If Tatum repeats, he will be only the third player ever (Dwyane Wade and Damian Lillard) and first since Damian Lillard in 2014 to defend their Taco Bell Skills Challenge title.
He will join the likes of Wade (2006, 07), Steve Nash (2005, 2010), and Lillard (2013, 14) to win two Skills Challenge Contests.
