  • The National Basketball League (NBA) is celebrating 75 years and is currently in the midst of the conference semifinals.
  • Meta’s social space game Horizon Worlds is featuring a NBA-themed world where players can check out game clips or participate in various basketball contests with friends.
  • The NBA Lane experience will only be available in Horizon Worlds until June 30.

Meta announced today that those already knee-deep in basketball coverage can consume more of it in virtual reality with the NBA Lane experience in Horizon Worlds for a limited time.

The basketball-themed social space celebrates 75 years of the sports league with various games to play and memorabilia to check out in VR on the Oculus Quest 2. Players can challenge each other to score the most points with a moving hoop in a free throw shootout, or impress virtual judges in the low-gravity dunk contest.
