Last year, for the first time in decades, All-Star Weekend featured H.O.R.S.E., and Kevin Durant defeated O.J. Mayo and Joe Johnson.
This year, word is the competitors will be Rajon Rondo, Omri Casspi and Kevin Durant.
A team executive is worried that the League does not properly understand the appeal of H.O.R.S.E., and expressed the following in a gmail chat:
The league selects the absolute worst H.O.R.S.E. competitors.
Here's how you make H.O.R.S.E. good:
You gotta have the guy who hits crazy impossible shots. Steve Nash would have been perfect.
You gotta have guys with OVERSIZED trash talking personalities. A guy like Eddie House or Rasheed Wallace or even Brandon Jennings. Just an all-round talker.
Nash, Nate Robinson, Rasheed, and Baron Davis. Now that's a HORSE competition worth watching.
Omri Casspi should be interesting. He looks like he has some off-the-wall stuff.
Not Kevin Durant's boring a--! And definitely not Rondo! Knock him out making five consecutive free throws!!
