Romeo appeared in the 2017 NBA Celebrity All-Star game on the same team as his dad, who was invited to NBA training camps in 1998 and 1999, but the “My Baby” artist isn’t your average celebrity hooper. Romeo played two years under head coach Tim Floyd on a full ride at USC alongside childhood friend and now NBA All-Star, DeMar DeRozan. Miller expanded to SLAM, “I’ve felt that’s what built me to be the person I am today, playing sports.”

Maserati Rome described himself as a pugnacious point guard, built from the Chris Paul mold.
