NBA All-Star Weekend Is Here — Meet the Roster for the 2022 Celebrity Game
It's officially Presidents' Day Weekend, or as we NBA fans like to call it, All-Star Weekend. For three nights, some of the biggest and most popular NBA stars assemble to show off their talents in various events, including the skills challenge, three-point contest, and the electrifying slam dunk contest.
However, our favorite event of the weekend is the one that kicks everything off: the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game. The game features many stars, from athletes and musicians, to actors. If you're planning to tune in, like we are, check out the roster for the 2022 NBA Celebrity Game below!
