J. Cole and Common

J. Cole stepped off the sidelines and onto the court at Friday’s NBA All-Star Celebrity Game at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando. The Roc Nation rapper, who will perform at Sunday’s Sprint Pregame Concert, showed off his skills with a slam dunk while playing against the West’s Common and Ne-Yo. Just before the buzzer rang, Cole blocked Common’s shot. “LOL! He’s gonna pay 4 that!” the Chi-town MC later joked. The East won 86-54.
