H-O-R-S-E contestants announced

HORSE Contest to be played outdoors as part of TNT All-Star Show

The contestants for H-O-R-S-E have been announced. The game has been implemented for the first time into All-Star Weekend after notable writers such as Bill Simmons rallied for it. No Nuggets were added ... rumor has it the contest will be G-E-I-C-O after the sponsor of the event.

Competitors: Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant, Memphis Grizzlies guard O.J. Mayo, and Atlanta Hawks guard Joe Johnson will participate.

Notable rules: No Dunking and a 24-Second Shot clock will be in place for each attempt.

I don't exactly know how the players were selected, but I would have liked to have seen players nominate other players. This way we could have the best trick shot guys in the game in the contest. Either way ... this is a fun new wrinkle to All-Star Weekend!
