The stars were out for the NBA Paris Game 2023, where the Chicago Bulls and the Detroit Pistons put on a show for fans. But players weren't the only ones in the spotlight as other big-name celebrities came out to watch the league's return to the City of Love.

Chicago (21-24) came on top with a score of 126-108 behind Zach LaVine (30 points) and DeMar DeRozan (26 points).

Here are the best stars who have attended the game.


Khaby Lame

The silent Tik Tok star attended the NBA Paris Game and even showed a few of his handles while sitting courtside. Lame rose to fame with his hilarious reactions to questionable life hacks on Tik Tok.

We're hoping Lame can showcase some of his handles in future celebrity All-Star games.

Pharrell Williams has been a friend and fan of the league for quite a long time, so it's nice to see him attend the NBA's global games. The legendary record producer was seen sitting next to LA Lakers legend Magic Johnson. We can't read their lips, but we think they're talking about something humorous.

Ex-Bulls center Noah is of French descent. His father, Yannick Noah, won the French Open in 1983.

Tony Parker has still got it. Charles Leclerc, not so much. The Joakim Noah x Pierre Gasly connection has potential, though. @sportingnews @sn_nba#NBAParis #PorVida #F1 #Tifosi #Alpine https://t.co/bHfEF4xqkI

Lil Baby

Pharrell wasn't the only musical artist who attended. Lil Baby was also present and showed some love for the Pistons ahead of the game.

Lavar Ball showed up as the Bulls took on the Pistons. His son, Lonzo, plays for Chicago, but hasn't suited up this season due to injury.
