(670 The Score) Bulls guard Zach LaVine will get his juices flowing in a competitive setting against other NBA stars soon -- remotely, of course.
LaVine is one of the players set to compete in a HORSE competition that the NBA and ESPN are organizing, Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN reported Wednesday. It's unclear when the event will be held, but the goal is to provide some televised entertainment as the NBA season remains suspended amid the coronavirus pandemic. Joining LaVine will be Hawks sharp-shooter Trae Young and Thunder point guard Chris Paul. Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN adds that the league is also pursuing WNBA players and recent NBA alums (former Celtic Paul Pierce has expressed interest) for the event.
Players will compete in isolation, likely in their home gyms or on hoops outside their houses. The 25-year-old LaVine was averaging a career-high 25.5 points per game when the season was halted.
