Quavo to Play for Team Clippers in 2018 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game
It looks like Quavo is bringing his viral video-worthy basketball skills to the big time. He announced as much during a Thursday appearance on ESPN's First Take, where he revealed that he'd be joining Team Clippers during the 2018 NBA All-Star celebrity game in Los Angeles on Friday (Feb. 16).
"I will be taking my talents to NBA All-Star Game," Quavo told First Take show hosts after addressing the success of Culture II. "I heard the Clippers wanna do a little deal, so I'ma go that way. Dat way."
Joining Huncho on the Clippers squad will be his fellow rapper Common, actor-comedian-singer Jamie Foxx, Orange Is the New Black actress Dascha Polanco and former NBA star Paul Pierce.
If you're familiar with Common's story, you might remember that he was a ball-boy for the Chicago Bulls in the 1980s. His dad also played in the American Basketball Association (ABA), so his roots to the game run pretty deep. Then, of course, there's Paul Pierce, who retired from the NBA less than a year ago. Sounds like a squad.
Quavo's Team Clippers will be facing-off against Team Lakers, which includes the surprisingly nasty Justin Bieber, former NBA scorer Nate Robinson, Stranger Things actor Caleb McLaughlin and MTV's Ridiculousness host, Sterling Brim.
The 2018 NBA All-Star celebrity game will take place at the Verizon Up Arena at the Los Angeles Convention Center. The game will tip off at 7 p.m. EST. Grab your popcorn.
