Skeets is reporting that the NBA has finally responded to what several columnists and bloggers have been calling for over the past couple of years. H-O-R-S-E is coming to All-Star weekend. This will be, hands down, the best of the All-Star Saturday showcases. They haven't announced who is participating, so chime in with your suggestions in the comment section. Maybe somebody up there reads. You can throw out a name or even hand-select your own trio.
Personally I think it's a testament to Rudy's game that I can envision him doing well in the dunk contest, three-point shootout, and H-O-R-S-E. I actually think the latter might be his strength while the dunk contest is probably his weakest. Naturally that's the one they have him in.
Who should be fighting for league trick-shooting rights? (No dunking allowed.)
P.S. You can see and discuss the three-point shooting contestants here thanks to Charles Barkley McLovin.
