NBA Shooting Stars Competition 2012 Preview And Participants

One of the only NBA All-Star Saturday Night events that revolves around team play is back as the 2012 Haier Shooting Stars Competition will lead off tonight's festivities at Amway Center in Orlando, Florida.

While there isn't a "Team Boston" competing in tonight's event (thought that would be sweet), there will be teams that will represent some of the best basketball cities the country has to offer. The teams with participants are as follows:

There is revenge on the mind of Team Texas, as they were defeated by mere seconds by Team Atlanta in last year's competition.

Game information and TV Schedule as follows:
