Report: Thunder’s Chris Paul, other NBA stars to compete in H-O-R-S-E competition

NBA: Oklahoma City Thunder at New York Knicks Noah K. Murray-USA TODAY Sports

Oklahoma City Thunder’s Chris Paul is partaking in the most excellent playground game, ever.

According to ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, Paul will join the Atlanta HawksTrae Young and Chicago BullsZach LaVine.

For those who don’t know what H-O-R-S-E is, it’s a basketball shooting game where players take turns shooting at the hoop from different locations. Each time someone makes a shot, but everyone else misses, they get a letter toward the word ‘HORSE.’ The first one to spell out HORSE loses.

Woj says WNBA players and retired NBA players will join Paul, Young, and LaVine.

Young and LaVine even joked with each other on Twitter.

According to Wojnarowski, the competition will be filmed from home gyms or outdoor courts due to “current NBA isolation protocols” since they can’t be in the same room together during the COVID-19 pandemic.
