To fill the void, ESPN is holding a virtual H-O-R-S-E tournament between players from both leagues, past and present.
Big names from the men’s game, like Chris Paul, Trae Young and now-retired 10-time All-Star Paul Pierce have been taking part and, from the WNBA, All-Star Allie Quigley and Hall of Fame inductee Tamika Catchings threw their names into the hat too.
Each competitor plays from their respective home courts and the rules are simple.
H-O-R-S-E is a two-player game where players take turns making shots. If they score, the other player has to match the shot. If the opposing player misses the mirrored shot, they earn a letter. Once a player spells “H-O-R-S-E,” they lose.
Following the first round at the weekend, four players have progressed to the semifinals, which will take place on Thursday, April 16.
Five-time All-Star Chauncey Billups will take on Utah Jazz’s Mike Conley and Zach LaVine, the Chicago Bulls guard and two-time Slam Dunk Contest champion, will face Chicago Sky’s Quigley.
