Westbrook and Harden, former teammates on the
Oklahoma City Thunder and US Men's Olympic basketball team, will have the opportunity to coach the Jamaican sprinter in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game on Friday in Houston, host of this season's NBA All-Star game.
Harden, who now plays for the
Houston Rockets, and Westbrook will be the opposing coaches. Teams will be selected through a playground-style draft.
Bolt is certainly the best athlete available, but other candidates for the No. 1 pick include Kevin Hart, Common, Ne-Yo and a handful of other minor celebrities and media personalities.
NBA greats Dikembe Mutumbo, Clyde Drexler and Sean Elliot are also scheduled to play.
