David Wesley spent 14 years in the NBA, but he had never faced a challenge quite like this. The Longview native took on Ryan and Coleman in a game of horse. Wesley's been retired since 2007, but he hasn't lost his shooting touch.
Wesley quickly put the 7 Sports team in a hole, hitting his first two shots. Coleman missed, then Ryan did the same. But after taking an 'H' and an 'O', Coleman hit a three pointer from the corner. Wesley missed, giving him an 'H'. Coleman then followed with another shot from nearly half court. Wesley missed again. The game was even 'H-O' to 'H-O'.
Wesley quickly found his shot, hitting his next two. Ryan and Coleman both missed and were left with 'H-O-R-S'. After several misses on both sides, Ryan finally hit a shot. The joy didn't last long as Wesley easily answered with a swish.
Wesley then drained another three pointer from the corner. Coleman had to match the shot, or the game was over. Coleman's shot went in and out. The 7 Sports guys go down 'H-O' to 'H-O-R-S-E.'
When asked where this win ranked in his career, Wesley was blunt.
"It doesn't rank up there," he said. "I enjoyed beating you. I didn't want to lose that game."
