In an effort to keep fans entertained in these days of COVID-19, the NBA has organized a series of events to get players back on the TV screen while also maintaining good social distancing practices. There has already been an NBA 2K20 tournament involving players that has drawn hundreds of thousands of viewers, and the ideas continue to flow.
Now, the league is working on a "HORSE" competition in which NBA players will attempt shots remotely from their respective gyms that opponents have to try and match. Until recently, it was unclear who would be partaking in the event, but reporting now suggests that Oklahoma City Thunder guard Chris Paul is among those who will be competing. He's to be joined by Trae Young of the Hawks and Chicago's Zach LaVine, per Adrian Wojnarowksi.
CP3 will be among an assuredly diverse group of participants, and it is a cool addition to have both recent alumni from both the NBA and WNBA take part in an event that is sure to have a ton of eyes on it. It's a nice way to keep the competitive juices flowing for athletes who haven't been able to compete for weeks now, and you can be sure that whoever participates will bring the heat.
Yep, Trae's ready.
You can be sure that Paul will want to show the young guns like Young that he's 100% still got it. Knowing him, this could be the most entertaining and intense HORSE competition there ever was.
