Bucks owner Lasry to play in celebrity all-star game
Milwaukee Bucks co-owner Marc Lasry is an all-star.
Lasry will compete in the NBA All-Star Celebrity Game on Friday, Feb. 12 as a member of Team USA, hitting the court alongside teammates like "Creed" star Michael B. Jordan and Jason Sudeikis of "Saturday Night Live" fame.
Head coach and four-time celebrity game all-star Kevin Hart's roster also includes WNBA MVP Elena Delle Donne of the Chicago Sky, television stars Anthony Anderson, Bryshere Gray and Nick Cannon, as well as former NBA stars Muggsy Bogues and Chauncey Billups.
They'll be squaring off against the Drake-led Team Canada, as the Grammy-winning rapper leads a group that features former NBA stars Steve Nash and Tracy McGrady, NBA analyst Rick Fox, Natalie Achonwa of the WNBA's Indiana Fever, accomplished Toronto Blue Jays bat-flipper Jose Bautista, HGTV hosts Drew and Jonathan Scott, pro tennis player Milos Raoni, actor Kris Wu and Arcade Fire's Win Butler.
No word yet on what Lasry's position will be, but the Bucks owner could have his work cut out for him on defense, with Raonic and both "Property Brothers" twins standing 6-foot-5 and Butler cracking 6-foot-4, as the Canadians look to win on friendly soil at Toronto's Ricoh Coliseum.
