Not very subtle, Orlando.

The performers for a pre-NBA All-Star Game concert were leaked by the New York Daily News — later confirmed by the league — and we learn that one is Gym Class Heroes, who along with Neon Hitch will do their single “Get you’re a** back home.”

This message is directed at you, Dwight Howard. (Maybe not intentionally, but then again….)

The other headliner is J. Cole, who was just nominated for a Grammy for Best New Artist, and he was the first guy signed to Jay-Z’s Roc Nation label. Pentatonix and Kayla Brianna also will perform before tipoff of the All-Star game. Also, Kenny Smith’s daughter Brianna — you’ve seen her on TNT’s Inside the NBA getting hyped — will perform.

After the Grammys, I’m just glad it’s not Nicki Minaj.

No word on who the halftime headliner is. Yet.

    Pretty terrible line-up.

    I have no problem with nepotism. If I had zero talent I’d use my relatives and their contacts to get ahead. If you saw the video then you know The Jets daughter is pretty awful.

    If you really have to describe who J Cole is your either an idiot or Old as Dirt.

    Is MIA going to be there?

    I thought the idea was to entertain the audience, not perform a mass plumbing test.

    Cole is cool. Gym Class Heroes aren’t bad either. Depends on your taste in music no doubt. At least they are artist that have out music today. Don’t know any of the others acts.
