It’s the ultimate sports showdown: Canada versus America, with a little celebrity twist.
This year’s NBA All-Star weekend is in none other than Toronto, Canada and the roster’s finally out for the much anticipated NBA All-Star Celebrity Game that’ll take place on Feb. 12.
In Canada’s corner we have Drizzy Drake, a Grammy-winning artist who’s just a Toronto Raptors’ global ambassador on the side, as head coach. He’ll also have the fabulous Steve Nash and honorary Canadian Jose Bautista helping him out on the sidelines. His coaching rival? Comedian Kevin Hart will be calling the shots for the States.
As for the Canadian celebs who’ll be on the court? We’re not ashamed to say that our team looks stacked. Some of the big names are:
Arcade Fire’s Win Butler
Badass pro tennis player Milos Raonic
Former Raptor and honorary Canuck Tracy McGrady
As for the other team, they went more the actor route–hey, we guess us Canadians like variety. Some of their big names include:
Creed’s Michael B. Jordan
Blackish’s Anthony Anderson
America’s Got Talent host Nick Cannon
We don’t know about you, but we definitely plan on getting the popcorn ready because this looks like it’s gonna be good. Go Canada!
