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.
