Kevin Hart Rumors
Despite winning the game’s MVP award somehow, Hart acknowledged that it was time to retire on The Jim Rome Show. “That little girl embarrassed me on live television,” Hart said. “It’s only going to get worse if I keep going back. I don’t want to see what’s going to happen next.”
There were plenty of celebrities at Barclays Center night for Saturday’s festivities. The list included rappers Nicki Minaj, Common and Ludacris, singer Rihanna, comedian Kevin Hart, tennis icon John McEnroe, boxer Floyd Mayweather, actors Adrian Grenier and Michael Rapaport and director Spike Lee.
Amid an ocean of anti-John Wall hot takes, there seems to be a noteworthy island of respect for the Wizards point guard: His fellow NBA players. At least, if their Twitter accounts are any indication. The web site HoopsHype conducted a survey of those accounts to see which feeds were most popular among NBA players. In first place was the NBA’s official Twitter account, followed by two players anyone would expect to see commanding great respect, LeBron James and Kevin Durant. In fourth place was comedian Kevin Hart, and then there was Wall.
The Los Angeles Lakers reserve guard was on the defense of his story after it was learned that comedian Kevin Hart told an eerily similar tale about the time a dolphin tried to kill him in similar fashion. Hart said his experience occurred in Miami and that as soon as he grabbed the dolphin’s fin, “My dolphin went straight to the bottom of the tank. He just went down.” Young made a similar claim Tuesday night, saying, “For some reason, he took me all the way to the bottom. He was trying to drown me.”
On Wednesday, before the Lakers lost 102-86 to the Portland Trail Blazers at Moda Center, Young said he wasn’t aware of Hart’s story. “Nah,” he said. “This is real, though. This really happened.” He also said he wasn’t aware that Hart’s story was similar. “For real?” he asked. “That’s crazy.”
