Default H-O-R-S-E being added to All-Star Weekend

Just a shame it isn't NBAer's playing in it. They're using D-Leaguer's instead.

Either way, it should make for a interesting event.

According to insider Henry Abbot, it won't be NBA players but D-leaguers who play the game. Which is not to say it won't be good. Trick shots would seem to be for the youngsters, not something the veterans of the NBA spend a lot of time working on. Not most of them anyway.

I'd nominate Hump based on his in-game use of the H-O-R-S-E technique if they allowed NBAers, but you actually have to make the shots.

God, I haven't played HORSE in ages.

Personally, I'd love to see like a 1 on 1 tourney or a 3 on 3 tourney or something like that during the weekend.

Makes 0 sense, especially if its in the middle of the saturday night festivities. Half the audience will turn off their tv, and the people in the crowd will be like WTF? If you're gonna bring HORSE in at least make sure you have good players from the NBA participating. It's a good idea if the NBA guys are doing it, but NBDL? Wow Stern's a moron.
