The NBA Celebrity All-Star Games is the highly anticipated event that will kick off the All-Star weekend. This year’s competition will be set up with a Celebrity Lakers team playing against a Celebrity Clippers team. The games are known for their high-profile celebrity list and this year is no exception. Among the stars this year is Kris Wu who will be player for the Celebrity Lakers team.

Kris previously played at the NBA Celebrity All-Star Games in 2016, playing on Team Canada. That year Team Canada won with a score of 74-64. Kris played again in 2017 where he played on Team East. The game ended with a 29 point margin of victory for Team East and the 88 points that the team scored were the most that any one team had done.
This year will be slightly different than any other year, however, as there will be a new portion to the game. The new section of the games is called “THE RIDGE”. During this portion any celebrity, NBA, or WNBA player that makes a shot from the 4-point line will prompt a donation of $4,000 to the Thurgood Marshall College Fund.
The game will be airing on ESPN at 7 p.m. ET on February 16.
