The Shooting Stars Competition is a National Basketball Association All-Star Weekend contest held on the Saturday before the All-Star Game. It involves a current NBA player, a WNBA player and a retired NBA player competing together in a shooting competition. From 2004 to 2012, players represented their teams' cities. Starting in 2013, the NBA player chooses both a WNBA player and the retired player to compete on his team. The competition itself is time based, involving shooting from four locations of increasing difficulty and making all four shots in sequential order. The first shot is a 10-ft bank shot from the right angle, the second is straight-on jumper from the top of the key, the third is an NBA three-pointer from the left angle and the fourth is a half-court shot. There is a two-minute time limit for each attempt and the top two times advance to a head-to-head final round. The event has been held each All-Star Weekend since 2003–04. In 2007–08, Team San Antonio became the event's first two-time winner. Detroit followed suit in 2008–09 with their second title. In 2005–06, Team San Antonio set the course record with 25.1 seconds. In 2010-11, Team Atlanta became the first team to win the event with a time over one minute. In 2013-14, Team Bosh became the first back-to-back winner.
