Thunder's Kevin Durant To Coach West Team In All-Star Celebrity Game

The Oklahoma City Thunder's Kevin Durant may not suit up to show his stuff during the NBA All-Star Weekend until Saturday, but that doesn't mean he won't be on the court. The Thunder's, and one of the league's, leading scorer will be coaching the west team in tonight's Sprint NBA All-Star Celebrity Game.

Durant will be coaching against the Magic's Dwight Howard with celebrities like Ne-Yo, Common, Kevin Hart and JB Smooth, as well as former players Mitch Richmond, Penny Hardaway and Nick Anderson. Durant's team will try to bounce back from a Celebrity Game loss last year in which Justin Bieber shined for the East team. WNBA 2011 MVP Tamika Catchings and ESPN analyst Doug Gottlieb will be playing as well.

The Sprint NBA All-Star Celebrity Game begins at 7 p.m. (ET) and will be aired nationally on ESPN.
