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 representing their teams' city competing together in a shooting competition. The competition itself is time based, involving shooting from six locations of increasing difficulty and making all six shots in sequential order. Shot one is a 10-ft bank shot from the right angle, shot two is a 15-ft bank shot from the left angle, shot three is a straight on NBA three pointer, shot four is an 18-footer from the right baseline, shot five is an NBA three pointer from the left side and shot six 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, the San Antonio Team set the course record with 25.1 seconds.
