On Friday, Bad Bunny kicked off his weekend by making history as the first Boricua star to play in the NBA All-Star Celebrity game. The Puerto Rican rapper hit the court as part of the away team, alongside Quavo, Hasan Minhaj, and plenty of other celebs. Before the two teams faced off against each other, El Conejo Malo posted a snapshot of his jersey from the locker room, sharing his expectations for the game. And if you blinked, you may have missed the bottle of “Michael’s Secret Stuff” he snuck into the shot, the legendary elixir used to inspire the Tune Squad to beat the Monstars in Space Jam.

Sadly, El Conejo Malo finished the game with zero points, two rebounds, zero assists, and one turnover. The X100PRE artist laughed off the whole thing on Instagram with a video recap of his participation in the game. “I think you all have seen why I devote myself to music haha,” he wrote.

But as a consolation prize, Benito got to hit the Spectrum Center in Charlotte, North Carolina once again for Sunday night’s actual All-Star game, where he sat courtside with fellow Bori rappers Anuel AA and Fat Joe. On Instagram, Joey Crack posted a photo of the trio and wrote, “Llegaron los Latinos.”

Anuel, Joe, and Bad Bunny even had a brief encounter with Steph Curry that night, when the Golden State Warriors point guard came over and shook their hands.

Check out all the photos below, and cross your fingers that El Conejo Malo makes an appearance in Space Jam 2.
