New York wins Shooting Stars

Former Knicks guard Allan Houston led Team New Star festivities.

Houston, along with current Knick Landry Fields and Cappie Pondexter of the WNBA's New York Liberty, needed just 37.7 seconds to finish the final round and edge Team Texas.

The stars competition is made up of NBA, WNBA and former NBA stars attempting to make baskets from six different marked spots on the court.

Former Houston Rockets guard and present TNT analyst Kenny Smith, current Rocket Chandler Parsons and Sophia Young of the San Antonio Silver Stars comprised Team Texas, which finished with a time of 47.6 seconds in the final round.

Team Atlanta, made up of NBA TV analyst and former NBAer Steve Smith, Hawks guard Jerry Stackhouse and Lindsey Harding of the reigning WNBA Eastern Conference champion Atlanta Dream was eliminated in the first round.

Team Orlando, comprised of Magic icon Dennis Scott, current Magic point guard Jameer Nelson and three-time WNBA All-Star Marie Ferdinand-Harris, also suffered a first-round exit.
