The NBA All-Star Celebrity Game 2018 presented by Ruffles will feature two more big-name participants. Justin Bieber, a former MVP of the event, and Quavo, a member of the hip-hop group Migos, will both compete.
The game, which signifies one of the marquee attractions of the NBA’s All-Star weekend, will take place Friday, Feb. 16, at Verizon Up Arena at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Tickets are available here.
Professional golfer Bubba Watson has certainly circled the event on his calendar. “I really don’t want to pull out of L.A., but I will pull out if I have to,” Watson said. “I will no-show because I am definitely showing up at the [Celebrity Game]. That I’m not worried about.”
Watson will compete in the golf tournament about an hour away from Verizon Up Arena. The interest in the contest certainly explains why the NBA added two more participants.
Bieber will be making his second appearance as part of Team Lakers, while Quavo will make his debut for Team Clippers. Bieber won the MVP Award in 2011 and has not competed since.
