootout, but he probably did the right thing, as he took home the Skills Competition trophy, by beating Westbrook in the finals.
Curry was seeking vindication, as well, for his earlier performance.
That dunk was for all of the guys who make fun of my dunking ability, Curry said. I tried to dunk again on the second run, but I had to let that one go a little early, and then Russell (Westbrook) came behind me and showed me up with a thunderous tomahawk.
