Meet the likely star of the NBA's Celebrity Game.

The NBA's All-Star Game rosters are already out. Today, rosters for the Celebrity Game were released.

The two teams will be coached by ESPN's Rachel Nichols and Katie Nolan. Former NBA stars Tracy McGrady and Paul Pierce will also serve on the coaching staffs.

Celebrities like Jamie Foxx, Anthony Anderson and Jerry Ferrara will be playing in the game. So will WNBA stars Candace Parker and Stefanie Dolson.

The star of the game, though, could easily be Rachel DeMita. The former women's college basketball player turned social media star will be on Team Lakers coached by Nichols, McGrady and Michael B. Jordan.

DeMita has done work for NBA 2K and UPROXX, among others. She has more than 170K followers on Twitter and more than 600k followers on Instagram.

She grew up in Ohio and earned a scholarship to Old Dominion. In high school, she earned a McDonald's All-American Game nomination.

DeMita played in the Celebrity Game last year and ">balled out. She's sure to do it again this year.
