While the main event, the All-Star Game itself will take place on Sunday, February 16, (Monday morning IST), there will also be an All-Star Celebrity Game next weekend.

NBA All-Star 2020: Quavo lights up basketball court in New York alongside Drake, Justin Bieber

While Drake and Justin Bieber will not feature in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game, Quavo is one of the many star names on the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game roster. Earlier this week, rapper Quavo was pictured practising at a basketball court in New York as the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game approaches. Interestingly, Quavo was the Celebrity All-Star MVP the season before last. In that game, Quavo scored a game-high 19 points. He also contributed five rebounds, three assists and two steals in that game. Before the All-Star Celebrity Game that year, Quavo accompanied Drake on the 43-date Aubrey & The Three Migos Tour at the end of 2018. During that tour, Quavo and Drake reportedly played basketball to stay in shape for the tour.
