‘Nique, Team Bosh Repeat As Shooting Stars Champs
Team Bosh — featuring Chris Bosh, Swin Cash, and Hawks legend Dominique Wilkins — won their second consecutive Sears Shooting Stars contest with a final round time of 31.4 seconds to beat Team Durant — Kevin Durant, Karl Malone, and Skylar Diggins. In the first round they defeated Team Hardaway — Tim Hardaway, Jr., Tim Hardaway, Sr., and Elena Delle Donne.
Bosh hit the half-court shot on his first attempt of both rounds, giving Team Bosh the only 2 rounds under 40 seconds. Last year ‘Nique hit both half court shots for his team.
‘Nique took some time to shake off the rust, going 2-of-5 on the short shot attempt over the two rounds. Maybe they should have just let him dunk it?
Only time will tell if the trio will be back to attempt a three-peat.
