The pop star has showcased his talents on the basketball court, getting 6 points and 7 rebounds.

The game ended at a final score of 74 – 64, with Team Canada clenching the win against Team USA.

As the first Chinese to play on the NBA All-Star court, Wu says it's like a dream come true.

"I am very happy. I'm not playing my best today but I have tried my best. I really appreciate that I get the chance to play on the All-Star court. I hope that I can come again next year and I will make it better."

Team Canada was coached by Grammy-award winning artist Drake, while four-time NBA All-Star Celebrity Game champion Kevin Hart took charge of Team USA.

Also on Team Canada are "Property Brothers" stars Drew and Jonathan Scott, seven-time NBA All-Star Tracy McGrady, and TV analyst and retired basketball player Rick Fox.

Kris Wu, who rises to fame as the former member of K-pop boyband EXO, has been active in China as an actor and a singer.
