Before the summer LeBron James and Cub Cadet launched a special Trick Shot Challenge. The winner was rewarded with a chance to compete with King James one-on-one in a game of H-O-R-S-E. For those, who are not familiar with the concept of this game here’s a little explanation… The goal is to not accrue the five letters in the word “horse”. With two players competing, player #1 is allowed to shoot from anywhere on the court and, if he makes the shot, then player #2 must duplicate the same shot from the same position. If player #2 misses, he receives the first “letter” from the word “horse” (in this case – an “H”). However, if player #1 misses his original shot; then player #2 is now free to shoot from anywhere on the court and, hopefully, force player #1 to try and duplicate his made shots. A player is knocked out of the game once he has enough letters to spell out the word “horse.” On Wednesday James was on an outdoor court at Venice Beach to take on David Kalb, who won the “LeBron’s Trick Shot Challenge sponsored by Cub Cadet.”, in a shooting game, mostly of trick shots, although James’ outside shooting touch was way off. At one point, he grinned and said, “That wind.” Kalb’s bag of trick shots including one where he bounced the ball very high in the lane, raced around the goal post, caught the ball as it came down, and tossed it in the basket. James missed his try, and after losing the first game, declared best two-of-three. Each made, among other shots, left-handed free throws, but Kalb went on to win the second game as well.
