The attempt to entertain through sports is continuing with NBA stars agreeing to participate in a H-O-R-S-E competition. The game will feature Chris Paul of the Oklahoma City Thunder, Trae Young of the Atlanta Hawks and Zach LaVine of the Chicago Bulls.
Additional participants will be from the WNBA, including Tamika Catchings, and NBA alumni. The games will be in a single-elimination format, ESPN reports.
The games would be filmed at home locations or indoor or outdoor courts. The first games can be seen this Sunday from 7-9 p.m. ET on ESPN and the championships going down April 16.
And now, we go to Trae Young for some rules, specifically for high-flying Lavine.
First-round matchups are Young vs. Chauncey Billups, Catchings vs. Mike Conley, LaVine vs. Paul Pierce, and Paul vs. Allie Quigley of the Chicago Sky.
State Farm will donate more than $200,000 on behalf of the participants to charities focused on coronavirus response efforts. This donation builds on the more than $74 million that has been contributed by the NBA Family to date to support coronavirus relief efforts through its NBA Together campaign.
