Dominique Wilkins has become an integral part of an emerging dynasty.
Wilkins, the FOX Sports South Hawks analyst, participated in the Sears Shooting Challenege for the second year in a row on Saturday night … and for the second year in a row his team, Team Bosh, took home the trophy.
Led by Heat All-Star forward Chris Bosh and WNBA star Swin Cash, Team Bosh took down three opponents — headed by Kevin Durant, Steph and Dell Curry and Tim Hardaway and Tim Hardaway Jr. — for the crown.
Though Wilkins’ shooting touch was a bit off (he finished the two rounds 2 of 7 from the field, including two misses on his two half-court attempts), Bosh, the team captain was able to save the day and deliver the win by hitting half-court heaves in both rounds.
The second long-distance make gave Wilkins & Co. the win over Durant’s team of Skylar Diggins and Karl Malone.
The elder Curry, Dell, another FOX Sports analyst covering the Charlotte Bobcats, also took on the shooting challenge alongside his son and WNBA star Becky Hammon.
However, there was no Bosh magic for the Curry clan, and the needed half-court shot never fell.
So Wilkins, Bosh and Cash remain the champs until proven otherwise, returning the coveted Shooting Challenge trophy to its designated spot on the mantle.
