This Valentine’s Day, famous faces will heat up the court at the 2014 Sprint NBA All-Star Celebrity Game in New Orleans.
Comedian Kevin Hart and America’s Got Talent’s Nick Cannon are two of the top players returning to the annual exhibition February 14th on ESPN.
Hart, who has earned MVP for the past two years, will be feeling some extra love during the game: his new movie About Last Night premieres on V-Day.
During the match, Columbus Short – Harrison on Scandal – will suit up as basketball player rather than a gladiator. And Michael B. Jordan of That Awkward Moment will also join the roster, hopefully taking tips from the former NBA superstar who shares his name.
The celebrities will be divided into West and East teams, coached by NBA Countdown hosts Bill Simmons and Jalen Rose, respectively.
The game typically features an array of actors, athletes, sports commentators and even politicians. This year, other players include E!’s Terrence Jenkins, U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan,
Mike & Mike hosts Mike Golic and Mike Greenberg, NBA Inside Stuff host Kristen Ledlow and WNBA stars Skylar Diggins and Elena Delle Donne.
