The NBA just dropped its entertainment lineup for this year’s All-Star weekend — which will take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles February 16-18 — and it’s an impressive list of names! Fergie, 42,will sing the United States national anthem before tipoff at the All-Star game [February 18] and rock band Barenaked Ladies will perform the Canadian national anthem. Comedian and actor Kevin Hart, 38, will headline the player introductions, with 11-time Grammy award-winning singer/songwriter/producer Pharrell Williams, 44, and N.E.R.D set to perform at halftime.

As for the All-Star game, Cleveland’s LeBron James, and Golden State’s Steph Curry are this year’s teams captains. They will be responsible for drafting their fellow players to join their teams, which makes the draft process even richer since the NBA has been nothing short of juicy headlines this season. The starters, which were voted by the fans, players and media, were announced, with Giannis Antetokounmpo [2,530,211 votes], Joel Embiid [1,285,587], Kyrie Irving [2,170,833] and DeMar DeRozan [998,999] all joining LeBron in the East. The starting players joining Steph in the West include, Kevin Durant [2,238,406], James Harden [1,486,830], Anthony Davis [1,088,230] and DeMarcus Cousins [922,269].
One of the biggest mysteries is whether LeBron will select Kyrie for his team, despite the drama that led to Kyrie’s request for a trade over the summer. The second question NBA fans are buzzing about? — Will LeBron choose KD, the player who most pit him against in terms of skill and talent. Not to mention, KD beat him for the 2017 championship.
