The NBA and ESPN are working on televising a H-O-R-S-E competition involving several high-profile players, sources say. Players would shoot in isolation – presumably in home gyms – and match shots against competitors. Details are still being finalized.

The league has had to get creative with actual games on hold due to the pandemic. One of their other efforts is taking place this weekend.
This one will require a lot of moving parts, and the players involved will have to have access to a basketball court, which not everyone has right now. People will probably still tune in, especially if the players involved are big names.
