Cousins will return to the contest for a second year

NBA: All Star Game Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Sacramento Kings center DeMarcus Cousins will return to the Taco Bell Skills Challenge during All-Star weekend, the NBA announced. Cousins appeared in the 2016 contest, the first contest that featured a big-man division against a group of guards. Cousins finished second among big men last year, losing to Karl-Anthony Towns, who eventually defeated Isaiah Thomas in the final contest.

Towns will not be defending his crown, but Isaiah Thomas will be back in the contest. Other big men in the contest include Joel Embiid, Kristaps Porzingis, and Anthony Davis. Isaiah will be joined by guards John Wall, Devin Booker, and Gordon Hayward.

I don’t actually care who wins this contest, I just would like to have all the participants mic’ed up.
