A self-professed fan of popular Barclays Premier League team Manchester United, Bolt, who is also a long-time Boston Celtics fan, will get a chance to show how much of a 'baller' he truly is.
The celebrity teams will be coached by NBA All-Star James Harden of the Houston Rockets and Russell Westbrook from last year's Western Conference champions, and beaten NBA finalists the Oklahoma City Thunder.
There also will be some NBA Legends in the game, Dikembe Mutombo, Clyde Drexler, Sean Elliott and Bruce Bowen.
Also playing will be WNBA stars Tamika Catchings (Indiana Fever) and Maya Moore (Minnesota Lynx).
Queen Latifah and TV host Samantha Harris will be the assistant coaches. But they won't be better dressed than the head coaches.
The 2013 Sprint NBA All-Star Celebrity Game is part of the All-Star weekend Friday night of events.
