Prior to the NBA’s 2012 Celebrity All-Star game in Orlando, Florida, comedian Kevin Hart predicted he would score forty points. While he failed to reach that milestone, the little comedian surprised many in attendance as he won most valuable player honors, leading the EAST all-stars over the WEST by 12 points.
In a post-game interview with ESPN’s Stuart Scott, Hart sarcastically remarked, “Sometimes being an MVP isn’t about points, Stuart. It’s about what you do for your team!” The irony of that statement comes from the fact Hart was ejected from the game in the 4th quarter for wildly protesting an obvious foul.
Hart’s antics were all in good fun, however, and he certainly put on a show. He was seen throughout the game trash talking with the legendary Chris Mullin, who is easily a foot taller than Hart. It clearly showed when the two matched up against one another.
“I want to thank all my fans!” shouted Hart as he raised the MVP trophy over his head.
The teams were coached by real NBA all-stars Kevin Durant and Dwight Howard. Other known entertainers who participated included rapper J. Cole and actor J.B. Smoove.
