With Jamie Foxx, Paul Pierce, and Tracy McGrady suiting up, the 2018 NBA Celebrity All-Star Game already looked interesting. The game's appeal, however, just increased tenfold.
Two of the biggest names in music have decided they'll lace up their J's and run with their fellow celebrities at the Staples Center Friday night. Justin Bieber and Migos' Quavo have opted in as late additions. The game will tip at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN.
Bieber won the Celebrity All-Star Game's MVP in 2011, and his love for basketball has been widely publicized over the years. He's gone through puberty and changed a lot as a person in the seven years since that game—now, we'll see how much his game has changed.
It's well-known that Quavo can hoop, too. The lefty has a nice stroke. He's a good athlete in general, having been majorly into football when he was younger.
One of these guys could actually be the game's MVP.
The Celebrity Game has gone down a few notches over the years—the list of players has gone from A-listers to more C-listers—but this year's crop is top tier once again, perhaps a testament to the NBA's explosion.
Bieber will play on Team Lakers and Quavo will play on Team Clippers. As a reminder, here are the full rosters:

More like the Celebrity All-Skrrt Game, am I right? I'll see myself out.
