PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Jrue Holiday will probably just tell you he’s happy just to be part of the NBA All-Star game. The youngest All-Star in Sixers history will participate in both the game, and the NBA Skills Challenge this weekend in Houston.
Holiday is a long shot to win the All-Star game MVP, with odds of 25-1, according to Bovada. The favorite to win the award is Kevin Durant at 13-2, followed by Lebron James at 7-1. The longest shots are Tyson Chandler and Joakim Noah at 50-1, and Tim Duncan at 60-1.
While Holiday might not be the favorite to be the MVP of the game, he is the favorite for something, the NBA Skills Challenge. The challenge, which tests a player’s ability to handle the ball and pass, takes place the night before the game. Holiday is the favorite of the six contestants at 3-1, followed by Tony Parker at 7-2, Damian Lillard at 7-2, Jeremy Lin at 4-1, Brandon Knight at 11-2 and Jeff Teague at 11-2.
Here are the rest of the odds for the game:
