Borrowing a format used earlier this year by the National Basketball Association, teams will be named for captains rather than conferences with the inaugural matchup using this method being between Team Delle Donne, for Washington Mystics forward Elena Delle Donne, and Team Parker for Candace Parker of the Los Angeles Sparks. The teams they choose will be announced at the start of Thursday's 8 p.m. ET game on ESPN2, when Delle Donne's Mystics face Dallas.

Team Delle Donne will be coached by Seattle's Dan Hughes and Team Parker by Phoenix's Sandy Brondello. Every team had at least one player on the list except last-place Indiana. She hit the mark in three fewer games than both Seimone Augustus and Diana Taurasi.
