The BET Experience is happening later this month, and one major event of the festivities is the annual BET Experience Celebrity Basketball Game. Apparently, LeBron James and Steph Curry aren’t the only ones who are trying to show off their hooping skills. Snoop Dogg and Fat Joe will serve as the coaches for the opposing teams with Chris Brown, The Game, YG, Joey Bada$$, Soulja Boy, Nick Cannon, DJ Mustard, Jidenna, Amine´and Dave East confirmed as players. Singers Bell Biv DeVoe, Rotimi and Trevor Jackson, actor Brandon T. Jackson, producer Stevie J, boxer Floyd Mayweather and retired NBA player Doug Christie will also be taking sides to show off their best basketball skills. Hopefully Chris Brown and Soulja Boy have officially squashed their beef, and there won’t be any drama on or off the court.
This year, ESPN’s Jemele Hill and Michael Smith are expected to give the play-by-play of the game. With Fat Joe and Snoop Dogg trying to guide their respective teams to victory, this just might be one of the most entertaining events of the season.
The BETX Celebrity Basketball Game is sponsored by Sprite and State Farm. It will be held on June 24th in Los Angeles, California at 12 PM PT. The BET Experience takes place at L.A.’s Staples Center from June 22 to 25th and will culminate with the BET Awards hosted by Saturday Night Live’s Leslie Jones on June 25th. Rae Sremmurd, Snoop Dogg, Gucci Mane, Migos, DJ Khaled and others are expected to perform. Will you be watching?
