Drake's basketball fandom is well documented: he's a vocal supporter of his hometown team, the Toronto Raptors, and he's adopted the Kentucky Wildcats as his favorite NCAA squad. His love of the game will be put to test next month when he coaches Team Canada in a showdown with Kevin Hart's Team U.S.A. during the NBA All-Star weekend.
Team Canada includes Win Butler, better known for his work in the band Arcade Fire, former NBA players Rick Fox and Tracy McGrady, and Natalie Achonwa, who plays in the WNBA. They'll face off against a group that includes Jason Sudeikis, Anthony Anderson Michael B. Jordan, Empire's Hakeem Lyon (real name Bryshere Yazz Gray), Nick Cannon, Elena Delle Donna (who was named MVP last year in the WNBA), Muggsy Bogues, and Chauncey Billups.
Steve Nash, who won NBA MVP awards two years in a row, will help Drake in his coaching efforts. The game takes place February 12.
