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.

    They should have done a Minnesota team with Ricky Rubio, Maya Moore and Steph Marbury

      Only if Starbury eats Vaseline and sobs like a crazy homeless person before shooting…

    How many time we gotta watch Steve Smith and Kenny Smith? Does no one else want to do this?

    The NBA is still doing that stupid Shooting Stars thing? Get the **** out. Still?? And why isn’t Magic in it again? And why is Texas all lumped together? There are three ****ing teams in Texas. They can’t pick one?

    Funny everyone is dissing this competition, when the dunk contest has been HORRIBLE. I actually enjoy this shooting stars competition more than the 3 point contest.

    The selection of players this year is very lackluster though. Both on the NBA and WNBA level.
