Sting To Headline NBA All-Star Game Halftime Show … Unless LeBron Somehow Gets Him Fired
The first portion of that headline is true -- there will be entertainment at halftime of the NBA All-Star Game, and Sting is a not-half-bad choice. The game will be in Canada, after all, so you knew the choice would be Canadian or British. And Loverboy was unavailable.
The game will be played at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto on Feb. 14 -- otherwise known as Valentine's Day, which is why Loverboy would have been a better choice. Game time is 8 p.m. ET, and Cirque du Soleil will perform a show prior to the game. Because when you think NBA, you think midair human pyramids.
The night before, Drake and Kevin Hart will coach teams in the NBA All-Star Celebrity game. Drake's team, which will represent his native Canada, includes "Race" actor Stephan James, Arcade Fire’s Win Butler, "Property Brothers" stars Drew and Jonathan Scott, professional tennis player Milos Raonic, actor and singer Kris Wu, seven-time NBA All-Star Tracy McGrady, NBA TV analyst Rick Fox, and Indiana Fever forward Natalie Achonwa. He will also be joined by Steve Nash and Toronto Blue Jays right fielder José Bautista.
There is no way to measure how much I enjoy the last sentence above.
Hart's team, representing the U.S., includes actors Jason Sudeikis, Michael B. Jordan, Anthony Anderson, and Bryshere "Yazz" Gray, TV host Nick Cannon, five-time NBA All-Star Chauncey Billups, former NBA player Muggsy Bogues, Milwaukee Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry and WNBA MVP Elena Delle Donne.
My only hope is that Sting sings "We're Sending Our Love Down The Well."
