The H-O-R-S-E Field

The winner apparently gets to take the Geico lizard home: “Grizzlies rookie O.J. Mayo was among three players selected today to participate a H-O-R-S-E competition during the NBA’s All-Star Saturday night. Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant and Atlanta’s Joe Johnson are the other competitors in TNT’s special event … The contest will take place outdoors in Phoenix before TNT televises the All-Star Saturday night festivities.”

    Joe Johnson wins when Durant and OJ simply can’t hit a simple bank shot on the left side.

    Hope someone remembers to re-enact the “off the backboard, in the stands, off the ceiling” routine MJ & Bird perfected in that ad.

    Darksaber, you mean ESPN shoud offer a Big Mac for the winner?

    I’d rather see Sam Cassell, Gary Payton, and Reggie Miller. Lot’s of trash talking, and these guys probobly have all sorts of trick shots over their long careers.

    Yeah this should definately be an “event” for the older statesmen in the L.

    Hopefully the time limit on attempts will be short. As in 10 seconds or less, otherwise things could get Nate Robinson awkward.
