Dupree, along with current Bulls guard Ben Gordon and ex-Bulls star Scottie Pippen, participated in the Shooting Stars competition at the 2007 All-Star Game Weekend in Las Vegas. The competition has teams from select cities to compete with one current NBA player, a former NBA player, and an WNBA player. This is the first year for "Team Chicago" because the WNBA representative, the Chicago Sky will be in its second season. Dupree participated in the Shooting Stars competition for her second straight year at the 2008 All-Star Game Weekend in New Orleans, Louisiana. This time Team Chicago was made up of Dupree, current Bulls Guard Chris Duhon and ex-bulls guard BJ Armstrong.
Team Chicago (48.8) and Team Detroit (1:06) advanced to final round. Due to Ben Gordon shooting out of order before Candice Dupree, Detroit won by default. In the 2008 Shooting Stars Competition Team Chicago had the fastest time in round 1 and faced Team San Antonio in the finals. Team San Antonio won.
