Justin Timberlake can’t hit the courts of the NBA himself as a player, but the superfan, who is often seen courtside at Lakers games, has found a way to get even closer to the game he loves: JT will narrate NBA Entertainment documentary Dream Season: 23 & 24, which chronicles Kobe Bryant’s and LeBron James’ quest of the championship.


Kobe and LeBron are locked in an intense battle over who will triumph in the hoops game this year, as both have legions of fans devoted to their considerable athletic talents.


Others who have lent their skills to the series in the past include Denzel Washington, Forest Whitaker, Terrence Howard, Djimon Hounsou and Chris Rock, so JT’s in good company!

The one-hour special premieres on ESPN on Thursday, May 21  at 7 p.m. ET.
