Basketball
Basketball
Basketball
is a limited-contact sport played on a rectangular court. While most often played as a team sport with five players on each side, three-on-three, two-on-two, and one-on-one competitions are also common. The objective is to shoot a basketball (approximately 9.4 inches (24 cm) in diameter) through a hoop 18 inches (46 cm) in diameter and 10 feet (3.048 m) high that is mounted to a backboard at each end of the court. The game was invented in 1891 by Dr. James Naismith. A team can score a field goal by shooting the ball through the basket being defended by the opposition team during regular play. A field goal scores three points for the shooting team if the player shoots from behind the three-point line, and two points if shot from in front of the line. A team can also score via free throws, which are worth one point, after the other team is assessed with certain fouls

Shooting Stars Competition
The Shooting Stars competition was a National Basketball Association (NBA) contest during All-Star Weekend that was held on the Saturday before the All-Star Game. It involved 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 chose both a WNBA player and the retired player to compete on his team. The competition itself was time based, involving shooting from four locations of increasing difficulty and making all four shots in sequential order. The first shot was a 10-ft bank shot from the right angle, the second was straight-on jump shot from the top of the key, the third was an NBA three-point shot from the left angle and the fourth is a half-court shot. There was a two-minute time limit for each attempt and the top two times advanced to a head-to-head final round. The event was held each All-Star Weekend from 2003–04
