TNT Adds H-O-R-S-E

Bill Simmons has been talking about this for years… and TNT is trying to make his dream come true.  They’re adding a game of H-O-R-S-E to their show.

TNT today announced the addition of the popular basketball shot-making game H-O-R-S-E to its programming lineup during its four days of NBA All-Star 2009 coverage from February 12-15, in Phoenix, Arizona. The H-O-R-S-E game will air live during TNT’s two-hour Inside the NBA presented by Hyundai (5 – 7 p.m. ET) on Saturday, February 14.

The game will take place on a 45′ X 50’ court alongside the network’s new NBA on TNT Rig at the NBA All-Star Block Party, the NBA’s new outdoor All-Star event.

I’m definitely going to watch that.  I can’t imagine the crazy stuff these guys are going to come up with.

In honor of this announcement here’s the famous Bird/Jordan H-O-R-S-E commercial

  1. Cute commercial, but, lets be honest with ourselves, a game of horse between Bird and Jordan (no dunking) would be more lopsided than Tony Romo’s mattress now that Jessica has gained a few pounds.

  2. Thats a great commercial.

  3. I’m pretty excited about this. It’s about time.

  4. What would really be awesome would be a real 1 on 1 competition. Anyone wanna see Kobe, Lebron, Paul Pierce, CP3, Manu, Wade, McGrady and maybe Granger have an elimination tourney? I sure would. Any predictions on who would win?

  5. I’ll go with my fellow balding brother and pick Manu!!

  6. Hell has frozen over… people are actually excited about a game of horse.

  7. It’s not a game of horse between me and you….

    ….. which could still be entertaining.

  8. I think we could come up with a few solid arguments that a game of horse between you and I would be more entertaining. Sadly, I don’t have time to come up with those arguments before All-Star break.
