The NBA All-Star Game is coming up in New Orleans and that means the festivities are starting to get underway already. The teams still have a ways to go before All-Star Weekend kicks off, but some non-NBA players have already committed to appearing as part of the event.

Each year the NBA holds a Celebrity All-Star game and the participants in this year’s game have officially been announced. Two-time MVP Kevin Hart has returned to headline a call sheet that includes the likes of Nick Cannon and even a couple of WNBA players.

Here’s a complete rundown of the celebrities who have committed to appearing in this year’s game, per Variety:

  • Kevin Hart (Actor)
  • Nick Cannon (America’s Got Talent Host)
  • Michael B. Jordan (Actor)
  • Columbus Short (Actor)
  • Terrence Jenkins (E! News Host)
  • Bruce Bowen
  • Erin Heatheron (Model)
  • Kristen Ledlow (Host)
  • Stan Verrett
  • Jesse Williams
  • Mike Golic
  • Mike Greenberg
  • U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan
  • Skylar Diggins of the Tulsa Shock
  • Elena Delle Donne of the Chicago Sky

We can likely expect Hart to lead the way with things again this year, as well as plenty of jokes about actor Michael B. Jordan having the exact same name as the iconic Chicago Bulls legend.

The Celebrity All-Star Game will air live from New Orleans on ESPN next month at 7pm ET.
