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 Hawks’ Trae Young and Chicago Bulls’ Zach LaVine.
Sources: The NBA and ESPN plan to televise a HORSE competition is nearing completion and among those expected to participate include Chris Paul, Trae Young and Zach LaVine. Competition will also include a couple of WNBA players and recent NBA alumni.— Adrian Wojnarowski (@wojespn) April 8, 2020
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.
