I'm still bitter about TNT changing the name of H-O-R-S-E to G-E-I-C-O, but at least they and the NBA put together a pretty good field to participate in the contest. Instead of four people playing the game, there will be three, and of here they are....
Kevin Durant (Oklahoma City Thunder)
OJ Mayo (Memphis Grizzlies)
Joe Johnson (Atlanta Hawks)
Each player will have 24 seconds to complete their turn, and there will be no dunking allowed (good thing for Johnson). I'm also hoping that they are allowed to use the set that TNT is broadcasting from, and Kenny Smith as props. Oh and if someone doesn't try a bounce shot....I'll be very disappointed.
I'm personally thinking that Joe Johnson is the favorite because of his outside shot, but with the way Durant has been playing this year, he could challenge him. Should be fun.
