The NBA All-Star Weekend is almost upon us and while we’re all excited to see the best players in basketball play against each other, there are a lot of fun events happening all weekend. One of the longest-standing events is the NBA Celebrity Game.

This year, the teams are going to be coached by Shannon Sharpe and Stephen A. Smith. Big names like 50 Cent, Peyton Manning, A’Ja Wilson, and Lil Wayne will also be serving as assistant coaches. Out of all of those coaches, Wilson’s the only one qualified to coach basketball but that’s part of the fun.

We’ve seen some A-list celebrities play in the game in the past and this year is no exception.


One of the notable names who is joining Team Sharpe is Cowboys star Micah Parsons. He’s a huge trash talker and I’m sure he’ll be all over the basketball court. He’ll be playing against Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud, who is playing for Team Smith.

I’m also excited to see one of my favorite players ever Metta World Peace return to the basketball court. I’m not sure it’s smart for the infamous tough guy to play with a bunch of celebrities but I’m here for it. He’s older now so I doubt he’ll be throwing too many elbows.

EGOT winner Jennifer Hudson is also making an appearance. It seems like the only thing she hasn’t won an award for is sports so maybe that’ll change this year.


Hopefully, we get some big NBA news or NBA rumors from the celebrity game. There’s been some iconic moments to come from the game. Who could forget a young Justin Beiber balling up or having Kevin Hart play at center?

What’s great about the celebrity game is that it’s not taken too seriously. It’s a time for these players to have fun. Though I do worry about World Peace, Stroud and Parsons. Those three are as competitive as they come so everybody will have to bring their A-game.
