Last season, Kevin participated and won the Three-Point Contest and was a reserve for the Western Conference All-Star team. Ricky Rubio & Derrick Williams played in the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge game. Williams was also a participant of the Sprite Slam Dunk Contest.
This season, Ricky Rubio & Alexey Shved travelled to Houston and will play (on the same team) in the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge.
