Drake and Win Butler teaming up for NBA Celebrity All-Star game

The 6 God is representing Canada in a squad that includes the Arcade Fire frontman.

Drake is leading a celebrity basketball team that includes Arcade Fire frontman Win Butler as part of the NBA’s All-Star Weekend.

The Canadian rapper will represent his nation as the team’s head coach. Playing alongside Butler in Team Canada is NBA legend Tracy McGrady, ex-Laker Rick Fox, tennis star Milos Raonic and ‘Property Brothers’ stars Drew and Jonathan Scott.

Drake’s side will take on Team USA, coached by comedian Kevin Hart. The American squad includes actors Michael B. Jordan and Anthony Anderson, rapper Nick Cannon, former NBA stars Chauncey Billups and Muggsy Bogues and WNBA player Elena Delle Donne.

Butler will bring valuable experience to his squad having also played in last year’s NBA All-Star tournament. He scored an impressive eight points and pulled down 12 rebounds during his previous outing. Butler also showed off his skills when he teamed up with Diplo for an impromptu game at Hangout festival in 2015.

Drake is also no stranger to the sidelines of a basketball court, regularly attending Toronto Raptors games in support of his hometown side.

In 2014, he was caught on-camera using a lint roller while watching a game. The incident inspired the team to launch their own Raptors branded lint-rollers as merchandise in his honour.

The 2016 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game will air live on February 12.

Drake is reportedly currently in the studio finishing up his fourth album ‘Views From The 6’ due for release in 2016.
