Jesse Williams to Compete in NBA All-Star Celebrity Game
Awesome news, basketball fans — and fans of looking at attractive people in general. According to People, Grey’s Anatomy’s very own Jesse Williams (Jackson Avery) will be participating in the 2014 NBA All-Star Celebrity game on February 14!
The game, which is taking place in New Orleans this year, will be divided into West and East teams and will be coached by the hosts of NBA Countdown, Bill Simmons and Jalen Rose. While Jesse already plays basketball recreationally, we hope he’s kept in practice despite his busy Grey’s filming schedule!
Who else is playing? Two-time celebrity game MVP Kevin Hart, Nick Cannon, That Awkward Moment’s Michael B. Jordan, and even Victoria’s Secret model Erin Heatherton. Jesse will also be joined from another familiar face from Shondaland: Scandal’s Columbus Short.
Can’t make it to Louisiana? No problem! ESPN will air the game at 7 p.m. ET on game day. And we’ve gotta admit: Watching Jesse Williams play basketball totally sounds like an ideal Valentine’s Day to us!
