They’ll be faced off against Team America, coached by four-time All-Star Celebrity MVP Kevin Hart, who boasts a complete roster of his own with Michael B. Jordan, Anthony Anderson, Nick Cannon, Chauncey Billups, Muggsy Bogues, Jason Sudeikis, Bryshere Y. Gray and reigning WNBA MVP Elena Delle Donne.
