Quavo takes top honors in NBA All-Star Celebrity Game

A late addition to the roster wound up making the biggest mark at the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game.

Stars flocked to Los Angeles, Calif. to watch–and play–in this year’s event, which was sponsored by Ruffles. Quavo, a member of the hit rap group Migos, took home top honors as the game’s MVP Award winner.

A star quarterback in high school, Quavo’s athleticism was on full display. He scored 19 points and hauled in five rebounds at the Verizon Up Arena, leading Team Clippers to a 75-66 win.

Rachel DeMita and Bubba Watson also provided highlights. DeMita led Team Lakers with 17 points, and Watson hurriedly left his professional golf tournament to make tip-off. Perhaps not a coincidence, Watson would go on to win the Genesis Open, which concluded Sunday at the Riviera Country Club.  

“When you have a chance to win like that, why would you still want to come over here? Cause life is short,” Watson said following the game. “Life is fun, man, and so I want to be here.”

Andre De Grasse, a Canadian sprinter, also enjoyed a successful event, as he teamed with Quavo to lead the Lakers to victory.

Migos and Quavo will return to California to perform at Coachella, which takes place in April.

Next year’s All-Star festivities will take place in Charlotte, N.C., where the game returns for the first time since 1991. Keep it here on AXS.com for more NBA news and tickets to select games.
