The NBA All-Star Celebrity Game is an annual basketball event that takes place during the highly anticipated All-Star Weekend. The game typically features a mix of celebrities, former NBA players, and WNBA players, and is played in a light-hearted, fun atmosphere.
Every year, the celebrities who show up typically include actors, musicians, and comedians. The game is a chance for the non-athletes to show off their basketball skills while also raising money for various charities. It’s been a staple of All-Star Weekend since 2003 and is always a fan-favorite.
