There is usually very little defense in basketball All-Star games, so there are plenty of chances to show off. However, if you decide to showboat, you better succeed.

In the fourth quarter of the 2014 WNBA All-Star Game at U.S. Airways Center in Phoenix, Arizona, the East tried to get fancy on a three-on-one fast break, but Atlanta Dream teammates Shoni Schimmel and Angel McCoughtry couldn't convert the off-the-backboard attempt.

The East ultimately prevailed 125-124 in overtime, and rookie point guard Shoni Schimmel, who threw the pass, won MVP honors after posting a game-high 29 points and eight assists.
