The NBA and ESPN are working on televising a H-O-R-S-E competition involving several high-profile players, sources told ESPN.
Discussions have been ongoing among the NBA, NBPA and ESPN about a competition among several players in isolation — presumably using home gyms — that would include them competing shot for shot in the traditional playground game, sources said.
Details — including a schedule and specific player involvement — are still being finalized.
The NBA has been shut down since March 12 because of the coronavirus pandemic, and there’s no expectation that the league can resume play anytime soon. Current NBA isolation protocols governing NBA players make it impossible for players to compete in the same location together.
