The worlds of basketball and animation have crossed over many times before; most notably with Michael Jordan's starring role in the 1996 film 'Space Jam'. 

But a new crop of NBA stars are to appear in the two-dimensional world of cartoons next week on Cartoon Network. 

Cleveland Cavaliers stars LeBron James and Kyrie Irving, Portland Trailblazers point guard Damian Lillard and Paul George of the Indiana Pacers will be making guest appearances on the shows 'We Bare Bears' and 'Teen Titans Go!'

Irving, George and Lillard will be appearing on the former with LeBron on the latter. 

Both episodes are part of Cartoon Network's build-up to All-Star 2016 where James and George will be lining up together in the starting five for the Eastern Conference. 

Lillard was arguably the biggest snub at this year's event. Despite averaging 24.1 points and 7.3 assists per game, he was not chosen by coaches in a Western Conference packed full of backcourt talent.

Irving is another player who will not be competing in the showpiece event. The three-time All-Star has been limited to 23 games this season through injury and John Wall, Isaiah Thomas and DeMar DeRozan were selected as the backup guards in the East.
