Spike Lee, Chadwick Boseman, Kevin Hart Set for NBA All-Star Celebrity Game
Common, Anthony Anderson, Ansel Elgort, Michael Rapaport, Nick Cannon and Arcade Fire's Win Butler will also play at Madison Square Garden next weekend.
Spike Lee is going to be directing to the likes of Kevin Hart, Common, Anthony Anderson and Little League superstar Mo'Ne Davis — but instead of on a movie set, it will be on the basketball court.
The famed filmmaker is slated to coach the Sprint NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, which will kick off festivities for the All-Star weekend on Feb. 13-15. Lee, a New York Knicks fan, will coach with Knicks star Carmelo Anthony and ESPN Radio's Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg.
The event, to be held at Madison Square Garden in New York City and televised live on ESPN, will also feature Ansel Elgort, Chadwick Boseman, Michael Rapaport, Abhishek Bachchan, Nick Cannon, Arcade Fire's Win Butler, former NBA players Allan Houston and Chris Mullin, paralympic star Blake Leeper, Memphis Grizzlies owner Robert Pera, NBA TV host Kristen Ledlow, and WNBA stars Shoni Schimmel, Skylar Diggins and Tina Charles.
Keke Palmer will sing the national anthem and Magic! — known for their hit "Rude" — will perform at halftime.
