El Paso's newest celebrities got the red carpet treatment Sunday in Los Angeles thanks in part to an NBA All-Star. With the help of Scooter Braun, agent to singer Justin Bieber, LA Clippers point guard Chris Paul flew Franklin's Jon Montanez and Coronado's Mitchell Marcus to sit courtside for the Clippers game versus the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The pair became a national sensation when media outlets like CBS and ESPN picked up the story of Montanez passing to Marcus, a team manager who got to suit up on Senior Night, allowing him to score the last shot of the game.

EPISD says the two will tape an episode of "The Ellen Show" with comedian Ellen Degeneres on their Los Angeles trip.
