It is a well known fact that Drizzy and Kevin Hart are tight buds, but during the NBA All Star Celebrity Game on February 14, 2016 that friendship will be put on hold as the two go head to head in the game. The game is being held in Toronto, the hometown that Drake loves and comes from. Drake and Kevin Hart will be the coaches for the opposing teams, with Hart coaching Team USA and Drake coaching Team Canada.
Team USA will include Michael B. Jordan, Chicago Sky player and WNBA MVP Elena Delle Donne, Empire’s Bryshere “Yazz” Gray, Nick Cannon, Mugsy Bogues and Chauncey Billups who both previously played in the NBA, Anthony Anderson, Jason Sudeikis, and Marc Lasry who co-owns the Milwaukee Bucks.
Team Canada, coached by Drake, will include Property Brothers Jonathan and Drew Scott, WNBA Natalie Achonwa from Indiana Fever, Win Butler, Kris Wu, Tracy McGrady, Stephan James, Rick Fox, and Milos Raonic. Drake will get coaching help from Jose Bautista from the Toronto Blue Jays and Steve Nash, a retired star from the NBA.
Many people expect Team USA and Kevin Hart to come out on top in the NBA All Star Celebrity Games because of the star filled roster that he has but no one should count Drake out just yet. Kevin is a strong opponent though, he participated in the game last year where he managed to score 15 points for his team and for three years running he has been named MVP. This year Hart will be coaching instead of playing though. Anyone who is a fan of Drake, basketball, or both should make sure to tune in to catch the game on February 14.
