The Seahawks wide receiver had outlasted all of his teammates in a foul-shooting contest. His reward was the surprise right to face off against Boston Celtics All-Star guard Isaiah Thomas.
The contest would take place in the Seahawks' meeting room, and from Lockett's perspective, had all the makings of a no-lose situation. If Thomas beats him, who cares, he's an NBA star. But if Lockett pulled off the upset, he's a legend in his own building.
Alas, legend status will have to wait because Thomas never even gave him a chance to compete. Check this out:

This makes me want to play H.O.R.S.E. so bad. Thomas isn't invited, though.
