The NBA All-Star game at the Staples Center in Los Angeles is a month away, and the league announced today that comedy superstar Kevin Hart and 11-time Grammy Award winner Pharrell Williams and N.E.R.D will headline the game-day entertainment.
Brian Windhorst joins SportsNation to discuss the new format for the NBA All-Star Game, calling it “playground-style.”
The 67th annual game will air live at 8 p.m. ET on TNT and will be seen by fans in more than 200 countries and territories in more than 40 languages. TNT will televise the All-Star Game for the 16th consecutive year, marking Turner Sports 33rd year of NBA All-Star coverage.
Prior to the game, Hart, who is currently appearing throughout the country with his wildly successful “Irresponsible” stand-up comedy tour while his most recent film, Jumanji, is his highest grossing to date, will take the All-Star stage for what is sure to be a hilarious opening introduction of the All-Star teams.
