Mo'ne Davis, Kevin Hart highlight Celebrity All-Star Game rosters
One of the more exciting events of the NBA All-Star Weekend is the Celebrity All-Star Game, which is always good for a few moments of laughter with some of the participants. Well the 2015 version of the game should be no different, as the lineups were announced on Thursday and it's more of the usual suspects, USA Today's Nina Mandell reports.
Little League World Series phenom Mo'ne Davis will look to see if she can dominate the adults in basketball much like she did the competition on the diamond last summer.
Comedian Kevin Hart will be returning to the game to see if he can collect his fourth consecutive MVP trophy. He won his third in a row last season, despite the fact that he only scored seven points.
Nick Cannon will be returning to the floor once again in the Celebrity All-Star Game, even though he seems to not really understand why they keep inviting him, given the fact that he's terrible at basketball.
Other celebrities in the game include rapper Common, Knicks super fan Michael Rapport, Grizzlies owner Robert Pera, Ansel Elgort, Anthony Anderson, Knicks assistant GM Allan Houston, Paralympian Blake Leeper, Kristen Ledlow and WNBA stars Tina Charles, Skylar Diggins and Schoni Schimmel.
One team will be coached by ESPN's Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg, while Carmelo Anthony and Spike Lee will coach the other team.
The 2015 Celebrity All-Star Game will be played on Friday, Feb. 13, at 7 p.m. ET at Madison Square Garden.
