The wait is over: NBA announces Shooting Stars lineup
Here are the lineups for the NBA’s “Shooting Stars” competition, which involves a player from an NBA team, a WNBA team, and a retired NBA player from the same city shooting from various spots in the floor and competing against other cities. It takes place on All-Star Saturday. Here are the lineups:
Orlando: Jameer Nelson, Marie Ferdinand-Harris, Dennis Scott
Atlanta: Joe Johnson, Lindsay Harding, Steve Smith
New York: Landry “not Jeremy Lin” Fields, Cappie Pondexter, Allan Houston
Texas, which is being counted as one city this year for some reason: Chandler Parsons (who is from the Orlando area but is bad at shooting a basketball), Sophia Young, Kenny Smith
NBA All-Star Saturday takes place one week from tomorrow.
