On Saturday it was reported that ESPN and the NBA are working on a televised H-O-R-S-E competition that would include high-profile NBA players.

According to Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN, “Discussions have been ongoing among the NBA, NBPA and ESPN about a competition among several players in isolation — presumably using home gyms — that would include them competing shot for shot in the traditional playground game, sources said.”

Curtis Burch got us thinking… If all former Kentucky players were eligible for a game of H-O-R-S-E? Who are you picking to win it all? Let us know in the comments section!

Anthony Davis?

Devin Booker?

Keldon Johnson?

Rex Chapman?

      I am biased being from Madisonville. So my second choice would be Travis Ford. That dude can shoot.

    A combination of shooting skills and athleticism is needed so I will go with Monk.

    Yep, I’ll take Jamal Murray all day. You watch him in warm-ups, he makes incredible shots from so many differnt spots and angles. He really has fun playing the game and in HORSE, you gotta be able to be creative— most great players can hit the basic shots. It’s the creative shots that win!!
