Ansel Elgort, Kevin Hart & Common Will Play In The NBA All-Star Celebrity Game

The roster also includes Nick Cannon, Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler, Anthony Anderson, and Chadwick Boseman.

There’s nothing quite as awesome as the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game to remind us that not every famous person can excel at more than one thing.

Sure, there are some exceptions — remember when Justin Bieber killed it on the court and nabbed the MVP trophy back in 2011? But for the most part, it’s simply a hilarious and entertaining way for celebrities to show off their skillz (or lack thereof) and not take themselves too seriously.

Today, the NBA announced the roster for its star-studded annual showdown, which airs Feb. 13 on ESPN, and it’s full of some awesomely talented familiar faces.

Among this year’s players are…drum roll please…

Ansel Elgort

Ansel’s a well-known New York Knicks fan (judging by his Instagram, that hat is almost definitely glued to his cute little head), and we’re positive he’ll tear it up.

Kevin Hart

The “Wedding Ringer” comic is a three-time MVP of the All-Star game, and he’s always super entertaining to watch on court.


Common’s also an All-Star veteran — this will be his sixth appearance, and judging by the clip above, he’s ready to ball, y’all.

Win Butler

The Arcade Fire frontman may seem like an odd choice, but Win’s actually a huge hoops fan and, standing at a towering 6'4", he definitely has a big height advantage.

Nick Cannon

Nah, that T-shirt isn’t entirely true. Nick’s also an All-Star game vet, and hopefully he’s been training as hard as he did last year!

The two teams will be coached by Knicks forward and Knicks superfan Spike Lee on one side, and sports radio hosts Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg on the opposing side.

The game will also include performances by Keke Palmer, who will sing “The Star-Spangled Banner,” and MAGIC!, who will bust out their smash hit “Rude” during halftime.
