The NBA and ESPN is working toward televising H-O-R-S-E competitions using high-profile NBA players in isolation, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

So players would compete in home gyms, seemingly over video stream, in games of H-O-R-S-E. The NBA and NBA 2K just launched the Players Tournament on Friday night, which was a success. This would be the second venture between the NBA and ESPN in an attempt to get some sort of basketball activities going during the coronavirus pandemic. This seems like another great way to rally the community together while also raising some awareness and relief of COVID-19.
