On Friday night, DK Metcalf showed that his athleticism easily translates to the basketball court.
The Seahawks wide receiver totaled 20 points, 10 rebounds and four blocks in the 2023 Celebrity Game, leading Team Dwyane to an 81-78 win over Team Ryan and winning the MVP award.
Jazz governor Ryan Smith and 13-time All-Star and Jazz minority owner Dwyane Wade served as the honorary captains for this year’s Celebrity Game teams.
