The NBA All-Star Game is being held in Madison Square Garden this year. I had the privilege of covering the All-Star Celebrity Game, which mixes celebrities with NBA legends and current WNBA players...
The West team was coached by Spike Lee, John McEnroe and sportscaster Mike Golic. The team included actors Nick Cannon, Anthony Anderson, Ansel Elgort and Jesse Williams; comedian Sarah Silverman and athletes Mo'ne Davis, Skylar Diggins and Chris Mullin. Meanwhile the East was coached by New York Knick Carmelo Anthony and sportscaster Mike Greenberg. Their team included comedian Kevin Hart, actors Chadwick Boseman & Michael Rapaport; rapper/actor Common and athletes Shoni Schimmel, Allan Houston and Tina Charles. The West defeated the East 57-51, with Hart winning his 4th MVP in a row.
A great night of humor and hoops!
