Drake and Kevin Hart aren't going "Back to Back." They're going head to head.

With the 2016 NBA All-Star Weekend being held in Toronto next month, the league has tabbed Drizzy and Hart to coach the All-Star Celebrity Game teams, as reported by BleacherReport.

Balling for Drizzy on the up-north squad will be the likes of indie rocker Win Butler, former NBA stars Tracy McGrady and Rick Fox, WNBA player Natalie Achonwa, and brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott from HGTV's The Property Brothers.

They'll be up against the comedian's American team, featuring Michael B. Jordan, Anthony Anderson, Nick Cannon, former NBA stars Chauncey Billups and Mugsy Bogues and WNBA superstar Elena Della Donne.

Drizzy will be aided by assistant coaches, former two-time NBA MVP Steve Nash and Toronto Blue Jays slugger Jose Bautista.

Hey, maybe Kevin, a Philadelphia native, can get revenge on Drake on behalf of Meek Mill

The Celebrity Game will take place Friday, February 12 as part of NBA All-Star Weekend in Toronto.

Let the games begin.
