The NBA is bringing H-O-R-S-E back to All-Star weekend! Well, kind of.
According to the official press release,
Steph Curry and John Wall will face off in a shot-for-shot competition and fans will help play a role in determining who is crowned the ‘Ultimate Game Changer,’ by voting on one of the shots the two All-Stars will attempt in the battle. Starting Monday, February 9 fans can vote at Twitter.com/DegreeMen and tune in to NBA TV on February 14 to see which fan shot was selected. To take the crown, Curry and Wall also will have to make a variety of shots which will be unveiled at the start of the competition.
So basically it’s H-O-R-S-E with two of the best point guards in the league and without the worst trophy in NBA All-Star weekend history and Kevin Durant dominating the event by shooting 3-pointers.
Considering John Wall is a NBA dunk contest winner and Stephen Curry makes news when he hangs on the rim, I’m assuming there’s a no-dunk rule – although Wall did dunk in this challenge to Steph video.
I don’t think it would be fair if Wall was allowed to dunk but it’s All-Star weekend where unfair things happen: Dunk wheel anybody?
Anyways, enough of blasting the past. I’m really looking forward to seeing Curry and Wall go at it next month. I don’t know who to bet on but I know John Wall better start working on this hallway shot.
