ESPN’s Senior NBA Insider, Adrian Wojnarowski, broke the news that the NBA, NBPA and ESPN are working on a collaboration for a televised competition of the game of H-O-R-S-E.
Yesterday, April 8, Wojnarowski confirmed that the plans for the televised competition are being solidified. Participants include Chris Paul, Trae Young and Zach LaVine, unnamed WNBA players and recent NBA retirees.
This is the second major announcement of a televised program the NBA announced since it cancelled its season. The NBA cancelled its season, as a response to the COVID-19 pandemic on March 12.
Although the NBA has shut down their rules for isolation, that all players must abide by, permit players that reside in the same region or city to participate in in-person NBA related activities.
It is clear that the NBA is trying to still deliver to their fans, even after their shutdown. But are their attempts leaving some NBA fans underwhelmed?
Take a look at these reactions on Twitter:
A date for the H-O-R-S-E competition has not yet been released.
