While fantasy sports teams are largely reserved for the internet and video games, each year, basketball fans can watch some of their favorite players from different teams play team up each other in the NBA All-Star game.

At halftime with the players off the court, event attendees must still be entertained, creating the need for a half-time performance. This year's performer at the NBA All-Star game will be Grammy-nominated singer and songwriter J. Cole.

The game is being played at the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina, making J. Cole a fitting performer. Although he was born on a military base in Germany, the 34-year-old was raised in Fayetteville, North Carolina, located about 130 miles from Charlotte.

Drawing millions of fans, even if you're not at the game, there are multiple ways to catch his performance.
