Westbrook won’t want to miss All-Star concert

Count Russell Westbrook as one All-Star who approves of the All-Star Pregame Concert headlining act.

The NBA released a statement on Tuesday, unveiling the artists who will headline the pregame concert Sunday in Houston before the NBA All-Star Game.

“Global pop music sensation Ke$ha, Grammy Award-winner hip hop artist Ludacris and Grammy Award-nominated hip hop artist B.o.B will help tip off the 2013 NBA All-Star Game when they perform during the Sprint NBA All-Star Pregame Concert on Sunday, Feb. 17,” the statement read.

In January, ESPN cameras caught Westbrook singing along Ke$ha’s hit song “Die Young,” in a tease before the Oklahoma City Thunder took on the Dallas Mavericks.

No word yet if Gregg Popovich, who is coaching the Western Conference All-Stars, will allow Westbrook to leave the locker room to enjoy the show.
