The annual All-Star Celebrity Game is one of the most entertaining sports events of the year … ok, ok, after Super Bowl and NBA finals. Either way, millions tune in to see which Hollywood stars got the moves and which don’t.

But this year, it might not be the players people will be looking out for, rather the coaches. On Thursday morning, the NBA confirmed that Drake will coach the Canadian team, while comedian Kevin Hart, will reign over the USA.

Drake, who was named a global ambassador for the Toronto raptors back in 2013, will coach alongside Steve Nash and Toronto Blue Jays right fielder José Bautista. The team will also consist of  “Race” actor Stephan James, Arcade Fire’s Win Butler, “Property Brothers” stars Drew and Jonathan Scott, professional tennis player Milos Raonic, actor and singer Kris Wu, seven-time NBA All-Star Tracy McGrady, NBA TV analyst Rick Fox, and Indiana Fever forward Natalie Achonwa.

This will be a big weekend for Serena Williams’ former fling because the main event will be hosted in Drizzy’s hometown. But that doesn’t mean victory will be easy; Hart, who has four NBA All-Star Game MVP’s under his belt, has quite the team.

The Ride Along 2 star’s squad will consist of Jason Sudeikis, Michael B. Jordan, Anthony Anderson, Bryshere “Yazz” Gray, TV host Nick Cannon, five-time NBA All-Star Chauncey Billups, former NBA player Muggsy Bogues, Milwaukee Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry and WNBA MVP Elena Delle Donne.

We can’t wait to see Kart’s comedic coaching and Drake’s cheesy moves.

For the 12th consecutive year, ESPN will televise the game on Friday, Feb. 12 beginning at 7 p.m. ET.

Watch: Julia Roberts And Owen Wilson Give Advice To Their 10-Year-Old Selves

To say Wonder is a must see movie is an understatement! Not only will the film touch you and inspire you to be a better person, it will also entertain you from start to finish.

But don’t take our word for it. HipHollywood sat down with the film’s stars Julia Roberts and Owen Wilson who shared their excitement to bring this heartwarming story to life and how they channeled their real-life parenting skills into the role.

“I think we felt a responsibility to be authentically parents and authentically parents to these two kids, said the 50 year old mother of three. “And I think that’s why you really believe these four people are family and are really having this experience together.”

In the film based on the NY times best seller, Roberts and Wilson play the parents of a teenage daughter (Izabela Vidovic) and 10-year-old boy (Jacob Tremblay) with facial differences entering mainstream elementary school for the first time.

When asked if they had any advice for their ten year old selves, Roberts said: “I have a ten year old son and I tell him to run.”

Meanwhile Wilson says he remembers 5th grade vividly, and enjoyed having his brother Andrew Wilson at the same school to protect him. “It helped so much having an older brother who was already at the school, so that would be the advice I’d give, have a cool older brother.”

Wonder hits theaters November 17, just one day before Wilson’s 49th birthday.
