Team Bosh won't get to defend its Shooting Stars title at All-Star weekend in Toronto, apparently. Miami Heat big man Chris Bosh said Thursday that the event has been scrapped, via the South Florida Sun Sentinel's Ira Winderman.
This is bad news for Toronto Raptors guard Kyle Lowry, who told ESPN's Zach Lowe on a podcast that he'd like to participate in front of his home crowd, perhaps alongside former Raptor Morris Peterson. Oh well.
There is no word yet on what will replace the Shooting Stars competition, which has been a part of All-Star Saturday's festivities since 2004. A team consisting of Bosh, Dominique Wilkins and Swin Cash has won the event for the last three years.
Long live Team Bosh.
