NBA Style - 10 Players You Don't Want to Play Horse Against
The NBA has too many world class basketball players to tell specifically who's better than who. But in games, we have seen some players consistently hit shots that other players rarely make, or even attempt.
The following list presents 10 players (in no order) that you don't want to play horse against, because you know they will pull out some trick shots or two that you know you probably won't make in ten attempts. (No dunks allowed.)
As the reigning champion of HORSE in the NBA, we know how good he is.
He survived and won the game against two top-notch NBA players with four letters on his shoulders. Now THAT is some skill right there.
He's got all the tricks up his sleeve 'cause he can shoot from anywhere when he's hot. Oh, and by the way, he gets hot rather quickly.
Killer Shot: Three-pointer from sideline sitting down.
Joe Johnson can play HORSE man. We all saw how close he was to winning the competition in the last All-Star Weekend.
Even just playing around, he pulls out some of the trickiest shots we saw. To boast, he made a three- pointer sitting down on the sideline. You think you can beat that?
Killer shot: Three-pointer from distance and from different heights.
Kobe Bryant is so good at trick shots that he uses them during playoff games!
Remember his off-the-backboard pass to himself against one of the best defenders in Shane Battier and tallest center in Yao Ming?
Yea, he's that good.
Imagine without defenders, he'll probably pull out some trick that you and I don't even dare to imagine.
Killer Shot: Left-handed half-court shot (search it up!)
When people talk about post moves, it's usually jump hooks, fade-aways, drop steps, and rolls. But when Antawn Jamison plays post, he goes for underhand finger rolls, behind the back shots, over the top.... I see it as an array of HORSE shots.
Killer Shot: Underhand finger rolls from just about anywhere.
Chris Paul is small and athletic, but you will be amazed at his strength too! This guy pulls out all his tricks when he's on the fast break.
Fake step, fake pass, fake this, fake that. Imagine if he does all of this in a HORSE competition! Game over for you before you even knew it started!
Killer Shot: Half-court shot (he's the world record holder).
Vince Carter doesn't need his dunks to win him a game of HORSE. This guy is just as good on lay-ups and finger rolls.
Think few years back, when he turned a 360 around the defender to avoid a charge and finish on a beautiful lay-up with the English on the glass. This guy can win HORSE easily.
Killer shot: 360 degree spin and then up and under.
Maybe he is a selfish player, but you can't deny he has talent and he has tricks.
Allen Iverson is perhaps the king of trick shots in games.
You can find shots from hooks to shots from his ankles all from this one little guy. Again, imagine what he can do without defense!
Killer shot: Finger rolls off dribble spin moves.
Baron Davis is one of the most athletic point guards in the league.
Back in the Hornets and Warriors days, he had the moves to get you out of your seats. Finishing plays around and above people, you can be safe to assume that he's going to use his athleticism to his advantage in a game of HORSE.
Killer shot: One handed half-court fling.
Even though LeBron was beaten by a NCAA Division III player (Youtube it if you haven't), it certainly does not mean he's not a great player.
We have all seen how many fluky-looking shots LeBron makes throughout the season, from finger rolls to no-look shots. If he's playing HORSE for real, you'll probably be out before he even gets a letter!
Well, unless you're David Kalb.
Killer Shot: Half-court finger roll.
This guy is crazy! Remember the no-look shots and the ridiculous and-one's? Yea, it's D-Wade.
Master at finishing plays, he has the knack of knowing what to do with the ball at every situation.
Even if the ball seems like it's not going to go into the hoop, he'll make sure it does.
Killer shot: No-look reverse lay-ups.
