    Not a bad idea if you ask me.

    Anyone v. Shaq. Just have the other player shoot free throws. Shaq would lose in the matter of 5 minutes.

    That idea would actually be totally badass.

    Bill Simmons has been clamoring for this idea for years.

    My thoughts exactly. About time Stern listens to the fans.

    Re: All Star Weekend Game of Horse

    I think it would be cool to have a fan challenge.......maybe put a player against a fan for the first round, and see if there are any upsets. I would take down Lebron with my famous 360 freethrow!

    I think this actually looks pretty cool.

    H-O-R-S-E could revitalize NBA All-Star weekend | FanNation



    "That's right. Arguably the most interesting and exciting event of the night isn't officially on the line-up. The game will take place on a 45x50 foot court alongside the network's new NBA on TNT Rig outside the arena. The best part about this, though, is that the rig can rise up to 14 feet off the ground and rotate. Think about the shots that can be created off this thing -- shots from the top of the rig, shots from the top of the truck holding the rig, shots from the top of the makeshift bleachers next to the court. We haven't seen this kind of potential creativity since [ame="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_oACRt-Qp-s"]Jordan and Bird battled it[/ame] out for a Big Mac."

    Would love to see Bird and Jordon do this.

    Re: All Star Weekend Game of Horse

    Okay - so my post yesterday was about how I think this is going to actually be pretty awesome.

    So of course today, someone has to come along and ruin it.

    Instead of playing H-O-R-S-E, they will be playing G-E-I-C-O.

    Re: All Star Weekend Game of Horse

    Announced today that Joe Johnson, Kevin Durant, and O.J. Mayo will be the HORSE (or GEICO) contestants.

    I don't know about the rest of you, but I am looking forward to this.
