They’d likely shoot from their home gyms against each other and compete virtually.

If this happened six months ago, I’d call it an insanely stupid move. It’d call it dumb and unnecessary. I wouldn’t give it one second of attention.

Now, I think it’s a genius idea. People are desperate for any kind of sports action we can get. We’ll literally take anything offered.

Coronavirus has ruined sports, and people are craving any kind of action. The ratings for this would be through the roof!

Millions and millions of people would tune in to watch NBA stars battle it out in H-O-R-S-E. Imagine watching LeBron James shoot against James Harden or any other famous player.
