Miami Heat big man Chris Bosh has been a member of the winning team at the Shooting Stars competition during All-Star Weekend three years running, but he sadly won’t get a chance to go for four in a row. Bosh relayed the news Thursday that the NBA has scrapped the competition, according to Ira Winderman of the South Florida Sun Sentinel.

The Shooting Stars competition began in 2004, and it used to include an active NBA player, WNBA player and a retired NBA player representing a specific city. That changed in 2013, when the format changed to have the active player pick a WNBA player and retired player to be on his team.

Since that change, Team Bosh has won all three years, with Bosh, Swin Cash and Dominique Wilkins teaming up to dominate the competition that involves making shots from different spots on the court as fast as you can.

We’ll see if the league comes up with a different challenge to replace this one.
