ESPN is putting together a HORSE competition with pro ballers. This is sports now

According to an official statement from the league, the competition is set to begin airing April 12 on ESPN, and will be headlined by popular players including Chris Paul, Trae Young, and Zach LaVine. The players are split into two groups, with the victor of each group advancing to the finals.

HORSE is a game in which players have to make the identical shot of the person shooting before them.

If you've never played H-O-R-S-E, this is how it'll work: The players will take turns trying to match made shots (dunking is outlawed). Once a player receives all letters in H-O-R-S-E, he/she is eliminated. There will be a coin toss to determine who shoots first.

LaVine competed in the National Basketball Association 2K20 Players Tournament, losing in the first round last week.

Kompany: Van Dijk is next level
Van Dijk believes that these last two months could be a sneak preview of the sensation players feel after retirement, a milestone he is hoping not to face for some time yet.

Having Paul, Young and LaVine committed to the competition will likely help draw in a large audience as they are among the flashiest players in the league with the ball in their hands so they could come up with some creative shots.

ESPN and other networks are looking for content to air while games are not being played.

Below is the complete schedule. All first-round matchups will be Sunday from 7 to 9 p.m. ET on ESPN, with the semifinals and championship happening April 16 from 9 to 11 p.m. ET on ESPN.

Victor of Billups-Young vs. victor of Catchings vs. Conley Jr.
