Rapper Quavo may have to consider a career change. OK, not exactly, but the Migos rapper is one hell of a basketball player.

After winning the MVP trophy last year, the "Stir Fry" rapper returned for a repeat, gunning for the MVP title again at this year's NBA All-Star Celebrity Game held at the Bojangles Coliseum in Charlotte, NC.

The "Motorsport" rapper scored a game-high 27 points and 9 rebounds. Making the crowd go wild, Quavo landed a 4-point shot (which only applies to the celebrity game) in the last 20 seconds. However, his team lost - 82 to 80 - so he didn't nab the MVP this year.

Comedian Famous Los walked away with the MVP trophy this year after putting up 22 points.



The "home" team had Hall of Famer Dawn Staley as the coach, and the "away" team was coached by WNBA star Sue Bird. The home team all have ties to North or South Carolina.

On the party scene...



NBA legend Michael Jordan threw his annual birthday bash that goes down every All-Star Weekend. And it was LIT for the Charlotte Hornets owner's 56th birthday. The "Jordan Party" is clearly the hot ticket party everyone wants an invite to. Rapper Travis Scott, who recently released his Air Jordan 1 collab, performed during the shindig with several celebrities in attendance, including "Power" star LaLa Anthony, Terrence J and more.
