Myles Garrett will test his basketball skills as he will be a participant in the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game in Cleveland.
He was never an NBA player, but there were clips of him dominating basketball before he announced his retirement from the game.
On Wednesday afternoon, it was announced that Cleveland Browns All-Pro EDGE rusher Myles Garrett will be competing in the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game this year. The game will take place in Cleveland at the Rocket Mortgage FieldHouse, home of the Cavaliers.
We have all seen how dominant Garrett is on the football field, and we have seen glimpses of him on a basketball court. Opposing quarterbacks have to be absolutely frightened when they see Garrett storming towards them. Now, whoever will be in the pain will also likely have a similar feeling.
Garrett also announced the news on his Instagram page with the caption “I’m Back @NBAAllStar”
He will be on Team Nique, coached by NBA legend and Hall of Famer Dominique Wilkins. Joining Garrett on the team will be Cavs legend Daniel “Booby” Gibson, country music superstar Kane Brown, the Mayor of Cleveland, Justin Bibb, and rapper Jack Harlow among others.
This is a tremendous opportunity for Myles Garrett to show the world how talented he is on the hardwood. This is also great for the fans of the Browns, who all love Garrett and everything he has done both on and off the field. He is a major contributor to the Browns success and has had a huge community impact.
Notable names on Team Walton, coached by NBA legend and Hall of Famer Bill Walton are rappers Quzvo of Migos, and Cleveland’s own Machine Gun Kelly. Another Cavs legend, Anderson Varejao will also be on Team Walton.
Even if you aren’t a fan of basketball, check this game out. It is always a ton of fun to watch celebrities from all walks of life compete in a basketball game. This year will be even more exciting for Cleveland sports fans, especially if you are a fan of Garrett and the Browns.
The game will be televised on Friday, February 19 at 7 P.M. ET. and will be the kickoff of NBA All-Star Weekend.
