We know he can shoot, but can he coach?
Drake will do his best Gregg Popovich impersonation when the Grammy Award-winning rapper coaches the Canadian team in the NBA All-Star Celeb Game.
Kevin Hart, a three-time MVP of the game, will run the show for the American team that will feature actors Michael B. Jordan, Anthony Anderson, and Bryshere "Yazz" Gray; five-time NBA All-Star and ESPN analyst Chauncey Billups; NBA legend Muggsy Bogues; Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry; and WNBA MVP Elena Delle Donne.
Drizzy will be in charge of a roster featuring one future Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Famer in Steve Nash. Joining the two-time NBA MVP on the hardwood will be former Raptors guard Tracy McGrady; Blue Jays outfielder Jose Bautista, professional tennis player Milos Raonic; actor and singer Kris Wu, NBA TV analyst Rick Fox; Natalie Achonwa from the WNBA's Indiana Fever; Arcade Fire’s Win Butler; and Drew and Jonathan Scott from HGTV’s Property Brothers.
The game, to be played at Ricoh Center in Drake's native Toronto Friday, Feb. 12, will help kickoff NBA All-Star Weekend. ESPN will televise with coverage beginning at 7 pm ET.
