The NBA is quickly losing millions in revenue due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. To keep some money rolling in, the NBA has decided to hold two separate competitions for their fans. The league is planning to hold a H.O.R.S.E competition and an NBA 2k20 tournament with high profile players. Both competitions are to be held on ESPN from the homes of the respective players.
The H.O.R.S.E competition has no confirmed names yet, but some rumored names are, Zion Williamson, Dwyane Wade, Russell Westbrook, Donovan Mitchell, and Chris Paul. The NBA 2K tournament is already set and will consist of a bracket of 16 players. NBA 2K is a huge game worldwide and this competition is going to bring in a number of viewers that will help the NBA with its revenue.
This is a nice gesture the league is making to its fans as the NBA season was closed midway through and fans everywhere were deprived of what could have been one of the greatest seasons of all time.
