The NBA and ESPN are teaming up to televise a H-O-R-S-E competition featuring its star players.
All of the participates haven’t been announced yet, but Celtics guard Marcus Smart would make a great addition based off his pregame warmup routine of attempting — and usually sinking — backwards 3-pointers.
However, he has another idea for ways in which he could thrive in the competition.
“Let’s play H-O-R-S-E with defense and see how that works out,” Smart on Thursday tweeted.

Before the NBA season was paused, Smart was making a valid case for himself as a candidate for the NBA’s Defensive Player of the Year Award.
However, Smart’s style of defense certainly doesn’t qualify as social distancing.
