NEW YORK | Stephen Curry of Golden State, Derrick Rose of Chicago, John Wall of Washington and Russell Westbrook of Oklahoma City were selected in fan voting to compete against New Orleans point guard Chris Paul in the NBA Skills Challenge on Saturday.

Fans had four weeks to vote online for players eligible through the “choose your squad” program. The other players on the ballot were Tyreke Evans of Sacramento, Derek Fisher of the Lakers, Tony Parker of San Antonio and Baron Davis of the Clippers.

Paul has twice competed in the All-Star weekend event, sponsored by Taco Bell, and serves as spokesman for the program. Steve Nash of Phoenix won the Skills Challenge last season.

The NBA All-Star game is Sunday in Los Angeles.
