The Cleveland Browns' season may have ended over a moth ago, but defensive end Myles Garrett is still getting his daily dose of competition. The three-time Pro Bowler was recently announced as a participant in the upcoming 2022 NBA All-Star Celebrity Game taking place in Cleveland, OH.

It's interesting to see Garrett's name on the list given head coach Kevin Stefanski told reporters his star defensive end was done playing basketball last year. Of course, those comments stemmed from a viral video of Garrett dunking on innocent bystanders during a pickup game.

The celebrity game is a much more relaxed environment, though. The physicality is at an all-time low and Garrett likely just wants to put on a show for his home fans. The 26-year-old did play basketball during his high school days and has always been adamant about how much he loves the sport.

Garrett is still improving even after setting the Browns' single season sack record with 16.0 this past season. The elite pass-rusher will now suit up alongside a different set of teammates that include rapper Jack Harlow, Cleveland Mayor Justin Bibb and former Cleveland Cavalier Booby Gibson.

Fans looking to tune in the 2022 NBA All-Star Celebrity game can find it on ESPN at 7 p.m. ET on Friday, February 18. It is one of many exciting festivities being held over the course of the weekend before the pros come out to play in the NBA All-Star game on the night of Sunday, February 20.
