Drake and Kevin Hart are planning to put on their coaching gear once NBA All-Star season rolls into town up north. The league announced that the Toronto native will serve as Team Canada’s head coach for the celebrity game during the highly-anticipated weekend.
The Toronto Raptors Global Ambassador will go head-to-head with Team USA led by comedian/actor Kevin Hart. Former NBA player Steve Nash, Race actor Stephan James, and NBA TV analyst Rick Fox will play for Team Canada, while Wild N’ Out creator Nick Cannon, Creed‘s Michael B. Jordan, and Empire‘s Bryshere “Yazz” Gray will hold down Team USA.
Drizzy is a mainstay on the hardwood whether it’s sitting courtside at college or professional basketball games, or practicing trick shots on his own personal court. It’ll be interesting to see the “Energy” rapper put on his coach hat and possibly lead his team to victory, while Hart, who’s putting in work in the gym, might practice a few fundamentals with Team USA that he’s learned since getting in shape.
The festivity will take place Feb. 12 at 7 p.m. EST on ESPN.
