Win Butler and Common to Compete in NBA All-Star Celebrity Game

Win Butler, Common, NBA All-Star Game

Win Butler has proved that he’s a talented singer and guitarist, but what are his free-throw skills like? We’ll soon know the answer to that question, as the Arcade Fire frontman is going to compete in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game alongside a handful of other musicians and varying degrees of celebrities. Butler, who stands at a fairly impressive 6’4″, will join Common (who at 6’0″ is a veteran of several NBA All-Star Games), Nick Cannon (6’0″), and an assortment of non-musical ballers, including three-time MVP Kevin Hart (5’4″), actor Chadwick Boseman (6’0″), and ace softball pitcher Mo’ne Davis (5’4″).

The big game airs on Friday, February 13 on ESPN at 7 p.m. EST. Magic! will perform at the halftime show. The professional All-Star Game, which will be held on February 15, will also boast performances by Ariana Grande and Christina Aguilera.
