Congratulations, Derrick, On Going To All-Star Weekend

Timberwolves rookie forward Derrick Williams has become a must-see member of the Timberwolves squad this season thanks to his big-play ability. He has spent much of the first half of his rookie season providing fans with entertaining drives to the basket and high-flying alley-oop dunks, and as a result Williams was selected to the 2012 BBVA Rising Stars Challenge over All-Star Weekend in Orlando. Williams will play among the top first- and second-year players in the league at the event, which takes place at 8 p.m. CT on Friday, Feb. 24 on TNT.
