NBA All Star weekend - H.O.R.S.E or G.E.I.C.O contestants revealed

Rookie of the Year Kevin Durant, O.J. Mayo and Atlanta Hawks guard Joe Johnson will be competing in the first ever All star weekend event.

The contest will take place outdoors at the NBA's All-Star Block Party on Saturday in Phoenix before TNT televises the All-Star Saturday night festivities.

If a player makes a shot in H-O-R-S-E, the next competitor must make the same shot or receive a letter. A player gets an 'H' for his first miss and is eliminated once he has all five letters of the word.

Players will have 24 seconds to execute their shots, and an NBA referee will rule if they're done properly. Dunking won't be allowed.

Geicko os sponsoring the event so I believe the game will be renamed G.E.I.C.O.
