An entertaining portion of All-Star weekend is always watching clumsy “celebrities” taking the basketball court and attempting to play basketball. This year’s game features some legit basketball talent — Dikembe Mutombo (eight-time NBA All-Star), Clyde Drexler (10-time NBA All-Star), Sean Elliott (two-time NBA All-Star), Bruce Bowen (NBA legend) and WNBA stars Tamika Catchings and Maya Moore — but the rest of the roster is full of a misfit cast.
There is one member of the Celebrity Game roster that isn’t a pro basketball player that has drawn some interest, however, and that is Olympic sprinter Usain Bolt. Bolt will be one to watch throughout the game. Bolt probably can’t handle the ball and likely has a horrifying jumper, but his 6-foot-5 frame and athleticism should set him up for a few dunks throughout the game.
This year’s game will be coached by Houston Rockets guard James Harden and Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook.
Here are the participants for this year’s Celebrity Game coached by Westbrook and Harden:
